The long-awaited and anticipated clash between former two-time Horse of the Year, Seeking My Dream and the current holder of the title, She's A Maneater could happen this weekend on Lotto Race Day at Caymanas Park, according their trainer Wayne DaCosta.

Both horses are among 14 runners provisionally entered to contest the $1.75-million Lotto Sprint Trophy over five and a half furlongs (1,100m).

Although it would be a racegoers' paradise to see both Seeking My Dream and She's A Maneater squaring off, DaCosta said his mind is not yet made up if both his horses will line up in the Lotto Sprint.

“My main horses in the Lotto Sprint are She's A Maneater, Seeking My Dream, Lottery Ticket and probably Mr Universe, but a decision on Mr Universe will be made after we see how he comes out of GA “Sarge” Bucknor Memorial Cup which was run today (Saturday, May 19, 2018).

“Still not sure exactly which horses I will start, but the race looks pretty tough with about 14 horses nominated. She's A Maneater and Seeking My Dream are geared up to run but still not quite sure, as I might run one or the two of them,” DaCosta said.

As to the preparation of both horses, DaCosta informed that Seeking My Dream and She's A Maneater have been going through their paces in step for the race.

“My horses have been training well. She's A Maneater worked two five -furlongs, while Seeking My Dream just had a competitive run, then rested and galloped three furlongs in 35.0, and so everything is going well for both of them but let's see what happens,” he said.

If the two were to run, what would be your expectation?

“Well I hop I could run first and second but you can never tell, as it is a sprint race and both of them aren't ideal sprinters. Seeking My Dream is more of a middle-distance horse and She's A Maneater is also a middle-distance runner, but she wants to go a little longer.

“Not quite sure. You have the champion sprinter in there, Chace The Great; Money Magnet who is a good sprinter; Siempre Bueno who just won the Lady Geeta. You have a talented field so not quite sure how we would end up, but let's hope I will end up on top,” DaCosta said.
