Prince Marshall followed up his April 3 victory over 1,820 metres with another striking run over 1,800 metres to win the Valbert Marlowe Memorial Cup feature race on the IDT Department Race Day programme at Caymanas Park on Saturday, June 18, 2022.The race day focused mainly on the Information and Communication Technology Team for service and dedication provided to the horse racing industry.

Bred, owned, and trained by former heavyweight rider Fitzroy Glispie, Money Marshall the four-year-old chestnut gelded, son of War Marshall - Princess Shine by Legal Process, was sent off as a joint 8/5 favourite betting option along with third past the post T Brady, who was ridden by Paul Francis. T Brady was outdone for the second past the post spot by Classical Orb, a staying on the gelding ridden by Reyan Lewis and conditioned by trainer Colin Blair in the field of nine runners.

“The run was another pleasing work from Prince Marshall. His many problems, though, are deterrents, and [we] as always will be keeping a close watch on his development and see how well he will retain his good form and how he progresses to be effective in competition in later engagements. He is of good ability, but keeping him sound for racing is the main concern,” trainer Glispie pointed out.

Prince Marshall won in a final time of 1:52.4 with splits of 24.1 x 48.0 x 1:12.1 x 1:138.0. He was 7 1/2 lengths ahead of the second placed horse.
