Sir David, Samuel Gold Cup stars
Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup 2020 is over and the kings, owner Sir David Seale and jockey Jalon Samuel, are perched on their thrones.
Business magnate, Sir David won his eighth Gold Cup last Saturday at the historic Garrison Savannah.
For his investments, Sir David, who as been a faithful supporter of horse racing for a half-century, bringing in some of the best horses, is richly deserving of his success.
Samuel also became the Gold Cup’s most successful jockey winning the race for a record fifth time. His first win came astride Dancin David in 2012, followed by Dorsett 2016 and 2017, Sir Dudley Digges and Night Prowler.
The 26-year-old Samuel has an outstanding Gold Cup win percentage of 50 having made 10 appearances in the Caribbean’s premier horse race.
