Giovedi wins feature Kendal Moon Trophy

Barbados Advocate by Charlie Heath | 4/15/2012

The Bill & Hayley Blevins owned four-year-old dark bay/brown colt Giovedi, ridden by Kenny John, won the feature Kendal Moon Trophy (Handicap) for three-year-olds and older yesterday at the Garrison Savannah.

It was a very enterprising ride by Kenny John, as he broke Giovedi smartly from the outside gate and settled the colt behind pace setter Captain Sully, ridden by Desmond Bryan.

As they reached the three furlong marker John put Giovedi ahead of Captain Sully, while the Sir David Seale-owned Dancin David, with Anderson Trotman in the irons, followed in third.

At the two furlong pole it was still Giovedi, Captain Sully and Dancing David in the lead, while the filly Daga, with Reshawn Latchman in the irons, could be seen making up ground on the leaders. However, there was no stopping Giovedi as he ran out an easy winner.

Daga got up to be second, while Dancin David finished third, with Captain Sully holding on for fourth.

No jockey on the day was able to land two winners. However, that was not the case with the trainers, as Victor Cheeseman dominated that category by saddling three winners on the eight-race card. He started by winning race four with rank outsider Dunwiddat, for owner Ian Corbin. Cheeseman then won race six with A.P. Vincero for owners Luther Miller III JP and Suzanne Miller, and finished the day by winning the final race on the card with Lune De Barachois for Lewin Godding.

Andy Ward was the only other trainer to saddle more than one winner, as he saddled two winners for owner Lord Michael Taylor.

Racing continues on Saturday, April 28. (CH)

Jalon Samuel a rising star

A relaxed and excited Jalon Samuel speaking to the Barbados Advocate after his Sandy Lane Gold Cup triumphs.
 
Barbados Advocate by Charlie Heath | 3/16/2012

Horse racing in Barbados, in recent years, has not been able to produce any star performers, but now that seems to be in the past with the rise of a young jockey by the name of Jalon Samuel, who at 18 years old is without question not only a star on the horizon, but he shows the quality of becoming a superstar.

Jalon started riding at the tender age of eight years old. He would go to the Garrison Paddock on mornings, when still at school, and ask the trainers to let him sit on the horses when the grooms were taking them back to the Dalkeith Paddock after they had worked.

As he got older, it was Anne Deane who was instrumental in helping the youngster improve his riding skills, as she had done for so many before him.

He was only 14 years old when he was granted a exercise licence, and at 15, he was granted his apprentice jockey licence. In the first race on the second day, November 8, 2008, after being granted his licence, he won on a horse named Kanon, and his career had started.

It was not long before he became in demand, not only in Barbados but in Trinidad. Between September and December of 2009, the former Lester Vaughan student had chalked up 16 winners, of which 10 of those wins came at Santa Rosa Park in Trinidad.

By 2010, he was showing exceptional skills, and won both the apprentice and open jockey titles.

2011 was a bittersweet year for Jalon, as he won the prestigious Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup that year on Show Me The Money, but lost it in the Stewards Room, which would have been a devastating blow to any 17-year-old.

Between November 2011 and March 2012, this youngster has shown what he is made of, as he has come up with three big wins, starting with the TT$250 000 Stewards Cup in Trinidad.

On Gold Cup day, this year, he rode the Joseph Brothers, Attie III and Saffie Joseph Jr., owned Areutalkintome, trained by David Yearwood, in the supporting feature Sandy Lane Spa Sprint. When asked why he chose Areutalkintome although the horse had not raced for 15 months, he informed this newspaper that he was working him, and he was going as good as before he had the accident. He recalls the neck-and-neck battle in the straight run with Purr Class, who was able to put a neck on him mid-way up the straight, but he was still able to get enough out of Areutalkintome at the wire to get his head back in front.

He admitted that the win on Areutalkintome gave him a real confidence booster coming in-to the Gold Cup, which he then won on Dancin David.

