IMPROVING COLT DISCREETWON won yesterday’s feature race at the Garrison Savannah – the Emancipation Day Handicap over 1 800 metres.
However, pride of the afternoon’s proceedings went to trainer Richard Deane – he was firing on all cylinders with three winners on the card.
Deane picked up where he left off last race day and his tally of wins is six in the last two race days.
His first came in the second race when Aysha Syndicate’s filly Fusaichi Ridge, under jockey Paul Leacock, made light work of the others running in the Day Of National Significance Handicap for four-year-old maidens over 1 800 metres.
He repeated in the fourth race when The A Team-owned gelding Just Jiving, ridden by Reshaun Latchman at generous 11-1 odds in the Right Excellent Bussa Handicap for three-year-old and older horses over 2 000 metres.
Race 6, the Season Of Emancipation Handicap for three-year-old and older horses over 1 100 metres, gave The A Team and trainer Deane yet another win – with Boo under apprentice Antonio Whitehall on a good track.
In the pattern event for three-year-old and older horses over 1 800 metres, jockey Jalon Samuel booted home his second winner on the card, snatching victory from Lady Quill with Martin and Daniel Raizma’s Discreetwon.
Samuel kept the Roger Parravicino-trained colt at the back of the field while Meteorite, Zaltarr, Island Memories and Vandross contested the lead from the gate.
Positions changed throughout the race but this never seemed to worry Samuel, who checked his charge until the last two furlongs. With Meteorite, Vandross, Lady Quill and Sea Gypsy running ahead, Discreetwon and Samuel took full aim at the quartet.
Lady Quill brought the field into the homestretch but could not hold off Dicreetwon who went on to win.
Lady Quill, with Kenny John in the irons, took second, while Meteorite stayed on under jockey Antonio Bishop for third place. Sea Gypsy, with Paul Leacock, was fourth.
Samuel scored again in the curtain event, piloting home Sunset Farms filly The Lyrical Fox in the Slavery Abolition Act 1833 Handicap for West Indian-bred three-year-old non-winners over 1 100 metres.
Racing moves into its eighth day on August 11 when the Derby for the island’s top three-year-olds takes centre stage.
