Another Fulfilling Day at the Horse Races
Section of crowd at Tourism Horse Race meet
ZIZ Sports…January 08, 2010 – Even as the Dr. Denzil Douglas led administration was being sworn in at Warner Park in St.Kitts, patrons at the Pre-Valentine and Tourism Week Horse Race meet were watching in frustration as ‘De She Devil’, determined to live up to its name took no fewer than twenty minutes before allowing the final race of the day to get on its way.
After an initial false start, the horse seemed bent on reverting to a reverse gear despite all of the urgings and encouragement received from its handlers.
However, when the race finally got on its way, the fair sized crowd at the Indian castle race track was thrilled every second of the way, even as De She Devil stormed past the finish line in fourth spot, after a belated start. In this race Dominquero and Fire Storm had a photo finish for second spot as well, while the Presidential Obama took first spot.
The crowd was also entertained by the popular ODISI band and with smoke coming from the many vendors’ stalls; dust coming from the track and with food and drink flowing with unlimited fervor, the many locals and visitors alike would have had an incredible day – all told.
The overall results saw:
|Race 1 Five Furlongs (Winner’s purse $2,000.00):|
|1st Gottogetarythm – Brem Liburd the jockey||2nd High Spirit||Rosman scratched|
