Cheeseman’s trainer of the season
THERE seems to be no way of stopping defending champion trainer Victor Cheeseman, as he once again claimed first season honours in the Barbados Turf Club’s ten-day racing season.
Now looking to make it a quadruple of training titles, Cheeseman got off to a slow start before winding up with $255 556 in earnings from 73 starters and a win percentage of 16.
Cheeseman laboured through the first few days, winning only two races, including the 2016 Coolmore “Home Of Champion” Stakes with Aysha Syndicate’s Just A Fashion.
Realising he was losing ground to the competition, he then fastened all girth belts on Gold Cup Race Day for a record five wins. These came via the David Bynoe-owned Sirius Black in the Tanglewood Stakes; Iamsogroovy in the Sandy Lane Spa Sprint, and Halle Rose, Super Lady and Northern Star. (LY)
