The always anticipated and well watched two-year-old season got off to a good start with a close finish involving two of the lesser betting lights, Love Train trained by Ian Parsard, ridden by Georgina Sergeon and Gold Screw with Andre Martin atop.

This season opener for the juveniles would not have been possible with the participation, again, of trainer Lorenzo Robinson who saddled three of the six starters which started in the Starters' Trophy. As fate would have it, Robinson despite the three runners did not win the race, as that honour went to Parsard and Love Train - a two-year-old chestnut filly by Burning Marque - Trail Rider.

It was a bitter sweet moment for Sergeon who was winning her first race since resuming race riding earlier this year following a long period of recuperation after a fall on, believe it or not, a horse trained by Parsard.

So the two-year-old are on the track, let us see and monitor their development.
