Before the start of every race at Caymanas Park, the strains of the popular Freddie McGregor hit song, I was born a winner is played. On Saturday last, McGregor proved that he was indeed a winner as his horse, Uncle Freddie, got home under the guidance of jockey Dane Nelson. In photo, McGregor greets his many fans in the winners' enclosure.
