When she made her move there was no catching the flying Simona in the 1800m OK Grand Challenge at Borrowdale Park this afternoon.
Trained by Bridget Stidolph and with Calvin Habib in the irons, the five-year old Gimmethegreenlight (AUS) mare won this race in 2018 – and came to the fore again today.
She is owned by the Newbury Racing Syndicate (Pty) Ltd (nominee Mr D E Evans), and was bred by Nadeson Park.
Fareeq, with Hennie Greyling up, valiantly tried to close the widening gap, and he was followed across the line by Verdier and Peggson.
This was Simona’s 10th victory.
