The Sandy Lane Gold Cup, the most prestigious horse race in the southern Caribbean, runs off at the Garrison Savannah on Saturday. In the lead-up to the big race, horse racing writer Lindon Yarde begins a series of profiles on the horses.

Owner: Dwayne Thwaites

Trainer: Kenny Joseph.

1 800 attempts: 1

Wins: 1.

This seven-year-old son of Scat Daddy out of Antique Crystal has been victorious in four of his 14 career starts in United States of America, winning in a maiden claiming on August 9, 2015, at Saratoga over 1800 metres.

Burndines set the fractions and responded well when challenged in the stretch, to hold on to win by a neck. Almost two months later, he journeyed to Belmont Park for his second turf win in a starter allowance race by one length running again from the front at a mile and one sixteenth.

On April 16, 2016, Burdines also competed at Laurel Park, Maryland, where he had a commanding six-length lead in the starter allowance race over a mile. The lead dwindled, but he tenaciously held on for a half-length victory.

Burdines’ career stats show he has a tendency of winning every other race, on various surfaces, and at different tracks.

No statistics have been available for his sojourn in Antigua and Barbuda since his arrival there. (LY)
