Insane Bolt to strike in Easter Sprint Cup

Insane Bolt to strike in Easter Sprint Cup

Insane Bolt, the 2014 Classic aspirant who failed to stay the 2,000 Guineas course of 1,600 metres on Guineas Day, is here entered for today's Easter Sprint Cup among Overnight Allowance three-year-olds and upward at Caymanas Park. Sensible move. Insane Bolt is in fact bred to be a more effective campaigner over shorter sprint distances than the Guineas journey. He, however, seems to have a bit of class, hence his Classic introduction by his wily trainer Wayne DaCosta, who in the past has condi ... Read More

Perfect Neighbour takes Lady Geeta Trophy

Reigning Derby winner Perfect Neighbour, after displaying his versatility by winning the
1,200-metre Lady Geeta trophy, returns to the winner’s enclosure with Dick Cardenas atop
yesterday at Caymanas Park. Perfect Neighbour won at odds of 3-1 and is trained by Wayne

WITH a tremendous show of versatility, the reigning Derby winner Perfect Neighbour came with an electrifying burst of energy to win a 1,200-metre Lady Geeta Trophy at Caymanas Park yesterday. Although the time of 1:13:0 minutes was not impressive, the four-year-old dark bay colt by Natural Selection-Desperatehousewife by Ghost Ransom showed that he can sprint as well as race long distances, as he romped home by a head from Potcheen (Dane Nelson up) and Pete'swildone (O'Brien White astride) anot ...

Perfect Neighbour for Lady Geeta Trophy

NEIGHBOURLINESS has always been a commendable attribute in community living, and at the Caymanas Park Racing Complex in thoroughbred racing much the same operates. However, when there is something of value as the Lady Geeta Trophy among the residents of, say, New Kingston, the community becomes open court as you may find the oddball Pete'swildone imbued with Potcheen to Double The Honey with an Uppa Tune effort. Then there is Perfect Neighbour, the Johnny-come-lately of the Graded Stakes commu ... Read More

Omar Walker wants a fresh start overseas

BY RUDDY ALLEN Observer staff reporter | Tuesday, April 15, 2014    

Jockey Omar Walker looks to the heavens after winning his first Classic race,
the 2,000 Guineas on Talented Tony K.

FOUR-time champion jockey Omar Walker will depart the island on April 21 for Canada to begin a new chapter in his professional career. Walker said that the lack of support locally, especially from trainers, forced his decision to take up the reins overseas. "I just want to give Caymanas Park a break. I want to ride at a track where I am appreciated for my hard work. I just want a fresh start. I think that I deserve more than what I am getting here. "Over the years, I have been putting out the ...

Talented tony K brings redemption to kirlew family

BY OBSERVER RACING WRITER | Tuesday, April 15, 2014    

THE WINNERS! Winning owner, breeder and trainer of 1,000 Guineas winner
Queen Paula (in red shirt) gives hearty congratulations to his colleague after
Kirlew won the 2,000 Guineas with Talented Tony K.

When the offspring of Traditional - Ocean Liner was given the name Talented Tony K it was done to honour the memory of trainer Tony Kirlew who had gained the reputation of being a good young conditioner in the making. Tony was brutally slain by gunmen near his stables in a yet unsolved murder four years ago. As fate would have it, Talented Tony K has developed well and gave the Kirlew family especially trainer Lorne Kirlew, brother of Tony, a reason to smile and a reason to reflect. In a com ...
