KINGSTON, Jamaica – The position was the fifth race as 69-1 chance Winx Choice racing on the wide outside of rivals found her legs to create a huge upset which set the cats among punters as the Caymanas Park Friday offering continued apace.
Staying off the pace set in runaway fashion by Raw Liquid (Roger Hewitt), veteran reinsman Devon A Thomas watched proceedings in fifth place as the horses took their positions in the Restrictred Allowance 4 event for four-year-olds and upwards non-winners of three.
Thomas who has not seen the winners’ enclosure in a long while, had to pull Winx Choice from mid-pack to the wide outside and that was when the filly really started to move.
In the final yards, Winx Choice was in full flight getting by Bloodsweatandtears (Dane Nelson) to earn her long odds victory by three-parts of a length. Third was the running on Ali (Youville Pinnock).
