KINGSTON, Jamaica - Jockey Sadiki Blake paid a rare visit to the winners’ circle aboard the Wilfred Chin-conditioned Chiney Music in a native-bred five-year-old and upwards (non-winners of two) call travelling 4½ furlongs (900m) on Sunday, March 12.

The ever-patient Blake broke Chiney Music behind the early pace as Hopenperseverance (Chris Mamdeen), Dotlin (Roger Hewitt), Gone A Negril (Samantha Fletcher), and Tiger Bella (Jordan Barrett) vied for the advantage. As the runners sorted themselves out, Dotlin emerged as the lone leader approaching the dummy rails, with Gone A Negril, Chiney Music, and JB Flyer (Ramon Nepare) chasing.

Blake asked Chiney Music for an effort, and the five-year-old grey mare went to challenge Dotlin for the lead inside the final furlong (200m) before pulling away to win by 2½ lengths in a time of 57.4. Hopenperseverance came through for second place ahead of Gone A Negril in third place.
