Stealing it from the front


PILLAR TO POST: Joshua Stephen pushes out El Bandido De Oro to a 2 1/4-length victory in last Saturday’s feature event (horses rated 90-60) over 1,300 metres at Santa Rosa Park, Arima. The American-bred son of Van Nistlerooy, who carried top impost of 57 kilos in the $50,000 contest, started a 9/5 joint-favourite with runner-up King Whistler in the six-runner affair. Trained by Harold Chadee for Dave Chadee, the six-year-old chestnut horse led from the off en route to his sixth career success, from 38 starts, while stopping the clock in 1:19.21. –Photo: DAVID WIGHT
