After misfiring in the Classic races, Honey Ryda found her best form yesterday as the three-year-old filly trained by Richard Azan and guided by Dick Cardenas turned in a fighting, never-say-die display and took home the O&S Tack Room feature at Caymanas Park run over 6 furlongs.

Honey Ryda was hustled to the take the lead over Outrageous Taj (Oneil Mullings) and company. In the lane Honey Ryda ,who was pasted against the inside rails, gave up the lead to Outrageous Taj. When all seemed lost heading towards the final half-a-furlong (100m), Honey Ryda rallied to nip Outrageous Taj by a neck. The final time was 1:19.2.

Honey Ryda was one of three winners on the day for Cardenas, who scored with A Seh Soup in the first race and Sotomayor in Division One of the $1-million Overnight Allowance Purewater Trophy (7 furlongs).

Cardenas on Sotomayor chased Old Braeton (O'Brien White) for first part of the race, before putting through the grey colt to take up the running with 2 furlongs to go, winning in the end by 3 lengths.

Division Two of the Purewater Trophy was won in fine style by Hilly's Halo, who completed her fourth-consecutive win.

Ridden by Dane Dawkins for trainer Gary Subratie, Hilly's Halo got home by 2 1/4 lengths ahead of Dysfunctional (Omar Walker) and Dontae (Dick Cardenas) in a fast 1:24.0.

Subratie and Dawkins then teamed up with KD Flyer to win the ninth race over the five-furlong (1,000m) straight course for their double.
