Local Speed burns ’em
LOCAL SPEED certainly lived up to his name yesterday.
The eight-year-old gelding sent his connections over the moon at the Garrison Savannah by upsetting the favourite in the feature Season of Emancipation Handicap race over 1 570 metres.
Jockey Antonio Perch rode a race of precision jockeymanship, holding the reins until down the stretch, and coming from mid-pack with a late burst to get up Local Speed at the line ahead of pre-race favourite Noble Intent.
