KINGSTON, Jamaica – The rain started to pour down heavily at Caymanas Park about an hour ago and has continued to do so albeit at a steady drizzle.
This wet race track will greet the now 10 starters in the Derby which is just one race away to be contested.
Originally, 11 runners were nominated to run in the historic 100th Jamaica Derby but it was announced this morning that Shepanza trained by Richard Azan and to be ridden by Dick Cardenas was declared a late non-starter.
This race track might suit St Leger winner Nipster who won that 10-furlong event on a muddy track coming from behind on the inside rails.
The time is at hand and all questions will be answered shortly.
