Trevor Simpson, Anthony Allen boot home two-timers at Caymanas Park

Five-time champion jockey, Trevor Simpson, and leading rider, claiming apprentice, Anthony Allen, scored contrasting two-timers at Caymamas Park on Saturday.

Simpson booted home his winners at the back end of the nine-race card, 5-1 chance, KEY WITNESS, in the eighth, and brought down the curtains astride 8-1 shot, DUNROBIN.

DUNROBIN outsped EYE CANDY and BOLD AFLAIR on the lead at five and a half furlongs then stayed on strong to hold off CAMPESINO in the overnight allowance event.

Allen, who had opened the programme astride DEVINE LEXIE, extended his lead atop the jockey's standings to seven wins after being awarded the eighth event aboard 6-5 favourite, MILKMAN, following the disqualification of CLEOPATRA'S CHILD, partnered by Dane Dawkins, who had earlier won aboard MAHOGANY.

Dawkins suffered a major disappointment when losing what he thought was a two-timer astride United States-bred CLEOPATRA'S CHILD in the eighth.

After making all at five furlongs round, CLEOPATRA'S CHILD number was taken down at the scale, Dawkins weighing in two pounds lighter than the 120lb with which he went out.

MAHOGANY, who posted 1:26.0 for seven furlongs, was one of two impressive three-year-old winners for trainer Ian Parsard at the distance, the other being debutant DOUBLE CROWN, who won by five and a half lengths in 1:27.0.

Racing continues at Caymamas Park on Saturday.
