Thoroughbred Season Opens with Ag Fair Races

Horses flash past the grandstand in a distance race at RAXCO's Randall 'Doc' James Racetrack.The 2011 thoroughbred racing season gets under way Sunday at the Randall “Doc” Racetrack with the annual Agriculture and Food Fair Races.

Eight races are on the card and many of them have full gates.

The days feature race, “The Ag Fair Classic,” run at a distance of 1 1/16 miles for a purse of $6,000, will see the return of British and U.S. Virgin Island champ Lake Texoma out of Tortola, carrying 120 pounds. In his last visit to the big track, he destroyed a field that included the then St. Croix champ and highly regarded El Real Madrid, winning going away.
He is expected to get some competition from Erie’s Run, 118, who will make his second start in the V.I. and also comes with high expectations. St. Thomas will be represented by Sum Splendor, 120, who has won his last two on St. Croix and should run well on Sunday.

Rounding out the field and all representing St. Croix are Puerto Rican Emblem, 118, Temo’s Dream, 116, Spanish Market, 118, and the Speedy Green Sand.
