Graeme Hill wins in style

nationnews.com | By Lindon Yarde | Sun, January 29, 2012

Spectacularly ridden by wonder boy Kyle Carter, Graeme Hill easily took the 13th edition of the Coolmore “Home Of Champions” Stakes & Trophy on a firm Garrison Savannah track yesterday.

It was a performance that would easily cement his place in the starting line-up for the prestigious Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup just over a month away.

Jockey Carter allowed the son of Graeme Hall out of Lucky Lady Lucy to canter along at the back of the nine-horse field in the (Gr.1.-Bar) race for three-year-old and older horses rated 118-140 (weight for age) and also open to horses rated 117 and below over 1 800 metres.

The Bill and Haley Blevin-owned colt Graeme Hill strode past some tired pace-setters gong towards the two-furlong marker as the original leaders Captain Sully, Lil Man Arran, Kingdora, Giovedi, John Brian and the favourite Daga had all come under pressure.

Entering the homestretch widest of all, Graeme Hill continued to stride out effortlessly for the victory.

This victory was even more significant for his connections and trainer Jonathon Simpson as they eventually finished first, second and fourth in the afternoon feature event.

Giovedi, partnered by Reshaun Latchman, ran on tenaciously to take second, while Indanger under Antonio Bishop ran another good race, closing from way back and getting up in time for third position. Lil Man Arran saw out his race well, finishing fourth with jockey Anderson Trotman astride.

This result could easily see these four joining top creoles Zoom, Apostle and Show Me The Money, who clearly cemented their spots last race day for the big race.

The disappointment of the race was the performance of Daga and John Brian whose entry in the Gold Cup now rests with the jury.

Equally as impressive yesterday was the telling blow delivered by Janaki, owned by the Estate Of Yusuf Mongroo. Under Kenny John, she turned back ten others when taking the supporting feature race, the Diamonds International Montblanc Challenge Sprint Trophy Handicap.

The Boston John-trained filly, who has not been nominated at the first two stages for the Sandy Lane Spa Sprint, defeated five other nominees in that race for four-year-old and older horses rated 75-100 and also open to horses rated 74 and below over 1 100 metres.

Those who felt her fury were Byhookorbycreek, Vitality, Purr Class, Istanbul and Greeley Gone West, with the latter two finishing third and fourth respectively.

Vitality was quickest away from the gates, joined by Desert Orchid and Dark Knight with Janaki stalking in fourth position.

As the tempo quickened going towards the two-furlong pole, Janaki took closer order, while Istanbul ridden by Rico Walcott, Greeley Gone West under Jalon Samuel, and Run Alke Run partnered by Paul Eddery (eventually second) could be seen making rapid headway.

Janaki, by virtue of having stolen first run, romped home for the comfortable victory. It was a performance that could very well make her connections rethink their decision not to nominate her for the Sandy Lane Spa.

Trinidadian Emile Ramsammy makes a return to the Garrison Savannah today. (FP)

By Lindon Yarde | Sat, December 10, 2011

Racing nostalgia returns to the historic Garrison Savannah today when Trinidadian-born, Canadian-based two-time Sovereign Award-winning jockey Emile Ramsammy takes to the saddle.

Ramsammy, who is no stranger to the Garrison, has piloted Frisky Wharf (1985), Stangrave Park (1987) and Call To Account (1988) to victory in what was then the Cockspur Gold Cup.

Ramsammy, who was recently honoured in Trinidad and Tobago, comes here in riveting form, having scored three victories last Saturday at Santa Rosa Park in the US$650 000 Caribbean Nations Racing Challenge.

He will partner Atomic Bomb, Finbar, and speedy Must Be The Money in Races 2, 7 and 8.

The afternoon highlight will see the juveniles in action when colts and geldings will compete in Race 5: the Diamonds International/Mont Blanc Meisterstuck Stakes & Trophy for West Indian-bred two-year-olds over 1 000 metres.

