KINGSTON, Jamaica – The ever growing and fruitful partnership of leading jockey Anthony Thomas and trainer Wayne DaCosta produced another winner when Secret Traveller fought hard to win the fourth of 10 races on the Caymanas card.

Racing in a claimer ($750,000 – $700, 000) going a mile, Secret Traveller mixed it up on the headlines with Wilson (Shane Ellis) for most of the trip.

In the straight, the two were involved in a dog fight with Thomas and Secret Traveller gaining the ascendency inside the final furlong.

But just as Secret Traveller took over Leekout (Kiaman McGregor) coming from well behind mounted a challenge and just failed by a neck to catch Thomas and Secret Traveller.

Wilson was third.
