Frederick whips field
Charles Frederick showed his seven opponents a clean pair of heels on the way to striding away with the Right Excellent Bussa Handicap over 1100 metres at the Garrison Savannah on Saturday.
The Robin Bynoe, Stephen Bynoe, Richard Edghill and Sir Geoffrey Cave-owned four-year-old chestnut colt broke smartly from the gates and controlled the lead.
Favourite Jericho settled in second ahead of Pay As You Go and Halle Rose who raced as a pair in third and fourth position.
That left the chasing pack of Stealin, Peruvian and Jackmannaygap bundled together to try and play catch up. Charles Frederick never stopped running and swung into the homestretch with a one length advantage over Jericho. The latter failed to cut into Charles Frederick’s margin and settled for the runners-up spot. (LY)
