SABLE FLYERS ON SUNDAY – and remembering some who went before


Eight fillies and mares are due to run in the 1260m Sable Flyers (L) at Borrowdale Park on Sunday, so let’s remember some of those who have been victorious in this race before.

In 2016 the race was won by Invincible Swan (J P van der Merwe), trained by Gokhan Terzi.

Belle Epoque won in 2018 with Apprentice M Mjoko in the irons, trained by Kirk Swanson.

The Swanson yard also won the Sable Flyers in 2018 and 2019 with In The Mood. Francois Herholdt was aboard in 2018, and the following year Norbert Takawira was up.

White Winter, trained by Gokhan Terzi and ridden by Nicky Sibanda, scored in 2020.
