One of the closest finishes at Borrowdale Park for quite a while occurred in the 1600m MR 50 Handicap on Friday – and two claiming appies actually stole this show. The winning margins were: 0.05 – 0.05 and 0.50 lengths.
*Rodgers Satombo on Supa Memories and *Walter Shumba on Crown Brewed put their heads down and gave it their all with *Satombo snatching the verdict by a whisker.
Brendon McNaughton and Rose Diamond (third) were conceding oodles of weight and what a finish.
Great stuff – it is moments like this that get people hooked on racing.
