Digital One impresses in Mr Sensational Trophy
Digital One, ridden by leading jockey Reyan Lewis, delivered an impressive performance to secure victory in the Mr Sensational Trophy for two-year-olds over seven furlongs at Caymanas Park on Saturday.
Digital One, bred in the United States and conditioned by champion trainer Jason daCosta, led from gate to wire to win by eight lengths in a time of 1:26.3. Stablemate Fastnfuriouslinks, ridden by Javaniel Patterson, finished second, while third place went to Run Julie Run, ridden by Omar Walker, from the stable of Ian Parsard.
The Don Wehby-owned Digital One recorded splits of 23.2, 46.2, and 1:12.3 on her way to winning the event.
“I thought her performance was excellent because we obviously have a good horse,” said Wehby.
“She is still a baby, but to be honest, I got a little nervous at the furlong pole. However, the trainer said to me that she was idling because she really wanted a big race. As soon as the other horse came close to her, she pulled off and won by a wide margin,” he explained.
“What I am also very happy about is the time that she won the race in. I think 1:26.3 for a two-year-old filly on what is a relatively slow racetrack is a good performance, and so I am happy,” Wehby added.
Luksol gave daCosta and Lewis their second win on the 10-race card when he won the Gerry Skelton Memorial Cup over five-and-a-half furlongs quite easily. The four-year-old Luksol won by eight-and-a-half lengths at odds of 4-1. Race Car with jockey Raddesh Roman was second, while third went to El Profesor with Jordan Barrett in the saddle.
Javaniel Patterson, who won two races on the day, achieved his 200th career win at Caymanas Park when he claimed the third race aboard the Anthony Dixon-trained Print Quality.
His second winner came in the eighth race aboard Kai On The Go for trainer Gary Subratie. Jockey Richard Parchment also won two races on Saturday. They came aboard Sensational Satin in the first event and Burlap in the ninth race.
