Has Call The Wind No Equal?

Call The Wind has now won all her six starts, adding the Nadia Farina Silver Slipper (L) to her tally at Borrowdale Park on Sunday.

This is the second leg of Zimbabwe’s Triple Tiara, and Call The Wind won the first leg, the Fillies Classic, in February.

It seems Gengiz Goksel’s champion three-year-old filly stands alone amongst her peers.  Trained by Vanessa Birketoft of V Racing, with Calvin Habib in the irons, Call The Wind made every post a winning one. The daughter of Twice Over (GB) finished 3.50 lengths clear of Tigers Eagle and her breeders, Ascot Stud (Pty) Ltd, can be proud.

Earlier in the afternoon, V Racing saddled another two winners. Mustatheef (C Habib) won the 1100m Coral Tan Maiden Plate, and Mind Master (C Habib) triumphed in the 1450m Tiger Cat MR 85 Handicap.

Meanwhile The Lily Blue we know was back at Borrowdale Park on Sunday, winning the 2000m Changa Breeders Champions Cup (L) convincingly.

Jarryd Penny and the daughter of Black Minnaloushe (USA) played a waiting game until the field turned for home, but when Lily Blue changed gear it was race over. Heir Line, Bugatti Blue and Yarraman filled the minor places – winning margins 1.75, 5.00, and 2.00 lengths.

Lily Blue, trained by Bridget Stidolph has now won 12 races, and she was bred by Geoff Armitage out of a Kitalpha (USA) mare. The five-year-old star is owned by Robyn Macleod and the Gin’ll Fix It Syndicate (nominee Kirsty Stidolph).
