Infrared can salute his connections and racing enthusiasts today at the Garrison Savannah with another impeccable performance in the 51st Anniversary Of Independence Handicap over 1 800 metres.
Owned by the Raizman brothers, the colt has racked up three wins from his last five starts, including an incisive victory in the Final Handicap over a similar group at today’s distance.
