Master Of Hall rules in Bonnie Blue Flag Trophy

Apprentice Reyan Lewis completed back-to-back three-timers at Caymanas Park on Saturday, adding icing to the cake with a runaway victory aboard MASTER OF HALL in the Bonnie Blue Flag Trophy feature event at nine furlongs and 25 yards.

Among Lynch's three winners was ALEXA'S STAR in the eighth race, making all at six and a half furlongs for trainer Patrick Lynch with whom he had combined on Monday to post a rare jockey-trainer three-timer.

Lewis had earlier opened his tally with 17-1 outsider, BIGMAN UNION, in the third event, getting the better of fellow apprentice and leading rider, Christopher Mamdeen, aboard even-money favourite, ALL CORRECT.

In the feature, Lewis broke MASTER OF HALL sharply from his inside draw, relaxed his mount down the backstretch and attacked DRUMMER BOY off the home turn.

MASTER OF HALL ran away in the stretch run, finishing 10 and a half lengths clear of HOUDINI'S MAGIC in the open allowance event, clocking 1:56.2.

Lewis' six winners in two meets have him level with six-time former champion jockey,  Omar Walker, joint second in the riders' standings on 27 wins, four behind Mamdeen.

Walker and Mamdeen each had a winner on the 10-race card, FEARLESS LEGEND and REASONS, in the opening event and fourth race, respectively.

Racing continues at Caymanas Park on Saturday with the running of the Jamaica Oaks at 10 furlongs in which leading trainer Anthony Nunes' unbeaten 1000 Guineas winner I Am Di One is the ante-post favourite to log her third win.
