Apprentice Reyan Lewis boots home three winners at Caymanas Park
Apprentice Reyan Lewis was the top rider on Saturday's Jockeys' Guild Day at Caymanas Park with three winners, scoring back-to-back victories with 3-1 shot LADY V in the fifth and EL PROFESOR at 2-1 in the sixth, closing his three-timer with another 2-1 runner, RISING BOP.
Meanwhile, title-chasing apprentice, Christopher Mamdeen hopes of a three-timer were dashed with the late scratch of ante-post favourite, MY SUPER GIRL, in the sixth event, but he still managed to reduce Omar Walker's lead atop the jockeys' standings by landing two winners.
The two-kilo claiming rider moved his tally to 23 wins, taking the third event astride BLU ATTITUDE and guided home 4-5 favourite SENDAMESSAGETOMAMA, who closed the late double for trainer Errol Waugh after LOOSE CANNON landed the 10th.
Walker, for the second straight meet, had only one win, Wayne DaCosta's 1-5 favourite, AMERICAN INVADER, beating HARRY'S TRAIN in the second event.
Meanwhile, trainer Anthony Nunes and jockey Robert Halledeen had teamed up to win both divisions of the seven-furlong maiden event for three-year-olds, first with the grey filly, ENVISAGED, who clocked a much slower time than her stablemate, debutant BIG BANG, coming home five and three-quarter lengths clear in 1:28.2.
A runaway winner, BIG BANG after pressed by BLOODSWEATANDTEARS to the furlong pole, pulled away to win by seven lengths in 1:26.3.
The season's first classics, the 1000 and 2000 Guineas, will highlight back-to-back meets this weekend, starting with the fillies on Saturday.
