Dane Nelson boots home three-timer at Caymanas Park

Three-time former champion jockey Dane Nelson booted home a three-timer on Saturday's 11-race card at Caymanas Park including REGGAE GONE GRAMMY, who romped to an eight-and-half length win in division two of the six-furlong John Clifton Wright Memorial Cup

Gary Subratie's debutante, PRINCESS LAUREN, won division one with Dane Dawkins, who rode two winners on the programme, returning to land the 10th with 3-2 chance, MR AMBASSADOR.

PRINCESS LAUREN, a 2-1 chance, was slowly into stride and next-to-last for the first furlong but mended nicely wide of rivals to go past the 95-1 leader, MYSTIC MAMA, two and a half furlongs out.

The Soul Warrior-Lipstick Lily offspring ran away to easily beat BLACK RIVER, who closed late past MYSTIC MAMA, by three and a quarter lengths in a time of 1:14.1.

REGGAE GONE GRAMMY, a 3-2 shot, reported refitted with the figure eight and tackled CRYPTOCURRENCY on the lead, rushing past three furlongs out.

CRYPTOCURRENCY lost second-place close home to CASE CLOSED as REGGAE GONE GRAMMY ran out an eight-and-half length winner in 1:14.1.

Nelson won the following race aboard UNCLE FREDDIE at five furlongs straight, tracking UNCLE WAL before powering home at odds of 3-1, closing a double for Subratie.

He closed his three-timer with a mild upsetter, 6-1 shot NUCLEAR LAVA, making all in the ninth at a mile, clocking 1:40.1.

Racing continues with a 10-race card scheduled for Wednesday.
