DISTANCE – Six and a half furlongs furlongs

KINGSTON, Jamaica – It is now quite clear that three-year-old chestnut gelding Mahogany is not effective going long but the sprinting and middle distances is a completely different scenario for this talented thoroughbred.

Today, Mahogany (Sensational Slam – Mete-Orite) summarily dismissed a quality field including his Classic nemesis Nipster with utmost disdain.

Reunited with jockey Dane Dawkins, Mahogany as expected went for the lead and was challenged early by Jamai Raja and Truly Amazing.

With just about 3 ½ furlongs left in the contest, Mahogany set sail for home after blazing early splits of 23.0 x 45.0 seconds.

In the straight, Mahogany was as comfortable as can be as Dawkins stood tall taking quick peeks behind to see if anyone was close but he was lonely in front.

Mahogany trained by Ian Parsard clocked a final time of 1:16.3 which is a mere three-fifths of s second off the track record of 1:15.3 set by the mighty Eros in 1993.

Second way behind by six lengths was Nipster with the weight carrying Sentient third.
