KINGSTON, Jamaica – The second of two, three-year-old non-winners of two contests is listed as the ninth race on the Sunday card of September 11, 2022, at Caymanas Park.
THE QUICK GALLOPER’S analysis of the 11 starters travelling 6 ½ furlongs is published below.
1 – GT BOY is a dark bay gelding (Jun 21) by Here Comes Ben out of Rejected Slew trained by Anthony Nunes with Reyan Lewis aboard. GT Boy returns to his rightful condition after a foray into non-winners of four. He will have to settle for a minor place.
2 – ONE LIKE IT is a chestnut colt (January 28) by Deputy Glitters out of Sandbath trained by Gresford Smith with Dane Dawkins aboard. Made his first visit to the winners’ enclosure 14 days ago, and now he has to wait his turn in this grouping. Note, One Like It races with the visor on.
3 – EL CID is a chestnut gelding (April 21) by Soul Warrior out of Wap trained by Anthony Nunes with Tevin Foster aboard. El Cid took 11 attempts to let go of the maiden tag, and now he will have to wait again to find victory in non-two.
4 – NEFERTARI is a bay filly (March 22) by Savoy Stomp out of Princess Geeta trained by Anthony Nunes with Anthony Thomas aboard. Highly thought of when making a winning debut on March 12. Since then, in her other three outings, Nefertai has not lived up to early expectations. Nefertari must have had her issues which led to a break of 99 days. In the mornings, this filly has moved well, and if not in need of a pipe opener, she will blow these away. It is a rarity to see champion jockey Anthony Thomas in the saddle for champion trainer Nunes. Note, that Nefertari races with the blinkers on.
5 – DESHA is a chestnut filly (February 21) by Nuclear Wayne out of Princess Sallema trained by Rowan Mathie with Dick Cardenas aboard. This filly’s only hope is for a minor share.
6 – AAVA JAELYN is a chestnut filly (March 20) by Tapilu out of Boogywoogyprincess trained by Donovan Thompson with Roger Hewitt aboard. Made a noticeable closing run 15 days ago when racing at six furlongs. The impression is there that Aava Jaelyn will be better off with the extension of the distance, giving her a chance of placing.
7 – SIR TAJAY is a bay colt (April 15) by Traditional out of Lastochka trained by Steven Todd with Shane Ellis aboard. Sir Tajay has been earning his spurs in non-two. That education process continues Sunday.
8 – THIRTYONEKISSES is a bay filly (April 11) by Savoy Stomp out of Shahar trained Richard Azan with Omar Walker aboard. Although finding her way at this level, Thirtyonekisses is not ready to handle these rivals yet.
9 – LION OF EKATI (USA) is a dark bay gelding (February 14) by Tale of Ekati out of Indian Conduct trained by Jason DaCosta with Nicholas Hibbert aboard. This foreigner has developed the bad habit of always being slowly out of his starting barrier. Lord of Ekati has no realistic chance of winning.
10 – AWESOME PRINCE is bay colt (May 8) by Vancouver out of Awesome Lucy trained by Steven Todd with Phillip Parchment aboard. Did well when finishing second behind Champion Bubbler on August 20. Awesome Prince has looked sharp at exercise and is coming to run.
11 – GET A PEPSI is a chestnut colt (March 13) by Blue Pepsi Lodge out of Getupstandup trained by Errol Burke with Raddesh Roman aboard. Finished in a dead heat for second on August 27, Get A Pepsi is oozing preparedness at present and will be among the principals at decision time.
