ABOVE AND BEYOND ran down and outfinished ANOTHER AFFAIR to complete the 1000 Guineas-Jamaica Oaks double for fillies at Caymanas Park on Saturday.

Winning rider, Dane Nelson, dominated the 10-race card with a four-timer whereas the filly's trainer, Anthony Nunes, saddled three winners.

ABOVE AND BEYOND confirmed her superiority over Guineas runner-up, ANOTHER AFFAIR, chasing the Robert Halledeen-ridden charge down the backstretch and into the straight, eventually overpowering her inside the final half-furlong of the 10-furlong race.

ABOVE AND BEYOND responded to a bustling ride from Nelson to win by a half-length in 2:06.4.

Nunes' TOONA CILIATA, partnered by Omar Walker, outclassed 2000 Guineas winner, WOW WOW, who was hunting a 12th straight win in the Bonnie Blue Flag Trophy.

Walker used TOONA CILIATA to dominate the three-year-old at nine furlongs and 25 yards, leading down the backstretch before going clear approaching the last half-mile.

TOONA CILIATA pulled away in the straight for a five-length win in a fast 1:53.3.

Racing continues at Caymanas Park on Sunday.
