KINGSTON, Jamaica – Do Your Job racing for the second time created the mother of all upsets winning the Caymanas Tuesday seventh at searing odds of 99-1.
Trained by Johnny Wilmot and ridden by Javaniel Patterson, Do Your Job was successful in a three-year-old maiden contest travelling 5 ½ furlongs.
When the race started, it was a mad scramble for the leadership advantage involving Diamond In The Sky (Youville Pinnock), Rocket Lily (Omar Walker), Thegoodlife (Anthony Thomas) and first timer Carol Strike (Andre Powell).
Carol Strike won that battle by sprinting off to lead by three lengths but by the time the horses turned for home Diamond In The Sky, Rocket Lily, Thegoodlife (Anthony Thomas) and Carol Strike were spread across the track.
Diamond In The Sky digging deep stepped out from the rest but then started to drift out and was challenged by Thegoodlife, and as soon as the latter gained the lead out of the clouds emerged Do Your Job and Patterson.
The Goodlife was second and Diamond In Sky third.
Do Your Job paid $6,798 to win with the exacta paying $32,212.
