Two Native Classic Races Highlight Sunday Race Card

The horses will be off and running at the Randall “Doc” James Race Track on Sunday in an eight-race card highlighted by two big races for native thoroughbreds. The Windflow Invitational and The Cruzan Rum Native Classic both with a purse of $6,200 and run at a distance of one mile will feature the best in native bred thoroughbreds in the territory.

The Windflow Invitational, the first to run of the two and fourth race on the card, is comprised of horses from class N-2 through N-5 and is a very solid field. Express to Cali is coming off an impressive victory in his last outing, having held off the talented War in the stretch for the win. Dinero was also impressive in his last outing beating five of the horses matched against him for Sunday’s race. They both may be running for second place however if the former champ, Prince Krystal, is anywhere nears his best on Sunday.

Creation Rebel on his best day could also surprise here. Rounding out the six-horse field is Kings of Kings and Gold Finger. The horses will all be carrying even weight at 119 pounds.

The Cruzan Rum Native Classic for N5 and N6 class natives will feature Small Fortune, Kwaska and Midnight Jury Trial carrying 118 pounds while 77 07 Rita, From Emeralds To Ruby’s and Ms. Kosi will carry 115 pounds.

This race is wide open but many expect Small Fortune to be a slight favorite based on the higher level of competition he has faced in the past. After that, any on the remaining five thoroughbreds could easily find themselves in the winner’s circle.

The Usie Richards Sprint wraps up the day’s classics and will feature six of the best imported thoroughbreds in the U.S. Virgin Islands in Gallant Ruler out of St. Thomas and Cherokee Law, El Real Madrid, Little boy Brew, Groomsman and Rotation from St. Croix.

Groomsman has established himself as one of the top sprinters in the territory against slightly lesser Competition, but he will now be going up against some top class thoroughbreds on Sunday. After his dominating debut on St. Croix Last race day, El Real Madrid is easily the morning line favorite and for many he is the best race horse since Carse to have graced the shores of the big island — and arguably the Virgin Islands. Former champ Gallant Ruler gets his first shot at El Real Madrid.
