British jockey expects big run
FIRST-TIME JOCKEY in the Sandy Lane Gold Cup, Sean Levey, is hoping for a big run in the Caribbean’s biggest horse race at the Garrison Savannah on Saturday.
The 30-year-old English international, who will sit in the saddle of American horse Bodie Tap for the Gold Cup told NATION SPORT that despite not being familiar with the track he was confident ahead of his first mounting Barbados.
“I’m looking forward to it. This is really a big race. I’m not worried about the conditions. My horse is in very good form no doubt about that. Obviously, he is not a local horse and he would not have been around this track before; that is the only thing I am worried about. He seems very versatile and I’m hoping for a big run,”Levey said.
“It’s tighter than normal tracks I’m used to going around but I have a couple favourite tracks and I think I will be alright,” added the experienced Levey, who has running starts in Europe and Africa.
