Dick Cardenas reels off three winners on Sunday racing card

Panamanian Dick Cardenas rode three winners at Caymanas Park on Sunday, including SOTOMAYOR in division one of the overnight allowance Purewater Trophy co-feature at seven furlongs.

Cardenas opened the 10-race card with A SEH SOUP at 7-2 before closing his three-timer with SOTOMAYOR and 2-1 chance HONEY RYDA in a driving finish over 3-5 favourite OUTRAGEOUS TAJ in the fifth.

The Panamanian closed the weekend with five winners, after posting a two-timer on Saturday, which takes him clear of Shane Ellis for second place in the jockeys' standings, 23 behind leading rider, apprentice Anthony Thomas.

SOTOMAYOR disputed the lead with 19-1 outsider OLD BRAETON before moving away to win by three and a half lengths at odds of 3-5, clocking 1:25.4.

United States-bred HILLY'S HALO was particularly impressive, winning division two in 1:24.0, her fourth consecutive victory from nine starts, one of two winners for non-claiming apprentice Dane Dawkins, who returned to boot home KD FLYER at odds of 7-1 in the ninth.

Racing resumes at Caymanas Park on Saturday.
