The Anjune and Hamlet Park Race track at Branch Road Mahaicony came to life
on Sunday with the return of competitive horseracing after an absence of over four years.
It could not have been a better day to welcome the return of horseracing at the venue as Sent From Above blessed the track by taking the feature G class and lower event in emphatic style.
Sent From Above of the Lenny Singh Stable with champion Jockey Paul Delph on the hunch rode brilliantly in the 1000M event as it took over from the front runners down the homestretch and opened a handsome gap to win easily in the end as it took home the $250,000 money and Haroon Karim trophy. Taking second place was Red Cloud with Princess Paige third and front runner Shantal Baby fourth.
Mary Ann ridden by Paul Delph made sure that it was a double win for connections of the Lenny Singh stable as it whipped the field in the J and lower event to take home the $150,000 and trophy ahead of Red Jet and Young Turn About. However, the authorities may have to investigate the actions of the connections and jockey of Royal Cash who seemed to deliberately hold back the animal so that it would not place and thus drop a class in a future event which
might be more lucrative.
Red Jet of the Sewsankar Stable with Jockey Norville on board landed nicely on the homestretch before it took off and blazed away to victory to win the J class event and the $100,000 and trophy. The others that placed were Regina, Little and Trigger.
Secretariat owned trained and ridden by the 60 year old Desmond Ramkissoon rearranged things to show the youngsters how it is done by winning the L1 and lower event and the $60,000 winners money and trophy in convincing fashion from Galaway, Young Turn About and Natural Mystic.
Plane Land of the Dookie Stable with Godfrey landed a first place and $40,000 in the L2 and Lower race with Blue, Flash and Up Front rounding out the money.
The L3 race with a first prize of $30,000 saw Jockey Colin Ross riding Chronic to victory.