The second half of the feature – the Diamonds International/Mont Blanc Nightflight Stakes & Trophy for West Indian bred two-year-old fillies – will see three former winners fighting it out.

The order in which they won is Capere, Verkauf and Secret Of Success, and the winner is likely to come from among them in a race which is likely to go right down to the wire.

Blue Diamond Stable-owned Verkauf trotted home in the R.L. Seale & Company Limited Trophy Allotted Weights for two-year-old maidens over 1 100 metres. In that race she left Secret Of Success in her wake.

Verkauf was then fourth in the Kathleen Taylor Memorial Condition race over 1 100 metres. She is the one they will all have to beat.

Diana Jones-owned Secret Of Success, when scoring in the Kingdora Condition race for two-year-olds over 1 100 metres, simply ran past the field that included Release Me and Southern Lights.

While they didn’t offer much competition, it was one of the most impressive two-year-old victories. She stands another excellent chance for repeat success.

Raphael Greene-owned Capere won the Kabul Allotted Weights race over 1 100 metres. On that occasion one of her victims was Secret Of Success.

While Capere has not revisited the winner’s enclosure, she has been consistent and will want to prove she is amongst the best fillies. However, the outside draw does not help.

Trainer Andrew Nunes will send out Southern Lights who has three starts against her name.

After placing third in her first outing, Southern Lights made a feeble attempt at running her opposition into the ground. Her connections will be looking for a much improved performance despite the outside berth.

Release Me, Leave A Message, Rahy Promise and Mudlark will all look to improve on their dismal showing to date, while first-time starters Finbar, Lyrical Fox and Right Move will all seek to create a favourable impression.

John is back

John is back


www.nationnews.com | Sun, November 20, 2011

The name may be as simple as they come, even for a race horse.

But don’t left the name fool you.

John Brian is back with a bang, having not won since December 2009.

One of the island’s top three-year-olds, the Liz Deane-trained horse, showed all and sundry how to make a comeback, storming to victory in the Queen’s Plate Handicap, when the Barbados Turf Club’s second racing season continued yesterday at the Garrison Savannah.

And what an impressive field to do it against.

John Brian’s victory came against the likes of former Sandy Lane Gold Cup winners Daga and Mingun Temple.

In this Kenmore Bynoe picture, John Brian, with Ricky Walcott aboard, slamming the field in yesterday’s feature race.

Aston Martin one to watch

Aston Martin one to watch

www.nationnews.com | By Lindon Yarde | Fri, November 04, 2011 – 12:03 AM

After an eight-week break life in the fast lane returns to the Garrison Savannah, tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. with an action-packed eight-race card on the first day of the third season.

Ninety-four horses have been entered for the Barbados Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association’s race day, staged by the Barbados Turf Club.

The Elliott Williams Memorial Breeders’ Stakes and Trophy (GR.1RB,-BAR) for Barbadian-bred two-year-olds over 1 100 metres promises to be a scorcher.

With over $59 000 in prize money, all the leading juveniles have been entered in the event where colts take 126 and the fillies carry 121 pounds.

Heading this star-studded field is the awesome looking colt Aston Martin. Other winners include Chimichurri, 126 pounds and Verkauf and Capere, both with 121 pounds.

The Mark Armstrong-owned Aston Martin was an enterprising second in his first outing behind the filly Verkauf, but impressively turned the tables by taking the Kathleen Taylor Memorial Condition race over 1 100 metres with plenty left in the tank. On that effort it appears difficult to look elsewhere for a winner.

The connections of Chimichurri, owner Sir Charles Williams and trainer Andrew Nunes must feel they have a good chance of reversing the tables on last time conqueror Aston Martin. They now meet at level weights compared to the 12 pounds Chimichurri had spotted the colt.

Lord Michael Taylor-owned Verkauf enjoyed the pleasure of beating Aston Martin first time they met in the R.L. Seale & Company Limited Trophy Allotted Weights race over 1 100 metres.

The return encounter proved to be nothing more than an exercise gallop around the Savannah for Aston Martin. Verkauf has shown lots of promise and should still be around at the finish.

