New Roles For Familiar Faces


Racing returns to Borrowdale Park on Sunday and some very familiar faces now have new roles.


Former Borrowdale Apprentice Jockey O’Meara Rusike has joined Tomcat Racing with a view to becoming an assistant trainer in due course. In addition, former assistant trainers, Vanessa Birketoft of Vee Racing, and Debra Swanson of Swanson Racing, now have their Trainers Licenses.


O’Meara has recently returned from South Africa after a stint at the South African Apprentice Academy followed by three months at Drakenstein Stud.


And do not forget…Rodgers Satombo is now a fully-fledged jockey and so can no longer claim.


Due to COVID lockdowns and so forth the last Borrowdale Park race meeting took place on July 2, and this will be the first meeting of the 2021/22 racing season. There are seven races on Sunday’s card and Final Fields are published on this site.


The first race on Sunday is due off at 12.35 pm and the feature race, the 1000m Borrowdale Plate, at 16.05.
