Winnipeg triple for Cumberbatch


Share post:

WINNIPEG – Barbadian Renaldo Cumberbatch rode a triple and Guyana’s Rohan Singh made his presence felt with a brace, as Caribbean jockeys continued to dominate the early exchanges in the new season at Assiniboia Downs.

Riding at the western Canada racetrack on Monday, Cumberbatch made the headlines on the seven-race card with victories in race two with 4-1 chance Artie in the Park, in race five aboard 13-1 bet Foxy Champ before also taking race seven with Real Heart, installed at odds of 9-1.

Singh, meanwhile, raised the curtain on the day by winning race one with 6-1 bet While I Was Away before following up in race four with 4-1 chance Tough Nut to Crack.

Cumberbatch tops the standings with five wins after just two weeks of the four-month campaign with reigning champion and fellow Barbadian Chris Husbands second on four. Singh is one of three jockeys with three wins but sits fifth. (CMC)
