KINGSTON, Jamaica – Omar Walker completed the trio of the top three jockeys (Dane Nelson and Anthony Thomas) in the present standings riding a winner today (Sunday, September 13) as he expertly guided the Ian Parsard trained Coco Chanel to victory in day’s eighth offering.

In the Restricted Overnight Allowance contest going 7 ½ furlongs, Walker drawn at one decided not to go with the leaders, instead he dropped back to sixth place in the field of nine starters.

Walker then steadily moved Coco Chanel into contention as Graydon (Dane Nelson), Contractor (Tevin Foster) and Sebastian (Robert Halledeen) were still plugging away on the front end.

When they straightened for the stretch drive, Walker had Coco Chanel poised for a final effort and the bay filly responded with gusto, moving away from rivals to win by 1 ½ lengths

Graydon was second and Sebastian third.

The winning time was 1:31.4.
