THREE-YEAR-OLD debutante filly Trinitutor accelerated inside the final 50 metres to log an easy win in the $715,000 Eight Thirty Sprint feature at Caymanas Park yesterday.
Owned by Ranford M Randall, the facile victory served to confirm trainer Gary Subratie's early assessment of the half-sister to Uncle Ken is definitely Classic material."
She competed 1,000 metres straight in a time of 1:00.3 while easing down at the line in the maiden special weight contest for native-bred three-year-old fillies.
Running for the first time but installed as a 2-1 bet in the maiden special weight contest, Trinitutor was smartly away from the gates and then sat comfortably in mid-track with the leaders before making her move.
And when she did, her rivals had no immediate answer as while the 5-1 chance, Eighteen Karat, with Aaron Chatrie was making heavy weather of the run on the rails, Trinitutor began to leap forward to be ahead of proceedings inside the final part of the race and came home with two lengths to spare on the 24-1 chance Pleasure Train. Pleasure Train was ridden by Clive Lynch in place of designated rider, female 2.0kg claiming apprentice Georgina Sergeon, who stood down after suffering a spill in the previous race.
Although suffering no visible effects of the mishap, Sergeon was, however, taken to the hospital for observation.
Fly For Pleasure, the even-money favourite ridden by leading jockey Dane Nelson, finished another half-a-length back, with Eighteen Karat completing the frame in the field of 14.
Trinitutor, a bay filly by Ghost Ransom out of Kathythetraina (Conquistador Cielo) and bred by Trevor James, pocketed the winning purse of $390,400.
Sergeon was the leading rider on the 10-race card with two wins. She booted home the 3-1 chance Explosive Dancer in the second race for trainer/part-owner Deon Facey and the 8-5 chance She's Traditional in the sixth for trainer Fitzroy Glispie, who is also and part-owner/breeder in collaboration with Stenton Neil.