Capere, after winning the Kabul Allotted Weights race over 1 000 metres went under to Chimichurri in the Junior Kadooment Condition race also over 1 000 metres.

The top rated horses will clash in the Bushy Park Trophy Handicap for three-year-olds and older going 1 100 metres. Not only is this expected to be a quick affair but it will serve as a prep race for two horses nominated for the Caribbean Nations Racing Challenge race day in Trinidad and Tobago next month.

Those two are the Sir David Seale-owned John Brian and Blue Diamond Stables-owned Purr Class. John Brian, handicapped at 126 pounds, has struggled of late while Purr Class, who shoulders 130 pounds, is yet to run a bad race since her first run and could easily leave the track smoking.

All-clear for United Derby

www.nationnews.com | By Lindon Yarde | Fri, August 12, 2011

The United Insurance Co. Race Day – postponed last Saturday because of inclement weather and adverse track conditions – will come off tomorrow at the Garrison Savannah.

The ten-race card for the seventh day of the Barbados Turf Club’s second racing season is set to start at 12:45 p.m. with the 72nd running of the Barbados Derby – the feature event.

The United Insurance Barbados Derby – for West Indian bred three-year-olds going 2 000 metres – is being sponsored by United Insurance Company for the 27th consecutive year.

This 11-horse field is headed by the Sir Charles Williams-owned Kendal Moon and Slip Stream and the Lord Michael Taylor-owned Istanbul and Island Memories.

Another race that will create excitement is the United Star Treatment Trophy Handicap for three-year-old and older horses rated 58-80 and also open to horses rated 57 and below over 1 800 metres.

Sir David Seale’s filly Missed Storm is the standout of this group having won two of her last three starts.

She lost her maiden in the Midnight Lute Trophy Handicap for horses rated 38-60 and followed that up by taking the Kirov Lady Handicap for horses rated 48-70.

The A Team-owned Just Jiving, despite being defeated by Missed Storm, will also want to press claim to this race having won two of his last four outings.

He first took the Santa Faye Handicap for horses rated 25-50 and followed with a victory in the Pic-O-De-Crop Handicap for horses rated 38-60. Both Missed Storm’s and Just Jiving’s victories were over 1 800 metres.

The D. Yearwood, R. Simpson and L. Obi-owned Thunder Bird, while performing creditably has suffered defeats at the hands of Missed Storm and Just Jiving. He has finally been cut loose by the handicappers and appears as extremely high voltage in here.

Mystic Moon and Royal Spirits are the other winners in the field; however both are without a win this year which is a matter I’m sure their camps will want to rectify.

The others entered could use this race to create a much needed favourable impression.

Race 10 – the Ui Management Incorporated Trophy Handicap for West Indian bred three-year-olds over 1 570 metres – can be considered a consolation to the Derby field.

The Lord Michael Taylor-owned Vitality has opted out of the Derby to go here.

With him taking the top weight of 128 pounds it will however not be one-way traffic, as the likes of Fernandina, Wingman, Queen Of Hearts, Lune De Barachois and Volcanic can all take advantage of the handicappers’ generosity by turning in good performances.

The fifth staging of the T.A. “Tommy” Peirce Memorial Trophy Handicap for three-year-old and older horses rated 118-140, and also open to horses rated 117 and below over 1 570 metres will add variety.

3-year-olds take Garrison spotlight

By Lindon Yarde | Sat, April 02, 2011 | www.nationnews.com

Barbadian-bred three-year-olds take centre stage at the Garrison Savannah today when they clash in the feature – the Michael Parravicino Memorial Hopeful Breeders’ Stakes and Trophy over 1 570 metres.

The Realtors Limited-sponsored race day will see the colts and geldings carrying 126 pounds, while the fillies take 121 pounds.

Race seven on the card promises to be action-packed and should be a nail-biter.

The Lord Michael Taylor-owned and Anderson Ward trained trio of Island Memories, Vitality and Istanbul will be seeking the top three positions for the barn. This trio have already proven themselves at this distance.

