Mighty battle for Gold Cup

Favourite Renaisance Frolic and defending champion Celestial Storm are on course for a mighty showdown at the historic Garrison Savannah today.

Shortly after 5 p.m. thousands of racing enthusiasts will go wild following the completion of this country’s premier sporting event, the Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup.

At least four horses stand a great chance of taking the top prize – Renaisance Frolic, Celestial Storm, Night Prowler and Rising Star.

There should be no doubt Renaisance Frolic holds a class advantage on paper, but Celestial Storm by rights owns the key to the savannah and a shot at greatness, the Gold Cup and a purse of $214 000.

No horse that Sir David Seale’s has shipped in from the United Stakes of America has ever won the Gold Cup.
