Turkey Ball, V.I. Lottery Stakes Top Holiday Race Card

First time around the track.The Turkey Ball Stakes and the V.I. Lottery Native Stakes are the co-featured contests on TRAXCO’s 10-race Thanksgiving card Sunday at the Randall “Doc” James Racetrack.

Both races are expected to be highly competitive but the Turkey Ball Stakes, race nine on the card, is the one that is most highly anticipated. This race, at a distance of 1-1/16 miles, will feature four of the top thoroughbreds in the Virgin Islands.

Slevin, the newcomer, wowed local fans in his last outing when he set a new track record for 7-1/2 furlongs without being asked for too much by his jockey. He will undoubtedly be the morning line favorite, but he will also be going up against some very tough competition in Political Reporter, Diablo’s Fire and Eire’s Run.

Eire’s Run is the current St. Croix champion and will not give up that title easily. Political Reporter is finally showing what many expected of him when he first came to the island and is coming off of a huge upset victory on St. Thomas against the best of St. Thomas and Tortola, in a race in which he was the longest shot on the board. Diablo’s Fire, St. Thomas champ, surprised on Tortola in the Premiere’s Cup and could very well do it again. All entries will carry 120 pounds.

V.I. Lottery Native Stakes, the seventh race on the card, is the second leg of the native Triple Crown and will feature the best V.I.-born thoroughbreds going 1-1/16 miles for a purse of $8,200.00.

Olmayra’s Pride (115) won the first leg and is the one to beat in what should be a very highly competitive race. Jahlisarose (115), third in the first leg, has since avenged that loss at a longer distance and is expected to be very tough here. Slew Them (118) is in good form. He will be right there at the end and could very well win this race. Joe Boss (118) has yet to win but always runs hard and may well be in the money. Diamond Colony (115) will need a big break to figure in this finish. Cruzan Emerald (118) is the long shot.
