Imported juveniles debut Saturday

By The Guru

IMPORTED juveniles will make their belated debuts in Saturday's 1,200-metre contest for Imported two-year-old and over maidens and West Indian-bred three-year-old winners. It is the fifth race on the Arima Race Club's nine-race card at Santa Rosa Park.

With five racedays left in the ARC's 2012 season, this is the first time the imported juveniles will be seen in action.

Four of them will make their local debuts in the ten-horse contest--Key Chain (trainer Terrence Thomas), Coconut Joy (Jules Miller), Slewjero (Derick Mosca) and Golden Enchantment (Stephen Jardim).

Also on Saturday's card, 2011 Gold Cup winner Boogie Blues and runner-up Montejo will use the 1,750-metre eighth race--for two-year-olds and over rated 85 and over--as their prep for the December 26 Gold Cup.

Eight horses have been entered for the two-turn event and among the runners is shock President's Cup winner Strikes And Spares, who will be partnered by Ronald "Tiger" Ali, who is coming off a six-day suspension for not giving his mount the best chance of placing. Mobthewarrior, who finished second in that race, will also be in the field.

And locally-bred two-year-old Big Man, who impressed when scoring easily in the 1,200-metre SFA Breeders Stakes earlier this month, will have a prep for the 1,350-metre St James Stakes on December 26.

Big Man comes up against leading trainer John O'Brien's Jamaica-bred Prince Zeshan in the 1,300-metre race for West Indian-bred two-year-old maidens and winners of one race.

This is the first time the West Indian-bred juveniles will be travelling over 1,300 metres.
