My Elle Belle looks set to return to winning ways at Caymanas Park
Trainer Spencer Chung’s United States-bred filly, MY ELLE BELLE, gets an ideal trip in Saturday’s overnight allowance, seven and a half furlongs, partnered by leading rider, apprentice Christopher Mamdeen, and running among horses who have never won at the level.
Facing 11 rivals in the 5:25 p.m. ninth race at Caymanas Park, four-year-old MY ELLE BELLE’s only real threat appears to be CAPTUREMYSHIP. However, the local-bred five-year-old will have to prove his last run, coming off an eight-month lay-up, was no fluke.
CAPTUREMYSHIP finished third, a length and a half third, at odds of 99-1, in the June 1 Ahwhofah Trophy behind ZEPHYR and LOTTERY TICKET, his best performance in more than a year.
Last time out, May 11, MY ELLE BELLE finished second but was disqualified and placed fifth in a seven-furlong contest won by UNCLE FRANK. In addition to finishing ahead of UNCLE VINNIE, STORM VALLEY, EL PROFESOR and MADAM SECRETARY, MY ELLE BELLE also beat LOTTERY TICKET, SARATOGA SIGHT and BRUCE WAYNE, horses who returned weeks later to frank the form.
SARATOGA SIGHT and third-past-the-post BRUCE WAYNE returned to complete the exacta in the Ren Gonsalves Memorial at 10 furlongs. LOTTERY TICKET, who was eased, was a strong second in the Ahwhofah Trophy behind ZEPHYR at six furlongs, relegating CAPTUREMYSHIP to third and 1-2 favourite, LEGALITY to fourth.
First post for the 10-race card is 12:20 p.m.
