The racetrack was buzzing over last weekend (Saturday and Sunday) as many of the 2019 Derby aspirants put in their final gallops before the running of the big race on Saturday next (June 29) at Caymanas Park.

The main talking point came on Sunday morning when the Anthony Nunes-trained entrants, with the exception of Earn Your Stripes, completed their preparation.

Tricky One and Supreme Soul galloped together over seven furlongs, with Tricky One getting the nod in a time of 1:30.3 while Supreme Soul was clocked at 1:30.4.

Clockers on duty who saw the work done by Tricky One and Supreme Soul reported that the former was easy while Supreme Soul was ridden.

The third Nunes horse to gallop on the day was Princess Ava, who clocked 1:30.4 for seven furlongs.

Other possible Derby runners that were on the track on Sunday were Black River, Duke, Sentient and Ali.

Sentient looked good according to the clockers when he galloped seven furlongs in 1:30.4.

Black River galloped five furlongs in 1:06.4, Ali went seven furlongs in 1:31.1, and Duke stopped the clock in a time of 1:15.1 for six furlongs.

On Saturday (June 22) the two Wayne DaCosta horses galloped. Oaks winner Princess Annie galloped seven furlongs in 1:33.2 and Ian Links also went seven furlongs in 1:35.2.
