They are nine very competitive races carded for today at the Garrison Savannah, the fourth day of the Barbados Turf Club’s fist racing season. Race seven is the feature Rotherley Construction Inc. Stakes & Trophy, for non West Indian Bred 3-year-olds, going 1570 metres.
The Lord Michael Taylor owned Daga, comes out for the first time this year after winning her last two starts last year, and will be looking to make it three straight. Nomoreginrog ran a beauty last time out when winning. Royal Spirit, is capable of coming up with a big run here, while Giovedi, in her first start showed signs of ability when finishing a good third.
Thanks to Rotherley Construction Inc, they are some supporting features, starting with race three, where the winner looks to be Vitality. Sable companion, Must Be In The Money, could be a danger, as could be Jack Is Back.
Race four, is the Rotherley Construction Inc. Sprint, for 3-year-olds and older rated 0-145, going 1100 metres. Kingdora, although having the big weight of 133 pounds, could be the one to beat, while stable companion Purr Class looks to be the danger at the weights.
The final supporting feature is the Rotherley Construction. BTBA Sales Graduates 3-year-old Fillies Stakes & trophy (CR) for West Indian Bred 3-year-old Fillies, going 1100 metres. The Sir Charles Williams owned and bred flying filly, Slip Stream, should be able to show this field a clean pair of heels in this one, while Reprise, Fernandina and Sweet Bottom Suzy, could be playing catch up for the whole race.
The days first race is for 4-year-olds and over rated 0-110, going 1800 metres. Any of the six running are capable of winning. The improving Conquest, steps up in class after coming off two straight wins, Ring Time is better off at the weights this time around against Bird Watch.
Race two is for the 3-year-olds and older rated 0-60, going 1800 metres. Just Jiving likes the soft ground, and won last time out and should be in the money again, Uneverno, Double Dagger and Uncle Jerry, could be the others concerned in the finish.
Race five for the 3-year-olds and older rated 0-75, going 1570 metres, is another very competitive race that should end up with a good superfecta payout to any lucky punter getting the four horses in the correct order. Captain Sully, Up The Ante, Sweet Enough, and Wash Brook and Zaltarr, could find themselves fighting out the finish.
In race eight, it could be Savannah Sun, Sweet And Sour, Bustamante, Unreal and Sophie making up the superfecta combination.
In the final race Lady Patrick is coming off of two good runs and has to be considered. Midnight Express, Assanova, and Inherit The Wind are dangers.
