KINGSTON, Jamaica – Co-champion jockey Anthony Thomas rode back to winners when he piloted the Jason DaCosta trained Ianzha Links to a facile victory in the Caymanas Saturday fifth offering just moments ago.
Ianzha Links won a maiden condition event for fillies only at a distance of seven furlongs.
From the get go, Thomas sent Ianzha Links to the lead where a brief tussle began with Khai Alexis (Shane Ellis).
Quickly, Ianzha Links shrugged off Khai Alexis and then proceeded to move clear of her rivals in the last two furlongs of the straight to win comfortably by four lengths.
Ianzha Links was the third winner to be saddled by DaCosta thus far in his local racing career which started less than a month ago, while Thomas made two on the day thus far.