When asked if it was sweet revenge winning the Gold Cup on Dancin David, the young jockey said it was gratifying, more than revenge. He said that Show Me The Money ran a big race for him last year when he easily won, and he thought he was going well enough entering the straight not to have caused interference, but the Stewards ruled that he did, as did the Appellant Stewards on appeal, and in racing that is where the story ends, and you move on.

When questioned as to why he said, “Let them take this away from me,” after winning on Dancin David, he responded by saying that in the excitement and emotion of being able to win this race again, and knowing that he had a very clear run throughout the race, he was only expressing that there is no way this one would be taken away from him, and it was his to keep, and nothing else.

When asked if he was disappointed when the race was taken away from him last year, he said that he was disappointed, as any other jockey would be, but he never let it get to him, as he felt that there would be many more opportunities to win in the future, plus he had a lot of support from his family, friends and fans.

Asked how he got to ride on Dancin David? He says that is a long story, as he was originally to ride John Brian, but after working Dancin David one morning, he asked trainer Liz Deane, and Sir David’s son, Richard, if he could ride him instead, as he worked like a winner. At that stage Dancin David was in the race, and later he became a reserve and he stuck with him, “and he did not let him down, he is a good horse”.

After winning one of Trinidad’s major races, the Stewards Cup, where he beat the favoured Bruceontheloose by a short head, on the Errol Stables owned, Glen Mendez trained 9/1 shot Signal Alert, he then won the Spa Sprint and the Gold Cup.

That was followed by another opportunity, the chance to ride at Gulfstream Park in the United States.

Jalon says he was fortunate that trainer, Saffie Joseph Jr., invited him to Gulfstream Park, where he now trains, and he accepted the invitation.

“Trainer Joseph told me he had Town of Towns running, for owner Sir David Seale, and he asked Sir David’s son, Richard, if he could get the ride if he could get his papers sorted out in time, and they immediately agreed,” and he won the race, for which he thanked them for the opportunity.

Asked if winning with his very first ride in the United States was as sweet as the other three, Jalon quickly agrees, as he says he was riding with some of the best jockeys in North America.

He kept Town of Towns just off the leaders, and made his move at the 1/16 pole up the rail, beating Strapping Groom with Edgar Prado in the irons by 1/2 length.

In addition to his 86 wins at home, he has scored many wins in Trinidad and Martinique, and he has now added a win in the United States. He also had a ride at Windsor in the UK, when he rode a horse for Sir Michael Stoute.

We all know that many jockeys suffer with weight problems, and when asked what body weight he would like to weigh in at, he says it is his ambition to try and keep his body weight at 113 pounds when riding.

The young rider says he will continue riding here, and will grasp every opportunity to ride in any other country whenever the opportunity arises.

He told the Barbados Advocate that his ambition was to one day ride in the Breeders’ Cup races in the United States and the Kentucky Derby.

The young jockey insisted that he would not be where he is today without the support of his family, friends and race fans, for which he thanked them very much.

The Barbados Advocate, who since 2009 spotted Jalon Samuel – a star in the making, wishes the young rider continued success. (CH)

Champion Jockey will ride in BTC’s fourth racing day

Charlie Heath | Barbados Advocate | Fri, 10th February2012

RACE fans are in for a treat tomorrow at the Garrison Savannah, the fourth day of the Barbados Turf Club’s first racing season for 2012, as ace jockey Patrick Husbands BSS, will be in action on Rothereley Construction Inc. Raceday.

Husbands starts the day in race one, aboard Must Be The Money. In race two he rides Verden, and follows that up in race three, on the favoured, Run For Your Money.

He takes a break in race four, and returns to ride in race five, where he rides Dancin David, who will be having his first run in Barbados, and at the same time trying to get into the Gold Cup in March. Husbands has already won on this 5-year-old at Woodbine, Canada.

In race seven he picks up the ride on Preach To Me, who will be looking
to make it two straight wins.

With Anderson Trotman, Jalon Samuel, and the inform apprentices Antonio Whitehall, and Reshawn Latchman in action, along with Patrick Husbands, the Garrison looks like the place to be, as there is sure to be plenty action! (CH)

Graeme Hill wins feature Coolmore ‘Home of Champions’ Stakes & Trophy

Kyle Carter pilots Graeme Hill (left) to victory in the Coolmore ‘Home of Champions’ Stakes & Trophy, for 3-year-olds and over, rated 140 and below.

