KP Choice - Aaron Chatrie
KINGSTON, Jamaica – Rain, rain, and more rain was the order of the race day (Sunday, September 25, 2022) at Caymanas Park.
THE QUICK GALLOPER provides the race-by-race analysis of the 10 offerings on the day for readers.
RACE ONE – Finally, the bred in utero chestnut colt Tapit Good, notably racing with the visor on, found a way to be in front when the winning post arrived. Win number 75 for leading rider Dane Dawkins while trainer Gary Subratie continued to have a good season.
RACE TWO – Apprentice Roger Hewitt is currently the go-to rider among many of the trainers. Hewitt was at his patient best on the Christopher Pierre-trained Diligent as Breaking Storm set off like a scared hare. Hewitt’s patience paid off for win 21 in 2022, while it was the first visit to the winners’ enclosure for Pierre.
RACE THREE – An easy win for Carol Strike, jockey Anthony Thomas, and trainer Lincoln Lungs.
RACE FOUR – This was one of those races it is best to forget. For history, the winner was Sheer Beauty ridden by Dick Cardenas for trainer Donovan Russell.
RACE FIVE – Custer provided win number two on the day for jockey Roger Hewitt, and a rare win for veteran trainer Welsh Soutar.
RACE SIX – Racing fans take notice of young apprentice Matthew Bennett. The young man is slowly gaining some momentum in the pigskin as evidenced by his competent winning ride on D’s Choice for trainer Alford Brown.
RACE SEVEN – Congratulations are full and graciously offered to trainer Keffin Murray for presenting KP Choice in unbeatable condition. Guided by the ever-reliable Aaron Chatrie, KP Choice racing for the 10th occasion, achieved his second win and looks set to comfortably deal with three-year-old non-winners of two. Well done, Mr Murray.
RACE EIGHT – The longest shot (19-1) winner on the day was Silent Mission this time partnered by Javaniel Patterson. Patterson was able, like on the last occasion, to get the Jason DaCosta trainee a clear run on the inside rails, after Silent Mission raced at the back of her 8 rivals. Silent Mission has now a non-winner of four races with earnings of over $3 million.
RACE NINE – A convincing win by three-year-old Runaway Algo at the Overnight Allowance level. The win by Runaway Algo will be the subject of a separate article.
RACE TEN – On his fourth racing call, the Ray Phillips trained, Matthew Bennett, guided March And Shoot to his maiden victory.
