IN THE MOOD EASILY…ON A GOOD DAY FOR THE SWANSON STABLE

In The Mood 1260 Sable Flyers (L) Herholdt

In The Mood romped off with the Sable Flyers (L) handicap at Borrowdale Park. From the 200m mark the 1260m event was virtually done and dusted – winning margins 5.50, 7.00 and 9.50 lengths.

Elegant Beauty came second followed by Summer Spin and Roberta’s Passion. Seven Kingdoms was scratched earlier on a veterinary certificate

The winner is a four-year-old filly by Bold Silvano out of a Kahal (GB) mare. Francois Herholdt was in the irons.

Congratulations to owner John Koumides and the Kirk Swanson yard. In The Mood has now won three races and been placed 6 times from 9 starts. She was bred by Summerhill Stud.

Kirk saddled three winners during Sunday afternoon, the first being Three To Tango (Sherman Brown), who finished 2.50 lengths clear of Hyper Jet in the 1200m Maiden Plate. This was the three-year-old Gray’s Inn (USA) colt’s second outing.

He was bred by Geoff Armitage. and is owned by Mr C.M. and Mrs E.B. Shepherd, Kylie Bonthrone and John Koumides. Well done everyone.

Haga Haga (Norbert Takawira) completed his personal hat-trick in the 1800m MR 60 Handicap, holding off Philanthropy by 0.75 lengths. The son of Mullins Bay (GB) played a waiting game until it seemed all over bar the shouting, then came with a devastating dash along the paint.

Bred by Summerhill Stud, Haga Haga is owned by Ben Mugabe and Ron Mhizha. Congratulations – this is becoming a habit.

Quite frankly I was afraid on this occasion that 61 kgs and an extra 100m would be a step too far, but how wrong can one be?
