Experience told in the first race at Borrowdale Park today – a 1260m MR 55 Handicap reserved for locally based jockeys only.
The four claiming apprentices gave it their all but only * Rodgers Satombo on Mill Creek managed to get his nose in the door. The race was won – easily – by White Winter with Nkululeko Sibanda in the irons. Brendon McNaughton on Clash City Rocker ran second, Boniface Vengesa and Wee Doch ‘n Dorris came third, and then Mill Creek with *Satombo up.
White Winter, a five-year-old Warm White Night mare bred by Zandvleit Stud, has now won four races. She is owned by Gengiz Goksel and was sent out by the Gokhan Terzi satellite yard.