Partnered by budding apprentice Kyle Carter, Istanbul, with a never-say-die attitude, seeks to make it four wins on the trot.

His peers suffered at the tape in the Diamonds International MontBlanc Bonus Challenge Stakes and Trophy and the Guardian General Insurance Breeders’ Stakes and Trophy, both races over 1 570 metres.

With career statistics of five wins from nine starts, he will prove a tough nut to crack.

Stablemate  Vitality  is also after a four timer. his main accomplishment to date is his maiden victory in the III Diamonds International Mont Blanc Doue Condition Race Division A over 1 570 metres. Blue Diamonds Stables go to rider Jalon Samuel on the impressive colt, which will make this race even more interesting.

Jason Leacock jumps aboard Island Memories, winner of William Bill Marshall Memorial two-year-old Creole Classic Stakes and Trophy  over 1 570 metres last time out. Island Memories has gotten the better of the exchanges with Vitality but has been on the receiving end from Istanbul.

He will have to improve to get the victory.  The eventual winner from these three could come down to who gets the better ride.

Jane Girls-owned Cinnamon Jane recorded an impressive victory in the Treehouse Club Trophy handicap division B over 1 100 metres. The daughter of Gold Cup winner Thady Quill is bred to go the distance and should not be left out.

Joycies Boys-owned filly Nile Queen made light work of her opponents in the Eustace “Tinnings” Jordan Memorial condition race over 1 100 metres. She will however be required to find more if she’s to get the victory for the Kendal stables.

Danehill Racing-owned Lune De Barachois is also a worthy contender for this race. Her best performance at this trip to date was a third place finish behind Island Memories and Vitality in the William “Bill” Marshall Memorial two-year-old Creole Classic Stakes and Trophy.

After several tries, Francis Cozier-owned Victoria Belle is still a maiden. This company may prove to be a bit challenging for her. Gay Smith-owned Angelic Peace is still learning the game and looks in deep water here.

Little is known of the Aysha Syndicate’s Captain Apache.

This bay colt by Captain Charlie failed to impress in his only outing on Boxing Day. Therefore it will take divine intervention as he tries to go from cottage to castle against this well tuned company.

My Picks:

1: Boo

2: Bond Street

3: Lady Patrick

4: Double Dagger

5: Slip Stream

6: Janaki

7: Vitality

8: Zegar

Smiths in the money

nationnews.com BY JUSTIN MARVILLE | SUN, MARCH 06, 2011 – 12:00 AM

IT’S NOT OVER until someone shows you the money. The Smith camp will do well to remember that. It wasn’t the ideal way to win the Caribbean’s most prestigious race but champion owner Gay Smith will take it anyhow, after Zoom was eventually awarded yesterday’s Sandy Lane Gold Cup in controversial fashion at the Garrison Savannah.
Initially happy to settle for second, Smith was even more elated to find out her horse was bumped up one spot following an objection that eventually disqualified Show Me The Money.

“It’s absolutely terrible to win in the way we did,” said Smith of Show Me The Money’s disqualification. “But the horse [Zoom] was spectacular and I just have to say thank you to my trainer and my perfect jockey. We’ve won with a home-bred – born and bred in Barbados – which is perfect.”

A long shot to win at 12-1 odds, Zoom seemingly did well to come second best as Show Me The Money, ridden by Jalon Samuel, crossed the finish line a good four-and-a-half lengths ahead. However, that decision was rescinded following a lengthy process, after Apostle’s connections lodged a protest claiming that Samuel impeded the horse in the home stretch.

So it was Zoom who eventually showed everyone the victory.
“We can’t do anything about that,” said victorious trainer Edward Walcott Jr with a sympathetic voice. “As a trainer it could have happened to me in the race but the stewards have to make their decisions and that’s what they decided.”

In spite of the controversy and Zoom’s high odds, Walcott believed his camp had the horse to give Barbados a locally bred champ for the first time since Federico won 13 years ago.

