Horse Racing, the Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Oaks
« on: April 06, 2008, 04:26:18 PM »
On Friday May 2nd, the Kentucky Oaks will be run.
The favourite for the race may be a filly by the name of
Little Bell. The jockey of Little Bell is a Jakan named
Rajiv Maragh.

Then on Saturday May 3rd, the horse racing world puts
their collective vision on Churchill Downs for the Kentucky
Derby.
This year, there is a horse named Pyro, who has his last
prep this Saturday, April 12th, in the Blue Grass Stakes.
I expect him to be in the top 3, at both races, quite
possibly, he may win both.
The jock for Pyro, another Jakan by the name of Shaun
Bridgmohan.

As successful as English jocks have been around the world,
they have not fared well in Kentucky.

I hope for all jockeys in the West Indies, that both Maragh
and Bridgmohan win their respective races.
Not only will it be historic, it will be a boost for the jocks
in Trinidad, and everywhere in the West Indies.
