KINGSTON, Jamaica - Four-year-old bay gelding Freedom Street, trained by Patrick Lynch, made light work of rivals in a Restricted Allowance III contest for native-bred four-year-olds and upwards (non-winners of four) and imported four-year-olds and upwards (non-winners of three) at 5½ furlongs (1,100m).

It was an even start for most of the runners in the six-horse field as Love Dub (Dane Dawkins), Freedom Street (Javaniel Patterson), Tekapunt (Roger Hewitt), and KP Choice (Andre Powell) battled for early supremacy.

Going into the half-mile (800m) turn, KP Choice surged to the front, just ahead of Freedom Street, with Love Dub and Tekapunt chasing. Hugging the inside rails and cutting the turn entering the drive, Freedom Street quickened in deep stretch, hitting the front at the furlong pole, and then powered home to win by 7 lengths.

Tekapunt outbattled rivals by a neck for second place, with Love Dub finishing in third place. The final time for the event was timed at 1:07.0 (23.1 x 46.3).
