Race day in tribute to Marshall
Following a very successful Barbados Winter Jockeys’ Challenge last week, the Barbados Turf Club now stages the W.C. Bill Marshall Memorial Race Day tomorrow at the Garrison Savannah, beginning at 1 p.m.
Racing enthusiasts should be in for a thrill with the eight entertaining races on the third day of the final season.
The two-year-olds will take centre stage on the day in race five, with the Grade I William Bill Marshall Memorial Creole Classic Stakes And Trophy over 1 570 metres, but there should also be a few other showstoppers.
Among them is the Coo Bird Handicap for three-year-old and older horses rated 140-120, but which is also open to horses rated 121 and below over 1 800 metres. Of the eight entered, Knight Rider and Jakesam are woefully short of form but the others are magnificently matched.
