Three cheers for Deane
Trainer Richard Deane had another impressive day, winning three races yesterday at the Garrison Savannah.
Four other individuals – trainer Anderson Ward and jockeys Anderson Trotman, Antonio Whitehall and Rasheed Hughes – had doubles.
Deane’s wins keeps the pressure on leading trainer Victor Cheeseman to retain his title with the final race day of the year beckoning.
His most celebrated win came via A&A Racing’s Markos who turned back a desperate surge by Intrepid Dancer as he defeated three-year-old and older horses rated 105-85 on the good-to-firm conditions that prevailed in the feature event.
Nicely ridden by jockey Antonio Whitehall, the son of Atul out of Sandala left the gates a little slowly, but recovered quickly. Intrepid Dancer was the first out the gates before Markos picked up the running, quickly followed by Iamsogroovy, Run Alke Run and Seattle Sunshine.
