RACE ONE – Following some consistent performances, four in total, the Gresford Smith trained One Like It delivered the fifth time of asking with Dane Dawkins in the saddle.
RACE TWO – This race was decimated with two late non-starters reducing the field to five starters. Dare To Speak made use of the opportunity presented with an easy win. Dare To Speak provided his trainer Owen Dawes with his first win this season from only five horses saddled.
RACE THREE – Sudden Flight (Roger Hewitt) confirmed his likeness for the straight course with a  close win over dropping down to the claiming ranks, three-year-old Berlino’s Choice, a half-brother to the top-rated Mahogany. Little wonder that Berlino’s Choice was claimed for $550,000.
RACE FOUR – Quanna ridden by Samantha Fletcher won for the third occasion. For Fletcher, it was her 10th success this season.
RACE FIVE – Neglected in the betting, the Patrick Lynch trained AKA Storm rattled the rafters of most of the Reggae 6 bettors, winning at odds of 35-1. Good to see jockey Jerome ‘Cranberry’ Innis earning his fifth win this season after returning from injuries sustained in a fall.
RACE SIX – The Reggae 6 closed with victory for the Gary Griffiths-trained Colorado Ranger with Shane Ellis in the saddle. This race once again headlined the competence of Ellis. Coming from well behind the front runners, The Canter Man as Ellis is affectionately known timed his move with perfection to get home by a short head at odds of 6-1.
RACE SEVEN – Win number nine for Chrisanli proved to be a walk in the park, with trainer Norman Smith earning his third win of the season.
RACE EIGHT – Power Ranking after being pipped by stablemate Perfect Brew recorded his third career victory from nine starts with a come-from-behind victory. This three-year-old colt by Casual Trick out of Escandalosa has taken his career earnings to over $2 million. First, win on the day for trainer Richard Azan and second for leading rider Dane Dawkins.
RACE NINE – Surprisingly this Overnight Allowance call turned out to be a romp for the grey filly Artesia, who made it win number five from 23 starts. The recent decision by trainer Richard Azan to utilize more accomplished jockeys seems to be paying off. Anthony Thomas twice on Perfect Brew, Dane Dawkins on Power Ranking, and Omar Walker on Artesia.
RACE TEN – Sweet Majesty has taken took her own time (last win on Feb 19, 2022) to deliver her fourth win this time with the visor off. Sweet Majesty by virtue of this win graduates to the Overnight Allowance level. Congrats to trainer Edward Stanberry.
