Ariana’s Vision storms to victory at Rising Sun


In front of a packed Rising Sun Turf Club crowd, Fazal Habibula’s Ariana’s Vision stunned the crowd with a remarkable win over Jumbo Jet’s Looking to Heaven in the main showdown of the seven-race day recently.

Ariana’s Vision was in control by seasoned jockey, Bhudram Singh in the one-mile Sonny Habibula Memorial D Class as he stormed off with the $2 million prize. In the K Class maiden and Open L Class 1400m, Black Time reigned supreme with Hurricane Lane finishing second followed by Perfect Dream and War Time in that order.

The J Class and Lower was won by Bank Note who was trailed by Cash Return, Foreign Ling and Dnastar respective­ly.

In the H Class, Unsettled Heart settled the crowd’s hearts with a clean victory as Amicable Kate finished second.

Princess Samiah won the three-year-old Guyana bred maidens and led the race from the get-go with Top Gun shooting out Maximum Wave for second place in the 1100m dash.

Colin Ross piloted Early Bird to victory in the E Class while Converter copped second place.

In the L Class maidens and J3 first-time starts, Miss Universe edged Lord’s Gift in the 1100m track. When contacted, Internatio­nal Race Official Glen Mohamed indicated, “It was a magnificen­t effort by the Jumbo Jet Thoroughbr­ed Racing Committee (JJTRC) and the entire execution team for staging yet another successful event. On behalf of the entire fraternity we would like to thank all the horse owners, jockeys, trainers, groomers and die-hard supporters for their support. It took weeks of planning and organizing with all major stakeholde­rs to run all races on the scheduled time and to shift all jockeys to the winner’s circle to be weighed. The security was out in their numbers enforcing all gates leading to the track to ensure the safety of patrons through while they rejoice and maybe be tempted to storm the track when their favorite horse wins. Trophies were given out immediatel­y after the races were run. This is just the beginning of an extremely exciting year for horse racing. So horse owners, trainers and jockeys keep up the good work.”

The much anticipate­d event was executed seamlessly with
