KINGSTON, Jamaica - The Kingston, a 7 ½ furlong race for three-year-old colts and geldings serves as a stepping stone to greater glory in the Classics, has attracted a talented field of nine entrants, each with their own hopes and dreams on the line.

At the top of the list is the intriguing prospect of Intrestntimesahead (5), a champion two-year-old who has already stamped his class on the season.

The bay colt, by Bold Conquest out of My Friend Lucy, made a triumphant return to the races in the Prince Consort Stakes, overcoming traffic problems to rally home and win with authority. Trained by Jason DaCosta and partnered with jockey Tevin Foster, Intrestntimesahead brings undeniable form to The Kingston and will be a formidable force to reckon with, despite carrying top weight.

The Prince Consort Stakes also provided valuable insights into the other contenders.

Crown Chaser (7), a bay colt by Bern Identity out of Salty Talk, put in a strong performance to finish second, albeit well behind Intrestntimesahead.

Trained by Anthony Nunes and ridden by Raddesh Roman, Crown Chaser showed good pace and battling qualities, and the extra half-furlong of The Kingston should suit his style perfectly. He is certainly a horse to keep an eye on and could be a major player in the outcome of this race.

Another horse to note is Provident (1), a chestnut colt by Sensational Slam out of Dream Point. Trained by Jason DaCosta and with jockey Josue Osorio in the saddle, Provident made a promising debut just 15 days ago over 6 ½ furlongs. While he faces a quick turnaround, his raw talent and the potential for improvement make him an interesting dark horse in The Kingston.

The remainder of the field brings varying degrees of experience and potential to the table.

Paper Work (6), a chestnut colt by Sensational Slam out of Abicadabby, is still learning his trade, but hails from a powerful stable under trainer Gary Subratie.

Allegiance (8), a chestnut colt by Midnight Hawk out of Princess Geeta, struggled in his last outing but comes from a respected yard, while Captain Sparrow (9), a bay colt by Savoy Stomp out of Rackam's Mistress, showed some promise in the Prince Consort and could improve with a better break from the gates.

However, the race may ultimately boil down to a battle between Intrestntimesahead and Crown Chaser. Both horses have proven their ability and have the right style for The Kingston. The question remains whether Intrestntimesahead's superior form can overcome the extra half-furlong and the weight advantage of his rival.

The Kingston promises to be a thrilling contest, with the potential for a new star to emerge and stake their claim on the road to the Triple Crown. As always, the key will be to watch the horses closely in the final minutes before the race, as form and condition can often tell the tale in these crucial races.
