Champion jockey Rasheed Hughes electrified the Garrison Savannah on yesterday’s Errol Barrow Day with a sterling display in the irons to land a quintet of wins.

The three-time ruler of the Barbados Turf Club’s jockey championship ran hot from the day’s fourth race, winning with Melrose Racing’s colt Zensational.

The duo turned away the early threat of Filmores to make all the running in the Crane Resort Trophy Handicap over 1 800 metres. Thereafter, it was the Hughes show, which he closed out with a gem astride Bills Inc.’s nine-year-old gelding Voldemort in the Hilton Hotel Barbados Resort Trophy Handicap.

Nominated for both the Tanglewood and the Spa Sprint on March 7, Voldemort sprinted from the gates before Island Cotton and Joshua swooped by him down the backstretch. (LY)