This after imported horses Bad Action and Safety Zone generated all the buzz heading into the race’s 30th edition. And if any attention surrounded a local contender, Apostle was the one getting it.

In the end, all were left behind. Not to Walcott’s surprise, though.
“It didn’t bother me what they said [because] we knew what we had,” Walcott said of Zoom’s overlooked status.

“He’s been on top of his game for the last three months [so] we’ve been really happy with him. He’s just won his last race before this and he’s had two seconds before, that so I was really happy with him coming here.

“It’s everybody [though], it’s a team effort and truthfully speaking, without Mr and Mrs Smith, I don’t know how we would do it, but we managed to do something we’ve been trying to do for a few years now – bring the local horses to the front.”

Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup Arrives

www.nationnews.com | Fri, February 11, 2011

The Eastern Caribbean’s most prestigious horse racing trophy is in Barbados.

The Sandy Lane Gold Cup, pinnacle of equine supremacy in the region, arrived earlier today, as usual, on a British Airways flight from London, England.

And, as has also become customary, officials from the Barbados Turf Club, the Ministry of Tourism, and Sandy Lane, were on hand for the Cup’s arrival.

General Manager of Sandy Lane, Robert Logan, acting minister of tourism, George Hutson, and the Turf Club’s director Pamela Marshall were all smiles when British Airways captain Justin Van Gemerin brought the glittering trophy off the 747 jumbo jet just after 3 p.m. today.

Here, from left Theresea Barnett of Sandy Lane, Robert Logan, acting Minister of Tourism George Hutson, Captain Justin Van Gemeren, Michelle Burrowes of Sandy Lane and, in back, First Officer Neil Simpkins of British Airways with the 2011 Sandy Lane Gold Cup.

Odds on Taylor, Ward one-two

www.nationnews.com By LINDON YARDE | Fri, January 21, 2011


Trainer Andy Ward (right) holding Istanbul with jockey Jalon Samuel aboard as owner Lord Michael Taylor looks on December 11. (HW)

The question all racing enthusiasts will be asking is if there is a creole capable of stopping the combination of owner Lord Michael Taylor, and trainer Anderson Ward, from sweeping the classics this year?

Will this dynamic duo start the season with another one-two finish?

Since we have no Paul The Octopus in Barbados, we will have to wait until this afternoon – when the first classic of the year runs off – to get the answer.

Istanbul, drawn in stall No. 7, will spearhead Taylor’s powerful three-prong attack in the Guardian General Insurance Breeders’ Stakes & Trophy (Gr.11. Bar) for Barbados-bred three-year-old creoles over 1 570 metres.

Istanbul will start as favourite, and justifiably so, having scored four victories from eight career starts.

The best of these was a hard-fought triumph in the Diamonds International Mont Blanc Bonus Challenge Stakes & Trophy (Gr.1) over 1 570 metres.

On form he looks hard to beat, though stablemate Island Memories just failed to catch him in the aforementioned race, where he encountered a little traffic problem by the three-furlong marker.

However, should Island Memories get a smooth trip this time around, he  is fancied to turn the table on Istanbul, though in horse racing there are few guarantees.

In Island Memories’ favour is that the track will have plenty of give because of the recent intermittent showers.

Staying with Blue Diamonds Stable, Reprise was an easy winner in (Div. B) of the 111 Diamonds International Mont Blanc Doue Conditions Race for West Indian-bred maidens over 1 570 metres.

She will improve after that run, but will find others in this event with much more experience, and simply better at this stage.

The Sir Charles Williams-owned Kendal Moon has no idea what defeat tastes like, and the barn expects her to keep it that way.

However, her stamina is in doubt.

The Joycies Boys-owned Nile Queen finally handed in her maiden tag recently, but she will be hard-pressed to repeat that form in this company.

Jack Is Back, owned by Faraway Stables, might have been a bit unfortunate not to have recorded a higher place last outing, as he suffered some interference when making a run at the two-furlong marker.

He has the perfect opportunity to show how good he really is today.
