KINGSTON, Jamaica – Lalala Bamba made it two in a row after taking the Caymanas Thursday first – a five-year-old and upwards offering (non-winners of three) contest travelling 6 ½ furlongs.
Denbigh Life (Roger Hewitt) and Lalala Bamba (Youville Pinock) hooked up on the early lead with the 4-5 on favourite San Siro (Dane Nelson) hanging behind in fifth.
Lalala Bamba trained by Dennis Pryce took the runners into the lane for the final two furlongs with San Siro advancing well along the inside rails.
The two were heads apart for most of the stretch drive with both jockeys giving their all.
When the winning post arrived, it was Lalala Bamba by a neck. Inspired Miracle finished third.
