Safra Tilah makes seasonal bow

SAFRA TILAH, one of last year's leading juvenile contenders for the divisional title of champion two-year-old filly at the February 1 Jetsam Awards ceremony, will make her seasonal bow in Saturday's sixth race against the older horses at Santa Rosa Park.

She shares the top impost of 58 kilos with Lookin At Lovely, Tennesse Hustler, Grand Slam and Pacman in the 1,100-metre race for horses rated 55-35 on the turf. The Glenn Mendez-trained filly, who finished fifth in the St Ann's Stakes to She's A Cutie on Boxing Day, will be partnered by three-kilo claiming apprentice Romario Hernandez in the one turn event, which could be moved off the turf because of heavy rainfall for most of the week.

Also having his first run of the season having finished fifth in the Republic Bank Gold to Mobthewarrior, is champion owner Shivam Maharaj's Gabby's Gold, who will be partnered by Emile Ramsammy in the 1,750-metre race for horses rated 100-80 . It is the seventh race on the card.

Youaresobad, also owned by Maharaj, which finished seventh in the Gold Cup, is also among the seven entrants, along with Golden Dixieland, who was scratched from the race because of a 'shoe boil' .

And Big Man, who finished third to Prince Zeshan in the St James Stakes on Boxing Day will also make his seasonal bow in the fith race for West Indian-bred three-year-old maidens and winners of one race.
