Super run

It took a superstar to brighten up things at the Garrison Savannah yesterday.

With the inclement weather adversely affecting virtually every sport across Barbados, it was the Sport of Kings that held centre stage at the eighth day of the Barbados Turf Club’s second racing season.

Superstar, beautifully ridden by Antonio Bishop, won the feature BTBA Sprint Stakes and Trophy ahead of Vitality, with Antonio Whitehall aboard, in front of an appreciative crowd that had the last laugh on a grey, rainy day due to the effects of a tropical wave affecting the island.

The well grassed turf at the Savannah was a beauty to behold, and with cricketers sitting around in pavilions as their matches were rained out or severely delayed, the stewards at the Garrison never even had to make a cautionary inspection.