Barbados Advocate | Charlie Heath | 1/29/2012

THE Bill and Hayley Blevin-owned four-year-old chestnut colt, Graeme Hill, upset them all in the feature Coolmore “Home of Champions” Stakes & Trophy, for 3-year-olds and over, rated 140 and below, going 1800 metres, yesterday at the Garrison Savannah, the third day of the Barbados Turf Club’s first racing season.

The Jonathan Simpson-trained colt was kept off the early pace set by Captain Sully, Little Man Arran, and Kingdora.

With five furlongs to go, Kyle Carter on Graeme Hill could see the whole field in front of him.

At the three-furlong marker, Little Man Arran and Giovedi, stable companions of Graeme Hill, moved to the lead.

With two furlongs to go, Graeme Hill was breathing down their necks, and as they straightened up he picked up the running to go on to an easy victory. Reshawn Latchman on Giovedi finished second, giving owners Bill and Hayley Blevin, and trainer Jonathan Simpson, a one-two finish.

Indanger, owned by Daniel & Martin Raizman, trained by Roger Parravicino, and ridden by Antonio Bishop, was third. Little Man Arran held on for fourth.

The supporting feature, the Diamonds International/Montblanc Challenge Sprint Trophy (Handicap), for 4-year-olds and over, rated 100 & below, sprinting 1100 metres, was won by the Boston John-trained Janaki, owned by the Estate of Yusuf Mongroo, and ridden by Kenny John.

John had Janaki on the pace from the start, along with Dessert Orchid, Vitality, and Dark Night.

Turning for home, John asked Janaki for an effort and he immediately responded by going on to win. The Lord Michael Taylor-owned Run Alke Run, trained by Andy Ward, with Kyle Carter in the irons, ran on strongly to finish second. Third was Run Alke Run’s stable companion, Istanbul, with Rico Walcott. Fourth was Greeley Gone West.
Reshawn Latchman and Kyle Carter both won two races on the day’s card.

No trainer saddled more than one winner on the day.

Racing continues on Saturday, February 11. (CH)

Kendal Moon shows her class

 

Kendal Moon showed she is pure class in winning yesterday’s feature Diamonds International/Montblanc Meisterstuck (Handicap) at the Garrison Savannah. Jockey Jonathan Grant was in the saddle for the winning ride and the pair are seen here in front of the grand stand after the race with trainer Andrew Nunes (second right) and a supporter.

Charlie Heath | 1/3/2012 | Barbados Advocate

The Sir Charles Williams owned and bred 4-year-old bay filly, Kendal Moon, showed what a classy filly she is, when she won yesterday’s feature Diamonds International/Montblanc Meisterstuck (Handicap) at the Garrison Savannah.

The Andrew Nunes trained filly, last year won the last two jewels of the triple crown, the Midsummer Classic and the United Insurance Barbados Derby. Racing against the older horses yesterday at the Garrison Savannah, on the first day of the Barbados Turf Clubs first racing season, she showed that she will be a force to be reckoned with as a 4-year-old.

Leaving the gate, Jonathan Grant was content to keep Kendal Moon, just off the torrid pace being set by Preach To Me, Charge It, and Indanger. It was not until approaching the two furlong marker that Grant asked the filly to get closer to the leaders, and by the time they straightened up for home, the filly quickened beautifully, to go on and win from the Daniel & Martin Reizman owned, Roger Parravicino trained, Indanger, with Antonio Bishop in the irons. It was also a great run from the 5-year-old Indanger, as he was on the pace from the off. Third was the Christopher Gibbs owned Ring Time, who was out paced early, and came with a late run from way off the pace, with Antonio Whitehall. Fusaichi Ridge finished fourth.

