Rojorn Di Pilot's come from behind win on Wednesday (December 12, 2018) has his trainer Wayne DaCosta considering a possible start in the Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL)-sponsored Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes on Boxing Day, December 26.

The Jamaica Two-Year-Old Stakes is the third and final leg in the Supreme Ventures Limited-sponsored Triple Crown series of races. The race carries a purse of $4 million and is run over eight furlongs or 1,600m.

Rojorn Di Pilot, a bay colt by Liquidity - I'm Magic, after running behind the leaders in the early exchanges, got up in time to nip Enedina by a head in a maiden condition race over five furlongs (1,000m) straight.

The Roam-owned Rojorn Di Pilot, who was running for the second time and without the blinkers, posted a time of 59.1.

“We might take a chance in big two-year-old race but let's see how he ( Rojorn Di Pilot) comes out of this race and how he trains back.

“He is bred to sprint but the jockey (Omar Walker) told me that he looks as if he will get a distance of ground. Maybe not eight furlongs but let's see. We can draw a line after that race if we do decide to run him,” DaCosta suggested.

It was Enedina (Dane Nelson) who took the lead when the gates opened.

Enedina opened about six lengths on the field after the first two furlongs (400m) with Rojorn Di Pilot and Toona Ciliata (Dick Cardenas) giving chase.

Entering the final furlong (100m), Walker got his mount going and was able to nick Enedina. Toona Ciliata was third.

Rojorn Di Pilot came out of the maiden race on last good and he has improved in his workouts as well, so we expected a good run and we got it and I am grateful,” DaCosta ended.
