Bajan jockeys whipped
What a day it was at the Garrison Savannah, yesterday.
In brilliant sunshine before a massive crowd and on a soft track, team Great Britain and Ireland captain Lanfranco “Frankie” Dettori, although not landing a winner, made good on his promise of “bring it on, lads” to secure a convincing victory for his side by 122 ½ points to team Barbados’ 65 ½.
Leading the points tally for the visitors were veterans Tom Queally of Frankel fame as he amassed 29 ½ points along with Jamie Spencer (29 points), as both sides logged two wins in the jockeys challenge.
Team Barbados drew first blood on the Barbados Winter Jockeys Challenge Raceday as apprentice jockey Antonio Perch, who starred on the day with three winners, got the home team off to a winning start.
