Share post:

JAKESAM took yesterday’s feature Garrison Savannah Handicap over 1 570 metres for there-year-olds and older horses rated 100-82 and open to horse rated 81 and below race at the Garrison Savannah much to the delight of his trainer Naz Issa.

The Mr Brain-owned seven-year-old gelding won the day’s sixth race on the Paying Tribute To The Heritage Of The Garrison Historic Area Raceday from Janak’s Gold under jockey Reshawn Latchman.

Race favourite Nekitta, ridden by jockey Antonio Whitehall, took third and fourth spot position went to Vanity Affair with apprentice Rasheed Hughes aboard.

Noting he was happy to have won the feature, Issa told SUNSPORT he was disappointed with the way the day ended for him as Kai failed to place.
