After her fifth win


Share post:

The Price Is Right will meet six other opponents in the feature Diamonds International Crown Of Light Sprint Stakes and Trophy Condition Race over 1 100 metres at the Garrison Savannah tomorrow.
The second consecutive Diamonds International Race Day is set to run off at 1:30 p.m. and will see the Bill and Haley Blevins-owned filly starring on the Barbados Turf Club’s 2013 first season opening day.
Trained by Jonathan Simpson, the Price Is Right goes after win No. 5 on the trot in her short career of six races. Her main competition should come from Khartoum and Flying South, both previous winners who ran poorly in their last efforts.
With the weights evenly distributed – 118 for fillies and 123 for the colts and geldings – High Tide appears to be the only maiden likely to improve.
In race three, the Diamonds International/Forevermark Handicap over 1 570 metres, the out of form Christopher Gibbs-owned Sea Gypsy will share the top impost of 130 pounds with recent winner, the Lady Williams’ mare Grace Chapel.
While one can make a case for Grace Chapel’s form to continue despite the heavy impost, the same can’t be done for Sea Gypsy.
There are several others entered in this event for three-year-old and older horses rated 55-75 who bring good form to the race – Vandross, Mrs B and Rickoshey.
Vandross, in his last effort over 1 800 metres found the more youthful Chatter Box more than he could handle and had to settle for second position.
Mrs B found Dunwiddat going far better in the Jingle Bells Handicap for horses rated 45-65 at this same distance and should stand another good chance.
Rickoshey fell victim to Roars two starts back in an intense battle which unfolded in the Oba Dove Handicap over 1 800 metres, that was followed by a subpar effort in a sprint. Expect a better showing at a more preferred distance.
Run For Your Money, pencilled in to carry 122 pounds, could very well try to steal it.  
There is a very competitive field in race six, the Diamonds International/Vene D’Amore Handicap for horses rated 42-65 over 1 100 metres. Golden Moment, Majestical, Byhookorbycreek and Spellbound are all down to carry 133, 132, 129 and 128 pounds respectively.
Majestical and Spellbound have both won one of their last three starts. But it is noteworthy they have since had an ordinary race or races.
Golden Moment now seems to be heading in the right direction as her form is on the improve.
Byhookorbycreek is very much in need of a turnaround in form. Secret Of Success, Late Bid and Boo have all entered winner’s enclosure and should not be ignored.
Between The Sheik will need the conditions to be in his favour while Reward Me took full advantage of the drop in ratings and welcomed the soft track conditions as he recorded his third career win taking the Diamonds International Safi Kalima Handicap Division ‘B’ for horses rated 32-55 over an identical trip.
