What A Dandy, trained by Debra Swanson and with Norbert Takawira up, won the 1000m Sunshine Cup at Borrowdale Park on Saturday – and then came Mr Greenlight, Coachella and LoveTo Bluff.
Thomas Mason trained the winner of the first race, first-timer Action Zone (Kevin Derere}, for Craig Danckwerts. After that, the Swanson yard saddled the winners of all the races.
The last race at Borrowdale on Saturday was the 2650m MTC Sunshine Cup – strictly a fun race and not part of the official card. Debra and Norbert won that also with the evergreen Cool Solution.
