Claiming apprentice Anthony “St Mary” Thomas was the toast of Caymanas Park yesterday, winning three races on the 10-race card, including Wong Don in the fifth running of the $930,000 O&S Tack Room Trophy feature.

Going six-and-a-half furlongs (1,300m), Thomas held Wong Don off the pace as Balazo (Wesley Henry) headed a group of horses tussling for the lead in the Restricted Stakes event.

Under a confident ride approaching the half-mile (800m), Wong Don hugged the inside rails, cut the turn, and with a clear run at the top of the straight, the chestnut colt blew past rivals, going away to win by five lengths for his fourth victory of the season.

Danbury (Bebeto Harvey), who pointed on Balazo in the lane, was second ahead of the fast-finishing Runallday (O'Brien White) with Secret Traveller (Ameth Robles) fourth. Balazo actually finished second, but was disqualified and placed out of the frame for causing interference to Dysfunctional shortly after the start of the race.

Owned by Superkids Racing Stables and trained by Patrick Fong, Wong Don was timed at 1:19.2.

Thomas's other winners were Chief Prospect for trainer Johnny Wilmot in the fifth race and My Angel Briannah in the eighth race for owner/trainer Ralph Roberts.
