A small crowd was on hand to witness the W.C. “Bill” Marshall DFC SCM Memorial Raceday yesterday, the third day of the Barbados Turf Club’s third racing season at the Garrison Savannah.
Even-money favourite Howulikedisname rewarded backers by easily taking the feature William “Bill” Marshall DFC SCM Memorial Two-Year-Old Creole Classic Stakes & Trophy over 1 570 metres.
The John D. Chandler-owned and trained colt, sired by Pen In Hand out of Noble Approval, only required jockey Anderson Trotman to steer him across the line in the final half of a furlong.
Favourite Cat led the field from the gates followed by Lady Dancer, Howulikedisname, Double Jeopardy, Danny Boy and Super Heights while the others raced in single file way off the pace.
After the six furlongs were completed in a respectable 1:13.1, the early leaders Favourite Cat and Lady Dancer started to tire. In the blink of an eye, Howulikedisname ran alongside the tiring leaders, with Double Jeopardy hard in pursuit, with Summer Again and Mousetrap also gaining ground.
