KINGSTON, Jamaica – The Supreme Ventures Limited-sponsored Two-Year-Old Triple Crown series gets under way on Sunday (November 1) with the running of the Grade 111 Cash Pot “Only One for Me” Trophy going six furlongs (1,200m).

The race is a Graded Stakes event for native-bred two-year-olds and carries a total purse of $3.25 million. The race has attracted a small but talented field of six runners.

The analysis of each runner and their chances of taking home the first leg in the series is published below.

  1. SANTORINI: (2 ch c by Soul Warrior – Milestone) – Was an impressive winner on debut when victorious in the Rhoel Rhoden Memorial Trophy over 5 ½ furlongs on October 17. Santorini came from behind to win by a length and a quarter in a time of 1:07.0. Although the field was not the best of the two-year-old crop this season, Santorini packs the class and talent to figure here.

  1. HOIST THE MASK: (2 ch f by Blue Pepsi Lodge – Opulent) ­ – Defeated She’s A Wonder by a short head on debut over four furlongs straight in a time of 46.1 seconds. While Hoist The Mask is a capable runner, she has to improve a lot from her debut run if she is to contest for the top spot. Note: Tongue tie on/first-time Lasix

  1. SHE’S A WONDER: (2 b f by Bern Identity – Jamaican Dream) – The only maiden in the race. While She’s A Wonder has some ability, she is the only maiden in this major trophy race and it is going to be difficult for her to win. Note: Blinkers on.

  1. SUPER DUPER: (2 b f by Natural Selection – Patara) – A winner of one race from two starts. Super Duper seems to be a short runner and will do his running from early before giving away in deep stretch.

  1. MINIATURE MAN: (2 ch c by Northern Giant – Runaway Gal) – Won in a fast time on last over furlongs straight in 45.4 seconds. Miniature Man does possess good ability and should hang around for a slice of the pie.

  1. DEN STREET: (2 b c by Northern Giant – All For Pleasure) – The only juvenile in the race to win two races. Both of Den Street’s wins have come over five-and-a-half furlongs. First he clocked 1:07.0 on September 12 and then 1:06.3 on September 27. Based on both runs, Den Street is the horse to beat and a tough one to beat as well.
