Guyanese horse owner Jeremy Rachpaul has had much success in Jamaica with his horse, Easy as ABC, storming to victory at the Caymanas Park at the weekend.
Piloted by veteran jockey Roderick DaCosta, Easy as ABC displayed brilliance to win the Liu Chie Poo Trophy in a race run over eight furlongs, with Easy as ABC going off at odds of 3-1.
Easy as ABC, an American four-year-old colt trained by Donovan Hutchinson, won the race by four and a half lengths in one minute, 39 seconds.
Trainer of Easy as ABC, Donavan Hutchinson, was beyond happy after the victory.
“It was a very good performance from my horse, because my jockey rode a very perfect race. Before the race, my jockey and I discussed that Digital One and Neo Star were going to run for the lead and tire themselves out. So I told him to relax, and anything he asked of the horse he would give, because this horse loves to win races,” Hutchinson told the Jamaican media.
As the race progressed, Easy as ABC entered the home stretch in fourth position before splitting the early leaders Neo Star and Digital One in the final furlong, and moving away from his rivals to win the race quite comfortably.
It was the fourth win of the season for DaCosta who resides in Toronto, Canada.
“I am very happy for this win, because I have been working with this horse for the past six months, so I was confident that he was going to get this win. I am just hoping that I can win a few more races before I go back home in the next few weeks,” this jockey has said.
Easy as ABC, from the Night Eyes Racing Stables, is the son of Arrogate, and has a big reputation in regard to winning races. This is the second victory for the horse in as many months.
