KINGSTON, Jamaica - Love Dub, who was a disqualified winner last time, made no mistake this time around in a native-bred four-year-old and upwards (non-winners of three) and imported four-year-olds and upwards (non-winners of two) travelling 5½ furlongs (1,100m).
Trained by Gary Subratie, Love Dub did everything wrong on last when drifting out to make contact with Josh in deep stretch in a 5-furlong (1000m) call. The bay filly had her number taken from first place as a 17-1 upset winner.
Now going a half-furlong (100m) longer and champion jockey Dane Dawkins replacing Paul Francis, Love Dub got a clean break and settled just behind Gracefully Made (Chris Mamdeen) and Xceptional Babz (Anthony Thomas) going into the half-mile (800m) turn. Love Dub continued to bide her time on the inside rails, and with a clear run in deep stretch she powered away from rivals to win convincingly by a length.
Whisky (Tevin Foster) came from far behind runners to get second place ahead of A Gift From Ben (Prince Holder) who finished in third place. After splits of 23.0 x 47.1, the final time was recorded at 1:08.3.
