The Kirk Swanson yard, with Norbert Takawira in the irons, paid two visits to the Borrowdale Park winner’s enclosure on Sunday.
First up was the Pathfork mare, Mill Creek, who narrowly held off Jardin in the 1100m MR 65 Handicap. She is owned by Messrs C G & R Bonthrone & Mrs J B Bonthrone, Ms S P Moyo, Mr G Tafeni and Dr Ben Mugabe. Bred by Avontuur Thoroughbred Farm this was Mill Creek’s fifth victory.
Another close finish came in the 1900m MR 70 Handicap when the Swanson-trained Haga Haga came from behind to beat Tomcat Racing’s Seattle Frost by a whisker. The seven-year-old Haga Haga, by Mullins Bay (GB), has now won nine races. He is owned by Drs Ben Mugabe and Ronald Mhizha.
Well done everyone!
