KINGSTON, Jamaica – Leading rider Anthony Thomas has responded immediately to Dane Nelson who won the race before with a cake walk aboard Formal Gladiator in the Caymanas Sunday third. Thomas is again four wins ahead of Nelson as when they started today’s race meet.
Formal Gladiator racing the first time since being claimed by trainer Ryan Darby made a hack of rivals especially after his task of winning was made easier by the late withdrawal of Mr Pantheon and SuperBolt.
Stanislaus was second with Dee Danger third.
