What They Say - ANDREW MCDONALD

Friday, August 29, 2014    

When did your start your career as a trainer? I was involved in racing from a young age as I started coming to the track since I was going to school. Being at the track on a regular basis I developed a liking for horses and so the decision to choose a career in the racing industry was a simple one for me. I used to be around Wayne and Margret Parchment until I got my training license in 2001. Which horse was your first winner? Annie's One Buck gave me my first winner. Neville Stephenson rode ...

Cardenas setting the pace

BY OBSERVER RACING WRITER | Tuesday, August 26, 2014    

(L-R) Dick Cardenas — 66 winners. Dane
Nelson —
61 winners

DICK Cardenas is hot in the saddle these days. The Panamanian who has already worn the title of champion jockey has been peeling off the winners of late. He has tallied seven winners in the last two racedays, thereby propelling him to a noticeable lead in the jockeys' championship. The man race fans has dubbed the "Wily Coyote" is now five wins (66 to 61) in front of present champion Dane Nelson. His winners on Saturday last were Jovoun The Master, Natashadontplay and Lovetta Jones. Nelson's on ... Read More

THE names of jockey Du'Von Litchmore and trainer Uton Stewart are not readily recognisable to racegoers. The two, however, had their day in the sun on Saturday August 23 as winners; Stewart for the first time and Litchmore, based on available records, for the second time in his career. Litchmore who rarely rides these days having done only two times this season, found his way to the winners' enclosure on board the Neville Cooper trained Girl On Fire at odds of 48-1 in the second race on Saturd ...

Champion dacosta in good nick

BY RUDDY ALLEN OBSERVER STAFF REPORTER | Tuesday, August 26, 2014    

Your Eminence winning with a jubilant Jevvanne Erwin

Wayne DaCosta gave a gentle reminder why he is the champion trainer with a spanking double Lovetta Jones (Dick Cardenas) and Rio Cobre (Shamaree Muir) last Saturday. Lovetta Jones went in front and never looked back as the six-year-old bay mare was an easy winner going over 1,000 metres straight among $250,000-$210,000 claimers, while Rio Cobre had to withstand the late challenges of Campesino (Percy Williams) and Fierceandfabulous (Shane Ellis) to win by half-a-length going over 1,000 metres r ...
