Heir Line, under a brave ride from Keagan de Melo, went wide, found the front, and held on to win the $60 000 Republic Cup at Borrowdale Park this afternoon.
Simona ran on gamely from the back of the field but couldn’t catch the four-year-old son of Dynasty. Bush Pilot and Master Switch finished third and fourth.
Trained by Kirk Swanson and bred by Varsfontein Stud, Heir Line is owned by Dave Ward, Gary Carter, Vikkas Patel, Sean Gorringe, Paula Lewis and Paul and Ursula Gorringe.
Congratulations to all the winning connections and thanks to the sponsors of this race.
