KINGSTON, Jamaica – If both leaders in the current jockeys’ standings Anthony Thomas and Dane Nelson with 84 wins each fail to saddle up on the last race day of the year tomorrow (Sunday, December 27), it will not be the first occasion in the 61-year existence of Caymanas Park that the jockeys’ race would end up in a dead-heat or tie.
Fifty years ago in 1970, Richard DePass rode Wally Gold to victory for trainer Owen Silvera to tie with leader Panamanian Jose Bravo on 53 wins each.
Thomas is down on today’s (Boxing Day) card and also tomorrow. While Nelson is down for today, but it is yet unknown whether he will ride tomorrow.
