KINGSTON, Jamaica – It was a wait and see game in the second race on Gold Cup Day at Caymanas Park until Sandori with Robert Halledeen burst through the pack on the inside rails to win easily.
Securing his 26th winner for the year, Halledeen watched as Unbreakable (Abigail Able), No Money Friend and Top Eagle battled for supremacy in the 9 furlongs and 25 yards Optional Claiming (350,000 - $300,000) event.
When Halledeen pushed through Sandori leaving the three-furlong marker it was over and done with as the Gary Crawford trainee went about his business with no threat/s in sight.
Second went to 28-1 chance Photogenic (Daniel Satchell) and third was the slot occupied by Shauna Cruise (Aaron Chatrie).
The winning time a slow 2:04.1.
