BORONIA RELEASES MAIDEN TAG GIVING TRAINER FIRST WIN FOR THE SEASON

Four-year-old bay filly Boronia released her maiden tag when she won the first race – a maiden condition race by all of 13 lengths over seven-and-a-half furlongs (1,500m) at Caymanas Park on Saturday. It took Boronia 18 attempts before she could find the winners' enclosure but when she did it also brought satisfaction also for her trainer Owen Dawes. Dawes, a veteran in the business was able to register his first win for the season from 17 starts. Ridden by Shane Ellis, Boronia sat behind Born To Live (Gary Richards) for most of the way before taking over proceedings at top of the lane. From there on, it was a matter of how far Boronia would win and so she did in a comfortable romp. Thunder Pin (Prince Holder) was second and Moviestar (Renardo McNaughton) third with a final time of 1:38.2.

FOOT SOLDIER SCORES LONG OVERDUE WIN

Since breaking his maiden as a two-year-old on October 8, 2016, Foot Soldier, who was full of promise, went the other way in his racing career. It took the now four-year-old grey colt almost two years to revisit the winners' enclosure when he easily won on a $180,000 claiming tag event over seven furlongs (1,400m) on Saturday. Also enhancing Foot Soldier's win was a change in equipment as the He'stherealthing offspring had the tongue tie removed by owner/trainer Gary Griffiths. Ridden by the diminutive Prince Holder, Foot Soldier picked up the running from five-and-a-half furlongs (1,100m) out to win by over four lengths ahead of Sonador Express (Devon A Thomas) and Original Train (Aaron Chatrie). The winning time was 1:30.3. It was Griffiths' fifth win for the season and Holder's third.

CONSISTENCY DOES IT FOR BIBLICAL LEGEND

Biblical Legend, who has been knocking on the door for a quite while, finally found the winning formula winning by a half win in high claiming ($550,000-$500,000) over seven-and-a-half furlongs (1,500m) on Saturday. After giving up the lead in deep stretch, Biblical Legend did well against the inside rails to rally and beat Simply Outrageous (Gary Richards) close home. Subbie (Bebeto Harvey) came third and Musketoon (Linton Steadman) fourth with a final time of 1:34.1 for the distance. Biblical Legend, is owned by Calverton Brown, trained by Gary Subratie and was ridden by Aaron Chatrie.
