Prince Zeshan, She's A Cutie for action Saturday

CHAMPION two-year-old colt, Prince Zeshan and champion filly She's A Cutie, both unbeaten, will make their seasonal debuts in Saturday's 1,350-metre Flamingo Stakes and Ibis Stakes at Santa Rosa Park.

Prince Zeshan comes up against unbeaten stablemate Pot Of Gold in the $150,000 Flamingo Stakes which has attracted six runners, while She's A Cutie, who will be partnered by Wilmer Galviz comes up against stablemate Tennesse Hustler, with leading rider Emile Ramsammy aboard in the fillies' division, the $150,000 Ibis Stakes which includes 13 fillies, with 11 of them being maidens.

Both events will be preps for the three-year-olds heading into the 1,800-metre Easter Guineas, the first leg of the Triple Crown series on April 1.

In other racing news, trainer Glenn Mendez's Just Call Me Roger, who will represent this country in Saturday's 1,800-metre Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup at the Garrison Savannah, Bridgetown, Barbados, arrived safely yesterday, along with trainer John O'Brien's Esquire, who will take part in the 2,000-metre Tanglewood Stakes.

O'Brien's other Tanglewood Stakes nominee, Odin, was left back in Trinidad because the freight carrier, Caribbean Airlines only brought two boxes to ship the three horses.

Esquire is reserve number one in the contest, as his Trinidad rating (89) was dropped by 19 points by the Barbadian handicappers. Odin, whose T&T rating is 81, was dropped by 21 points, making him reserve two in the race. The Tanglewood is not a ratings race, as all the horses carry the same weight. However, the horses with the lowest ratings become the reserves.
