An­other big race dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Orville Clarke Gleaner Writer

HIGH DRAMA en­gulfed Cay­manas Park yes­ter­day af­ter an­other ma­jor race this sea­son when first-past-the-post FRANFIELD was dis­qual­i­fied in the 38th run­ning of the Burger King Su­per­stakes over 2000 me­tres and the race awarded to the 2-1 sec­ond favourite BIGDADDYKOOL.

FRANFIELD, who won the race last year af­ter sur­viv­ing a stew­ards’ en­quiry, was not so lucky this time around. Of­fer­ing odds of 4-1, with top ap­pren­tice Be­beto Har­vey rid­ing for trainer Richard Azan, FRANFIELD, who led un­der pres­sure from two-time win­ner TYPE­WRITER (6-1) and 3-5 favourite SEEK­ING MY DREAM, un­der lead­ing jockey Omar Walker, pre­vailed by a head from the stretchrun­ning 3-y-o geld­ing BIGDADDYKOOL, rid­den by cham­pion ap­pren­tice Lin­ton Stead­man for trainer An­thony ‘Baba’ Nunes in a tor­rid last 100 me­tres duel.

How­ever, amid ex­cite­ment and an­tic­i­pa­tion from the large crowd, the po­si­tions of the first two were re­versed by the stew­ards, fol­lowed by ‘Horse of the Year’ SEEK­ING MY DREAM in third an­other four lengths away, af­ter be­ing forced to be switched to the inside a fur­long out when mount­ing a chal­lenge on the out­side of FRANFIELD.

The race brought back mem­o­ries of this year’s Cal’s Ja­maica Derby in June, which re­sulted in first-past-the-post FUTURE KING be­ing dis­qual­i­fied and placed third and the race awarded to the third horse, OR­PHEUS, also trained by Nunes.

DIS­QUAL­I­FI­CA­TION JUS­TI­FIED

The sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion trainer thought the de­ci­sion to dis­qual­ify FRANFIELD was jus­ti­fied.

“It was clear for ev­ery­one to see ... Franfield drifted out re­peat­edly into Big Daddy through­out the last fur­long and this was a clear case of in­tim­ida­tory rid­ing. This type of rid­ing can­not be tol­er­ated in a race with so much at stake, but I have no doubt that Bigdaddykool was the best horse in the race,” Nunes said.

A 3-y-o bay geld­ing by Sor­rentino out of Be­ware Baby, BIGDADDYKOOL Is owned by the Trinida­dian Stephan Narinesingh and bred by HAM Sta­bles Lim­ited. He had pre­vi­ously won the Lotto Clas­sic and St Leger and, ac­cord­ing to Nunes, will now be pre­pared for the rich Di­a­mond Mile on De­cem­ber 10.

Mean­while, it was a most event­ful day at the track as the stew­ards dis­qual­i­fied all of three win­ners on the card, in­clud­ing A THOUSAND STARS (7-1) in the Coca Cola In­vi­ta­tional Mile. And top sprinter BUZZ NIGHT­MARE, a 1-4 favourite, was beaten by his lesser fan­cied sta­ble­com­pan­ion CAMPESINO (6-1) in the Glen Mills O.J. Caribbean Sprint.
