Derby win – with Cheese on top


Share post:

IT WAS a triple treat and double delight at the same time for Victor Cheeseman at the Garrison Savannah yesterday.

Northern Star, which he co-owns and trains, romped to a spectacular victory in the Massy United Insurance Barbados Derby before a sizeable crowd in an exciting, 10-furlong gallop for West Indian-bred three-year-olds.

The 54-year-old Cheeseman celebrated his third consecutive year as the winning trainer of the Barbados Derby and doubled up by being the owner of Northern Star along with Mervyn Rollins.

But it wasn’t a foregone conclusion. Kangaroo Jack, piloted by Affrie Ward, dominated three quarters of the race before Northern Star’s Antonio Bishop turned in a gem of a ride in the final furlong to challenge the Andrew Nunes trained horse.
