The “Warrior Chief” Dane Nelson at his best as Desrianna comes late to win fifth

Dane Nelson

KINGSTON, Jamaica – The fifth race at Caymanas Park turned out to be a pulsating contest between the two most celebrated jockeys current riding at Caymanas Park, Dane Nelson and Omar Walker.

With Nelson and Walker competing against each other in a maiden event for four-year-olds and upwards travelling six furlongs, it was Walker on the 2-5 favourite Fabulosity who set off in front with Nelson on Desrianna biding his time.

Entering the straight for the last two furlongs, Fubulosity was in front by two to three lengths ahead of rivals.

Then Nelson started his well-known hard pumping style to get Desrianna going and the filly under the strong urging got up in the nick of time to claim victory by a neck.

Fubulosity was second with Hard Working Man third.

This was the second winner on the day for Nelson.
