KINGSTON, Jamaica – The QUICK GALLOPER has sifted through the full results of the 2022 Jamaica St Leger and has put together the following reflections on what was a riveting Classic race offering.
1 – For the trainer and rider of the winner Blue Vinyl, Patrick Lynch, and Raddesh Roman respectively, it was their first success in the St Leger. Lynch has had many Classic successes before while Roman, whose stocks have risen appreciably since the start of the year, it was his second Classic win, the first being the same Blue Vinyl, a month ago in the 2000 Guineas.
2 – The colts and geldings dominated the final placings in the St Leger over the fillies. Five of the first six places, which are the paying positions were filled by the colts and geldings, Blue Vinyl (first), Brinks (third), D Head Cornerstone (fourth), Morimoto (fifth), and Rainsville (sixth). Atomica, by far, the pick of the three-year-old fillies finished second.
3 – The final time for 10 furlongs recorded by Blue Vinyl was a respectable 2:07.3. Last year St Leger winner Calculus clocked 2:08.4, while in 2020, former Horse of the Year Nipster in winning the St Leger was timed at 2:06.0.
4 – The dominant sire based on the results of the 2022 St Leger is the Paradise at Spring Village housed Bern Identity. Bern Identity is the sire of winner Blue Vinyl (Blufield), third-placed Brinks (Indian Bluff), and fourth-placed D Head Cornerstone (Soul of the Heart). Two other offspring of Bern Identity, Roraima finished tenth, and Berning Red, 13th and last.
5 -In the last three St Legers, trainer Gary Subratie has the enviable record of winning in 2020 with Nipster, in 2021 with Calculus, and second in 2022 with Atomica.
