Sygone will make his bid for the 2019 Triple Crown at Borrowdale Park today. If you live in Harare please be there to shout and scream.
This doesn’t happen often. The Zimbabwe Triple Crown was inaugurated at Borrowdale Park in 1980 and has only been won eight times since then.
Entry to the racecourse is free. The first race is at 12.35 pm and the 2400m Zimbabwe Derby – third and final leg of the Triple Crown series of races – is due off at 15.30.
