This is the second leg of the Triple Crown and is designed for three year old horses only. The race had initially drawn 10 horses but Ghokan Terzi’s Their First Song was scratched at the final acceptances. All the trainers at Borrowdale are represented in the race except Sebastien D’Aquino who did not nominate a horse for the event.
Lisa Harris Casey Dance, which has picked up form, is a favourite for many. Although the filly has been drawn wide at six, she will carry only 55,5 kgs. Most of the horses are carrying 58 kgs. Olympic Goal from the Corne Spies stable is also on 55,5 kgs and has been lucky with the draw after being placed in lane two.
Apart from Casey Dance, Zimbabwe’s champion trainer also sends out Lucky Sam. But it is Alyson Wright who has the highest number of horses after all her three entrants were accepted. Three Heron Boy, Typing, and Mattox Eye are the only Zimbabwean bred horses in the race.
Ghokan Terzi is pinning his hopes on Porterhouse while Kirk Swanson is eyeing the $11,000 stake money with Ernie Or Else and Stirling Road.Post published in: Sport
