KINGSTON, Jamaica - Samantha Fletcher continued to make her presence felt among the top riders after notching her fifth win of the season aboard seven-year-old chestnut mare Denbigh Life for trainer Patrick Fong on Sunday, March 12.
Fletcher’s success came in a three-year-old and upwards Claiming ($750,000-$600,000) event over 5 furlongs (1000m) on the round course.
At the off, Fletcher hustled up Denbigh Life to take up the early running ahead of Ha Gow Siu Mei (Linton Steadman), Givemethelight (Christopher Mamdeen), and Donalmighty (Roger Hewitt) going into the half-mile turn.
Denbigh Life upped the tempo approaching the distance before turning the pressure in deep stretch ahead of rivals. Although she was shortening in the final stages of the race, Denbigh Life had done more than enough from early on to hold on for the win.
Denbigh Life got home by a head from the fast-finishing Ha Gow Siu Mei. Donalmighty finished in third place, with the final time recorded at 1:02.2. The splits were 24.1 x 48.2.
