Craig Danckwerts’ handsome Flying The Flag (IRE) filly, Tigers Eagle, was a convincing winner of the 2400m Zimbabwe Derby (Gr3) at Borrowdale Park this afternoon. Cordobesa ran second and Cutback, third.
Teaque Gould was in the irons and Tigers Eagle is trained by Debra Swanson, who saddled two earlier winners – Mill Creek with Gould up, and Masaaken, ridden by Nobert Takawira.
The Derby winner was bred by Wilgerbosdrift and Mauritzfontein.
The rest of the day’s training honours went to Gokhan Terzi who won with Windsor Lane (Munashe Josi), Differentiate (Thabiso Gumede), Var Aglow (Josi), and Enrapture (Walter Shumba).
Congratulations to all the winning connections.
