Expect a fantastic finish in feature

Published: 
Thursday, April 19, 2018

Former champion trainer Glenn Mendez sends out two runners in Saturday’s feature event over 1,100 metres at Santa Rosa Park in Arima.

Mendez will send to post former sprint champion Control Unit and the top-class performer Whisper Light in the $51,000 purse event.

Control Unit, which will be partnered by the in-form Wilbert Leon, has been allotted 53 kilos, a weight he has not carried in some three years. He must have an outstanding chance to return to winning ways if anything near his best.

Stablemate Whisper Light, which will be ridden by Ricky Jadoo, has never given weight to Control Unit and beaten him but is in great form and can break the jinx if the former champion is not at his best.

The Harriram Gobin-trained Stockyard will be seeking a hattrick of wins for champion owner Shivam Maharaj but may find this trip on the fast side this time around. He will take along 56 kilos and Wilmer Galviz will be his pilot.

His stablemate Conquest Bespoke is top-weighted with 57 kilos and must not be written off with the stable first call rider Prayven Badrie in the saddle.

The well-weighted Holy Man must be respected with his lightweight of 47.5 kilos. He will be ridden by apprentice Ri Hernandez and is expected to go very close.

When entries were taken yesterday at Santa Rosa Park a total of 84 horses took entry for the Arima Race Club (ARC) eight-race card.

Post time is 1.05 pm. Here are the declared runners, riders and weights for the ARC Day 13 programme.|