The Diamonds International/Montblanc Tribute (Condition Race) for West Indian Bred 2-year-olds, (At the time of entry), going 1100 metres, was won by Finbar, owned by Jerry Alleyne, trained by Ken Stanton, and ridden by Antonio Bishop. Finbar, was the only horse in the race that had faced the starter before. He broke from the gate smartly, and did exactly what was expected of him, and that was to improve his position. He ran out an easy winner, and showed that he will be one to watch in the future. The Aysha Syndicate owned, Iamsogroovy, trained by Stephen Bynoe, and ridden by Reshawn Latchman, ran on well to finish second, while the Lord Michael Taylor owned, Verden, trained by Andy Ward and ridden by Paul Eddery was third, with Water Moon fourth.

The 2-year-olds of 2011 Sales Graduates Futurity (Condition Race), for Barbados Bred 2-year-olds (At time of Entry) going 1100 metres, was won by the Lord Michael Taylor owned, Andy Ward trained Verkauf, bred by Bruce Bailey.

Paul Eddery wasted no time in putting Verkauf to the front, and as hard as Kyle Carter, on the Raphael Green, Victor Cheeseman trained Capere tried, there was no catching Verkauf, and Capere had to settle for second. The Lady Williams owned, Gorgeous, trained by Andrew Nunes with Jonathan Grant in the saddle was third, and Mudlark finished fourth.

Jalon Samuel was the only jockey to land two winners on the card.

Racing continues on Errol Barrow Day, Saturday January 21. (CH)

TWO DIAMONDS INTERNATIONAL/MONT BLANC FEATURE RACES ON MONDAY

Pictured “Show me the money winner Victor Chandler Stakes & Trophy, Dec 26th, 2011

Charlie Heath | Sunday 1st January, 2012 | Barbados Advocate

The Barbados Turf Club will be starting the first racing season of 2012, on Monday, January 2, with an eight race card that includes two feature races sponsored by Diamond International/ MontBlanc.

The first to be run is the Diamonds International/ MontBlanc Tribute (Condition Race) for West Indian bred 3-year-old Maidens (At time of entry), going 1570 metres.

This race has attracted 19 horses, of which three are scratched, leaving the race over subscribed at time of declaration by four.

What makes this race very interesting is the fact that most of the horses have not yet raced, and those that have showed little or no form,which means that the winner could come from one of those that have not yet raced, and punters could end up collecting some very good dividends.

Of those that have raced Finbar showed the most promise.

The second feature is the Diamonds International/ MontBlanc Meisterstuck (Handicap) for 3-year-olds & older rated 88-110 (At time of entry) (Also open to 3-year-old & older horses rated 87 and below) (At time of entry).

What a race this should be! Again this race is over subscribed, as 16 horse are declared to start, which means they are four reserves. The top weight of 130 pounds is allotted to Ring Time, while Purr Class takes 128, Charge It 125, and Kingdora 124 pounds. Also entered is the 2011 Derby winner Kendal Moon, who has the light weight of 109 pounds.

This is a superfecta betting race, and the lucky punters that can get the correct combination, could well find themselves collecting a very good dividend.  (CH)

Racing gets underway at 1.00 pm on the day.

Zoom looking for repeat victory on Boxing Day

12/25/2011 | Charlie Heath | Barbados Advocate
The Gay Smith-owned Zoom, who won the Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup earlier this year, is looking to repeat that performance on Boxing Day in the feature Victor Chandler Stakes & Trophy for three-year-olds and over, going 1 570 metres. John Brian, Daga and Fusaichi Ridge could be dangers.

The Diamonds International/ Montblanc Challenge Stakes & Trophy, for West Indian Bred two-year-olds, going 1570 metres, looks like it could end in a very exciting finish.

Aston Martin, a winner over 1 100 metres, was beaten last time out over 1 570 metres by Dipitinmoney and Roars. However, if held up and brought with a run, he is very capable of
winning. His dangers could be Dipitinmoney, Roars and Something Happenin.

The supporting feature on the card is the Boxing Day International Trophy (Condition Race) for two-year-olds with preference given to non-West Indian bred, going 1 570 metres.

This could be a straight battle between Indian Officer and Discreetwon.

