Prncsshootingstar favourite for Cash Pot Trophy
The impressive two-year-old filly PRNCSSHOOTINGSTAR, with Oniel Mullings aboard, is the ante-post favourite for the 17th running of the Supreme Ventures Limited Cash Pot Only One For Me Trophy for Two year-olds, which will be run 1200m on Saturday at Caymanas Park.
The race, which is for native bred horses, has attracted purse money of $3.25 million.
PRNCSSHOOTINGSTAR, who is trained by former champion trainer Phillip Feanny, is drawn in gate six in the seven horse field.
She was very impressive on debut when she won the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission/Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association Juvenile Dash over 600m on August 3.
FLY MESSENGER FLY, from the barn of leading trainer Jason daCosta, is the second favourite in the event and will be ridden by Abigail Able from post position one.
Lorna Gooden, general manager of Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited (SVREL), said they are looking forward to a very competitive race.
"We are very excited about the race and we are hoping that punters will come out and enjoy the excitement," Gooden said.
"These are some very good horses and we know that the trainers have worked hard and they will be putting their animals on the track to put on a treat for our punters," she said.
However, Gooden warned that the punters who fail to follow the COVID-19 protocols at the track will be evicted from the facility.
"Our protocols and safety are very important to us because we want racing to continue and so we ensure that we enforce the mandate of the Government," Gooden said.
Meanwhile, daCosta has two other runners in the event, TEKAPUNT to be ridden by Phillip Parchment from gate two and SILENT MISSION to be ridden by Anthony Thomas from gate five.
Veteran trainer Richard Azan also has multiple runners in the event in SLAMMER, who will be ridden by Dick Cardenas from post three, and PERFECT BREW with Oshane Nugent in the saddle is drawn in gate seven.
The other runner in the event is the Anthony Nunes-trained GOLDEN WATTLE who will run from gate four with Linton Steadman in the irons.
