Junior can take Gold sprint

Tuesday, January 1, 2013


The weather holds the key to the feature Sian Gold Sprint today at Santa Rosa Park, Arima, when First Citizens Bank will sponsor the first day of racing for the Arima Race Club’s (ARC) 2013 season. 
The Grade Two event is scheduled for the turf but with the inclement weather, the race could be shifted to the main track. 
The Maniram Maharaj-owned and trained course and distance record holder Fly Junior will be difficult to peg back in this event once the race stays on the turf. With his weight of 51.5 kilos it will take an outstanding performance by one of his rivals to topple him. On the form book none can. 
On the other hand, Signal Alert, the Stewards Cup runner-up will take the $90,000 first prize cheque once the race is taken off the turf. There is nothing that can live with this thoroughbred over 1,100 metres on the main track. Based on the Stewards Cup form, he has no rivals once the race is one the main track. 
Should the Grade Two race remain on the turf, there will be only one winner—Fly Junior. Expect the turf specialist Treasure Each Day which has been laid out for this by John O’Brien to follow him home. 
On the main track, Sacred Trust and King Whistler will follow Signal Alert home in the $150,000 purse event. 
In the co-feature First Citizens First Sprint over 1200 metres which is open to three-year-olds, Merlin Samlalsingh’s two entrants, Slewjero and Star Entertainer, will be well supported in the market. 
However, the John O’Brien-owned and trained Black Genius is the one to beat under Nobel Abrego. 
In the other feature, the Stud Farm Association Trial Stakes for three-year-old native bred maiden horses which passed through the yearling sales in 2011, there will be 16 going to post, with St Ann’s Stakes second and third placed finishers Heidi Tzippi and Salome throwing down the gauntlet to O’Brien’s duo of Hyatt Princess and Gold Rush. 
Heidi Tzippi is the one they will have to beat. 
Post time is 11 am.
