Lily Blue has won the 2020 Zimbabwe Derby having played a waiting game until it was time to show the field a clean pair of heels.
Congratulations to trainer Bridget Stidolph, jockey Morgan Nyamagwete and owners the Gin’ll Fixit Syndicate (nominee Kirsty Stidolph) Robyn Macleod and Betty Prosser. Lily Blue was bred by Geoff Armitage.
There was a problem with Globe Master’s gate, resulting in a false start but the field quickly reloaded. Tree Of Wisdom led the way, joined by Seattle Frost who eventually took over and was going well coming up the straight until Lily Blue and Wantage joined in the chase.
Wantage, stablemate of Lily Blue was second, then Zambezi Rapids and Seattle Frost.
Congrats also to SandSport LIVE for excellent coverage of Borrowdale today.
