LOLA GREY, SERIOUSMANIPULATOR IN THRILLING DEAD HEAT

After the finish of the third race at Caymanas Park on Wednesday, the photo finish camera could not separate Lola Grey and Seriousmanipulator at the end of the event which was run over seven furlongs (1,400m).

Lola Grey, ridden by apprentice Raddesh Roman and trained by Gresford Smith, and Seriousmanipulator with Phillip Parchment up, trained by Donovan Plummer, hit the line together after a thrilling finish to dead heat as the winners.

Lola Grey picked up the lead turning for home and looked strong in deep stretch but Seriousmanipulator came with a strong up the lane and both horses were heads apart inside the final stages of the race, bobbing heads to the wire.

Silver Surf (Tevin Foster) who was also in contention turning for home, weakened into third place ahead of Squit (Reyan Lewis) in fourth.

Trainer Phillip Lee saddled his third winner for the 2018 racing season on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 when his nine-year-old charge He'sthereal Links won the first event on the 10-race programme.

Ridden by apprentice Kaiman McGregor, He'sthereal Links won by over four lengths ahead of The Salesman (Romario Spencer) and Aldebaran (Anthony Thomas) in a time of 1:39.3 for 7 furlongs (1,500m).

He'sthereal Links battled with Aldebaran for the lead for the first part of the race before taking control approaching the final bend. Cruising coming into the lane, McGregor then sent along He'sthereal Links, who responded well, on his way for a long overdue win.

The Supreme Racing Guide has been informed that jockey Mellisa Ward is now plying her trade in the city of Philadelphia, United States.

It is understood that Ward is currently exercising horses at her new track.

COHETE DEL EXITO GETS IT RIGHT

After some close finishes, three-year-old chestnut filly Cohete Del Exito was finally able to release the maiden tag over one mile (1,600m) on Wednesday.

Installed as the 1-5 favourite in the small field of eight runners, Cohete Del Exito made no mistake this time around when romping home by nine lengths in the native-bred three-year-olds maiden condition race.

Cohete Del Exito settled in second position at the off behind Stallwalkin'girl (Javaniel Patterson) before she went through to take up the lead at the half-mile (800m) turn. From there on it was smooth sailing for the Borris McIntosh-trainee, who won ahead of Dare To Speak (Reyan Lewis) and Hot Ice (Dane Nelson). The final time was 1:14.1.
