Infrared the cool winner
THE Caribbean’s most celebrated female trainer Liz Deane dominated the Coolmore Home Of Champions Raceday yesterday at the Garrison Savannah by delivering three winners.
In the process, Deane etched her name in the history books as Sir David Seale’s Brigadier Wood gave herwin No. 600 in a stellar career.
However, that feat would play second fiddle to the results of the 20th running of the Coolmore Home Of Champions Stakes And Trophy won by Infrared.
The Raizman brothers’ horse, six-year-old Infrared, under jockey Jalon Samuel, brought much-needed joy to the hearts of his supporters as he easily cantered home.
Ceroc and Voldemort went to the lead leaving the 1 800 metres starting point as Infrared gradually got into gear.
He easily gained control midway down the homestretch first time around and opened a gap on Ceroc and Voldermort.
