Marie Aurore made amends for her Guineas failure with a purposeful win in yesterday’s feature, the 29th running of the Sagicor General Insurance Breeders’ Stakes and Trophy at the Garrison Savannah.

The filly, owned by Luther G. Miller and wife Suzanne, responded exceptionally well when asked for that decisive effort by jockey Antonio Perch.

As she has done in her four previous career wins, Marie Aurore sat behind the leader in the 1 800 metres race for Barbados-bred three-year-olds.

Stablemate Seventeenmillionus, who finished second, went from the gates to the front until the eventual winner drew level, swinging into the stretch. The race began to take shape going down the backstretch with the top three of Seventeenmillionus, Marie Aurore and Good Vibration bridging a gap on Go Frankie. (LY)
