There are four apprentice jockeys – Munashe Josi, Rodgers Satombo, Omeara Rusike and Walter Shumba – riding at Borrowdale Park and collecting qualifying rides.
Unfortunately, due to the small fields and a limited number of races, they do not get as many opportunities as they might at a larger centre, but at the last meeting, Rodger Satombo came close to recording his first win.
Cool Solution (Satombo) went down by a whisker to stable companion Supa Memories over 1260m on June 1, and this pair team up again in the 1200m MR 60 Handicap on Saturday. Of course, it is another race and another day, but plenty of people will be hoping Rodgers makes it to the Number One Box this time.
This is quite a competitive field and Omeara Rusike on Switchblade must also have a chance.
