2022 CASTLE TANKARD

WHAT A BEAUTY – GREAT STUFF

The four-year-old filly, True Beauty, was facing the toughest test of her career and came through in style, winning the US$50 000 Castle Tankard (Gr1) at Borrowdale Park On May 7, 2022.

Only Him, also a four-year-old, came second, followed by Holy Land and Wantage.

Owned by Ms SP Moyo and Mr G Tafeni, True Beauty is trained by Thomas Mason. and Denis Schwarz was in the irons. Congratulations to the connections on winning Zimbabwe’s most prestigious race.  What more can one say!

By Skitt Skizzle and out of a Silvano (GER) mare, True Beauty was bred by Bosworth Farm Stud, and this was her sixth victory.

Once again, the sponsors, Delta Beverages, set the scene for a spectacular and memorable day.
