Buster Barnes one leg away from Zim Triple Crown

Buster Barnes, the talented Erupt (IRE) gelding, has triumphed in two legs of Zimbabwe's prestigious Triple Crown, bringing immense pride to his owners, the Centaur Syndicate. As the spotlight now shifts to the final challenge, all eyes turn to Buster Barnes in anticipation of completing the coveted trio of victories.

On the memorable date of Sunday, April 7th, 2024, Borrowdale Park bore witness to Buster Barnes' commanding performance in the Zimbabwe 2000. Guided by the skilled hands of jockey Deryl Daniels under the guidance of trainer Debra Swanson, Buster Barnes showcased his prowess over the 2000-meter distance, crossing the finish line two lengths ahead of his nearest rival, Follow The Band. Despite an admirable effort from the filly Trust Me, who led for the majority of the journey, Buster Barnes' superior stamina proved decisive in the final stretch.

Bred by Millstream Farm, Buster Barnes' triumph stands as a testament to his exceptional lineage and the meticulous care of his breeders. The Centaur Syndicate, along with trainer Debra Swanson and jockey Deryl Daniels, deserve hearty congratulations for their part in this remarkable achievement.

As the spotlight now turns to the upcoming Zimbabwe Derby, the ultimate test of endurance spanning 2400 meters, anticipation and excitement abound. Will Buster Barnes rise to the occasion and etch his name in the annals of Zimbabwean racing history? Only time will tell.

A heartfelt congratulations to all the winning connections involved in Buster Barnes' journey to victory,.
