Improving filly Nuclear Flight gained sweet revenge on recent conqueror Another Vigorous by three parts of a length in a Restricted Stakes event at Caymanas Park yesterday.

Trained by Gary Subratie and ridden by Wesley Henry, Nuclear Flight missed the break on last going five-and-a-half furlongs (1,100m) and was outdone by Another Vigorous by four lengths.

Yesterday, going five furlongs (1,000m) straight, Nuclear Flight got a good break and was entangled with Another Vigorous from the start as the two speeders went at it.

Nuclear Flight (Wesley Henry), showing her likeness for the straight, then edged away from Another Vigorous, (Oneil Scott) to win her third race from four career starts. The final time was 59.3.

The imported American Invader, a two-year-old chestnut filly, made a noticeable debut by scoring a good front-running length-and-a-quarter win in the $950,000 Terremoto Trophy.

Owned by Carlton Watson, trained by Wayne DaCosta and ridden by Omar Walker, American Invader covered the five furlongs (1,000m) round in 1:00.0, defeating Moms Treasure and Baltusrol.

The Master Blaster Trophy supporting feature event over the five-furlong (1,000m) straight course was won in come-from-behind style by Killer Bee.

Killer Bee, trained by Spencer Chung and ridden by Dick Cardenas, was able to get up in time to beat long-time leader Zi Beast (Oneil Mullings) by three parts of a length in a good time of 59.0 in the Restricted Allowance event for native-bred four-year-old and upward non-winners of three others.

Apprentice Oneil Scott continued his rich vein of form as he posted a three-timer on the 10-race programme. this winners were Royal Girl, Master Of Hall and Lala Diva.

Racing continues next Saturday.
