KINGSTON, Jamaica – Six juveniles face Mr Starter on Saturday. December 24, 2022, over the straight course of five furlongs.
The developing combination of jockey Anthony Thomas and trainer Philip Feanny continues in this contest with Thomas slated to mount up on the warm morning line favourite Bazinga trained by Feanny.
The Quick Galloper delves into the six runners in this two-year-old offering.
1 – HERE COMES KEN is a bay colt (February 16) by Here Comes Ben out of Sparkling Michaela trained by Winston Morris with Paul Francis aboard. Racing for the third occasion, with the learning curve continuing.
2 – BAZINGA is a bay filly (April 15) by Successful Native out of Queen of Bagdad trained by Philip Feanny with Anthony Thomas in the saddle. Made a noticeable debut on December 10 (14 days), when finishing second, just a length adrift of Show Girl going five furlongs round. Then Bazinga showed a lot of pluck, and has benefitted from that first run will be difficult to deny.
3 – TOKILLAMOCKINGBIRD is a bay colt (March 6) by Lion Tamer out of Newton’s First Law trained by Marlon Anderson with Abigail Able aboard. Was officially declared as being injured when declared to make his debut to start on December 11. Needs more time.
4 – TRULY BEGOTTEN SON is a bay colt (March 16) by Bern Identity out of Sexy Moon trained by Patrick Smellie with Raddesh Roman in the saddle. Has not shown much in the mornings. Will learn.
5 – PIGGLIE WIGGLIE is a bay filly (April 2) by Conquest Cherimash out of Save More trained by Patrick Fong with Samantha Fletcher atop. The experienced one of this lot with four starts in her hoof. Pigglie Wigglie can be backed for the exacta.
6 – TRU IDENTITY is a bay filly (May 31) by Bern Identity out of Quiet Grandeur trained by Roy Matthews with Oshane Nugent aboard. Still finding her way. Note, Tru Identity races with the figure 8 on, and first-time Lasix.
