Sirius Black blows away Breeders’ field

VICTOR CHEESEMAN TRAINEE Sirius Black made light work of his seven opponents to run away with the 19th running of the featured Harmony General Breeders’ Sprint, in memory of Francis Cozier, over 1 100 metres at the Garrison Savannah yesterday.

The race, which carried a total purse of $32 176, was never in question as the horses left the starting gates with Sirius Black moving into a stalking position behind the early leader Slip Stream who held the lead up until the quarter pole.

It was at that time that jockey Rickey Walcott, one of three riders on the day to score a double, made his move. And it was a perfect one.

Owned by David Bynoe, Stephen Walcott and Marina Corbin, Sirius Black, the son of Janak out of Annabel Jane picked up the running and casually trotted across the winning line by four lengths without breaking a sweat.
