Jumbo Jet Stable dominates proceedings
By Samuel Whyte
Captain Crook of the Jumbo Jet stable led stable mate Rosetta in a one two finish to take top honours in
the Feature F and Lower 1400M event when the Bush Lot United Turf Club held their highly successful one day horserace meet on Sunday last at the Club’s venue Sea View Park, Bush Lot West Coast Berbice.
With the experienced Randolph Richmond on its back, Captain Crook trained by Carlton ‘Black Mouth’ Pluck ran a straight race as it took flight early and was never caught.
With Richmond giving it full reign down the homestretch the racehorse picked up speed, cantering home over the line ahead of Rosetta with Colin Ross on the perch to take the $500,000 and Bharrat Sukdeo Trophy. Top contenders Right to Rule and Mission King rounded out the money.
The Jumbo Jet Stable again was in winner’s row in the G3 and lower race with Settling Jet ridden by Colin Ross settling in from early before gathering speed down the homestretch to take the 1000M race from Top of the Lime, Weekend Surprise and Silent Night. For the win the animal raced away with the $400,000 and the Que Trex International Shipping trophy.
The two year old Guyana and West Indies 1000M event was again taken by the Jumbo Jet stable with Its My Choice ridden by Colin Ross beating Gold De Kova, She Running Hard and Storm Bird to win the $400,000 first prize and Lakeram Buddy Sookdeo trophy.
Mary Ann of the Lenny Singh stable with Paul Delph on the perch won the I and lower 1200M event from Red Jet, Famous Pride and Romeo. The win was worth $250,000 and the Sandro’s Indian Fashion Trophy.
The Gump of the Night Eyes stable, trained by A. Solomon and ridden by Junior Sookhan, won the J and lower 1400M event and the $200,000 money ahead of Red Jet and Another Storm.
Top jockey Colin Ross rode to his third victory when he piloted Grey Boy to winner’s row in the K and lover 1200M event ahead John Causeway, Royal Passion and Another Storm. The
Win was worth $150,000 and the Dr Love Trophy.
The Jumbo Jet stable ran away with the champion stable award. Jockey Colin Ross was again adjudged the top jockey. Trainer Carlton ‘Black Mouth’ Pluck was the top trainer on show. They received trophies compliments of the Bush Lot United Turf Club and Coordinator Lakeram “Buddy” Sukhdeo.
