Stranger Danger takes Governor General's Stakes

Wayne DaCosta's unbeaten STRANGER DANGER made short work of top handicapper BIGDADDYKOOL by five and a quarter lengths in Saturday's 10-furlong Governor General's Stakes, clocking a fast 2:06.4 for an eighth win.

Carrying 121lb with Omar Walker, the unbeaten three-year-old American colt easily dismissed tactics by his rivals from  Anthony Nunes' barn to stamp his class.

After seeing off FAYROUZ, STRANGER DANGER was tackled by HOUDINI'S MAGIC down the backstretch before making his winning move four furlongs out.

STRANGER DANGER increased his lead entering the straight, leaving BIGDADDYKOOL and HOUDINI'S MAGIC struggling.

Nunes saddled three winners on the 11-race card, two-year-old debutant, CASH IS KING, in the third and SAN SIRO in the seventh and closed the card with St Leger runner-up, TOONA CILIATA, at a mile in the Errol 'Big Sub' Memorial.

Leading rider Christopher Mamdeen grabbed the last double, booting home TOONA CILIATA after a well-timed run with United States-bred SHE'S AN INTROVERT in the 10th.

Racing continues at Caymanas Park on Saturday.
