RANDOLPH SCOTT NOTCHES FIRST WIN FOR 2018

Trainer, Randolph Scott finally got off the mark after 24 starts when his bay mare Hello Lady romped home in the fourth race over six-and-and-a-half furlongs (1,300m) on Saturday.

Ridden by red-hot apprentice Christopher Mamdeen, Hello Lady won by over two lengths ahead of Party Princess (Jawani Forbes) in a time of 1:22.2.

Hello Lady raced in mid pack behind Big Paul (Phillip Parchment), The Nextbigting (Carlos Blake Jr) and Mr Doitbetta (Dane Nelson) in the early exchanges of the BK Breakfast Combo Run Trophy.

Even after leaving the half-mile (800m), Hello Lady was still lingering way off the pace but the Fearless Vision offspring came with a strong run in deep stretch to blow away rivals in the end.

Hello Lady's victory was also influenced by a change in equipment as the bay mare raced with the cheek piece on.

The Supreme Racing Guide offers it condolences to trainer Scott who lost his wife recently.

ORLANDO FOSTER BRINGS HOME ANOTHER WINNER

Capable jockey Orlando “Chucky” Foster, who seems to have found a new lease on life continued to enjoy the latter part of the season. The Gregory Park, St Catherine native has been getting the rides of late and he has responded by bringing home the winners.

On Saturday, Foster rode his fourth winner for the year when he guided, Meet Justin to a 22-1 upset win in the Little Caesars Hot 'N' Ready Trophy over seven furlongs.

Meet Justin got a good break but had to settle in second position as Diferentgeneration (Tevin Foster - Orlando's brother), who was slowly into stride, shot through on the inside rails to assume the lead.

Meet Justin sat and waited until approaching the drive, then took over and went on his merry way, scoring by a length and a quarter in a good time of 1:27.3.

Leekout (Dick Cardenas) came on strong for second place, while Yolove (Daniel Satchell) also came on good for third place.

BULLET RAJ LOVES THE FIVE STRAIGHT

Bullet Raj is one of those horses that continues to do well this season especially in the claiming ranks and over the five straight. The five-year-old chestnut horse won the Popeye's Bonafide Dash Trophy on Saturday for his fifth win for the season from 10 starts.

Trained by Lawrence Freemantle and ridden by apprentice Reyan Lewis, Bullet Raj made one move to win the five straight (1,000m) event by three lengths in 1:00.3.

Bullet Raj broke well and stayed with the field for the most of the race before drawing off in the end for an easy win. Union Four (Daniel Satchell) was second and Jamaican Citizen (Dick Cardenas) third.

CHURCHILL DOWNS EXERCISE RIDER DIES IN ACCIDENT

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Churchill Downs says exercise rider Odanis “Cuba” Acuna died in a training accident when his horse broke down with catastrophic injuries.

The 42-year-old rider for trainer Kenny McPeek was breezing unraced two-year-old New York Harbor when the horse fell about a sixteenth of a mile before the finish line at around 5:45 am on Saturday last.

A release from the track states that emergency medical personnel who treated Acuna believe he died instantly from the spill. Track officials and veteran horsemen believe his death was Churchill Downs' first from a training accident in several decades, the release added.

McPeek called Acuna “one of the hardest working guys you'd ever meet.” Training ceased after the accident and a moment of silence for the rider was held before Saturday's first race.
