KINGSTON, Jamaica – The winning gears of jockey Dane Nelson are now rolling with ultimate precision.
Nelson from the five races run thus far on the 11-race Caymanas Saturday (December 19) card has now won three of those races with the last coming in the fifth atop the Marvin Campbell conditioned Mirabilis.
It was another easy win for the “Warrior Chief” as Nelson is called by his legion of fans. He stood tall in the saddle as Mirabilis stayed behind the leaders before pouncing on the inside rails.
It was over and done with at that time.
Second was Smarty Tradition with Subbie third.
Nelson with his three winners today is now just two wins behind Anthony Thomas.