One of the features of the day is the battle for the 2011 Jockey Title. Anderson Trotman and Jalon Samuel, two of the best jockeys riding at the Garrison, are now locked on 31 wins each, with Trotman holding the edge with 25 seconds to Samuel’s 17.

Last year Samuel won the title and will be out to do the same this year, while Trotman will be doing his best to wrestle it for him. Post time for the first race is 12 p.m. (CH)

The Diamonds International/ Montblanc Challenge Stakes & Trophy, for West Indian Bred 2-year-olds, going 1570 metres, looks like it could end in a very exciting finish.

DIAMONDS INT/MONTBLANC STAKES & TROPHY VERY COMPETITIVE

Charlie Heath | Friday 23rd December, 2011 | Barbados Advocate

The Diamonds International/Montblanc Challenge Stakes & Trophy for West Indian bred 2-year-olds, going 1570 metres, is one of the most competitive races on the Barbados Turf Club’s 10 race card on Boxing Day.

Ten of the best 2-year-olds in training are down to face starter Mark Batson. Dipitinmoney, is coming off of two straight wins, of which both are over 1570 metres, so she could start as the one favoured to win.

Rickoshey, is a good looker, and in only his second start last time out he won, and has to be considered.

Something Happenin, shocked all at the Garrison Savannah on 19 November, when she won first time out at odds of 58/1. She finished as though the 1570 metres should not trouble her.

Aston Martin, is a handsome colt, that is yet to win, finishing second to Dipitinmoney last time out. Should this fellow be held up, and given anything near a good ride, he could be very difficult to beat.

Secret Of Success is a winner, while Roars, Southern Lights, Divine Destiny, and Capere are all capable contenders. (CH)

Charlie Heath | Thursday 22nd December, 2011 | Barbados Advocate

The final feature on the day is the Victor Chandler Stakes & Trophy, for 3-year-olds and over, going 1570 metres, with a purse of $50,000.  This one is over subscribed, as 13 horses have taken entry, which means there is one reserve, which is the creole Istanbul.

Seven horses will take the top weight of 128 pounds, and they are Zoom, Bipin, Show Me The Money, Bird Watch, John Brian, Mingun Temple, and Charge It. (CH)

Very competitive field for Barbados Guineas

The Barbados Advocate | April 16, 2011

Race seven is the feature race on the Barbados Turf Club’s 8th day of racing at the Garrison Savannah today. It is the 61st running of the Barbados Guineas, which is for West Indian bred 3-year-olds, going 1570 metres.

This year’s race is unique, as seven of the horses in the 12 horse field have been bred by Sir Charles Williams, of which Kendal Moon is owned by him, while Slip Stream is owned by him and his wife Lady Williams. Both are very exciting fillies that are expected to be in the mix up at the end.

Four of the others Istanbul, Reprise, Island Memories and Vitality were purchased by Lord Michael Taylor from Sir Charles Williams, and are in the capable hands of trainer Andy Ward. All four have been performing extremely well, and are already closing in on $300 000 in earnings.

Lord Michael Taylor and trainer Andy Ward also have Must Be In The Money in the race, and all five are capable of giving a good account of themselves. At the end it could be Instanbul, Reprise, Kendal Moon, Vitality and Island Memories fighting out the finish.

The supporting feature is race five, the Coo Bird Handicap for 3-year-olds and older rated 140 and below, going 1570 metres. The ones to follow could be Bouncebak, Charge It and Ring Time.
Post time for the first race is 1.30pm, and the ones to follow could be Atomic Bomb, Randy Andy and Midnight Express.

In race two, Who’s Staying, Tornade, Up The Ante and King Of The Jungle could be the ones to follow.
The filly Daga, is coming off of three straight wins, and should be the one to beat in race three, while good runs are expected from Byhookorbycreek, and Royal Spirit.

The ones to follow in race four could be, The Milk Maid, Whatadeal, and Victoria Belle.

In race six, Millennium Mile could be the one to beat. However, Why Not Dance, Storm Warning and Unreal are dangers.

The final event is very competitive, which means that there should be a good superfecta payout. The one to beat could be Nomoreginrog, while Fredrica, Zaltarr and Sweet Enough could make up the superfecta combination.
