DID THE BASICS Spence said he simply did the basics … broke him sharply, rated him on the lead and his class did the rest. “I won with him on his debut over 1100 metres in February and he ran an amazing time of 1:05.3,” recalls Spence. “From then, I knew he had a touch of class, and this manifested itself today … He’s better than these horses and with further scope for improvement, I expect him to go far in racing,” added Spence, who is popularly called ‘Dolly Baby’. With the top three riders vying for the championship having a lean day, Robert Halledeen seized the opportunity to inch ahead in the title race after the Wayne DaCosta-trained MISS JUANITA (9-2) was awarded the eighth race for overnight horses on the disqualification of 9-1 chance BOLD AVIATOR, who won in a blanket finish with Aaron Chatrie aboard. Halledeen now leads with 51 wins, one ahead of Ellis and two ahead of Omar Walker, both of whom failed to ride a winner. Apprentice Renardo McNaughton stole the spotlight with two winners – MARKOFAPRINCE (9-5) and the 30-1 outsider, COOL U BOOTS, in the closing race. The progressive 3-y-o colt BUZZ NIGHTMARE completed a hat-trick of wins at Caymanas Park yesterday, making virtually all to win the third running of the O & S Tack Room Trophy restricted stakes over 1300 metres in fine style. Installed a 4-5 favourite with veteran jockey Ian Spence riding for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny, BUZZ NIGHTMARE broke smartly from the number-nine post position, but was soon joined on the inside by 2-1 second favourite, ROAD WI SEH, in the 10-horse field. But with Spence having a lot in hand, BUZZ was merely toying with ROAD WI SEH and opened up, leaving the half mile to turn for home two lengths clear of the ever-present ROYAL ASSAULT under title-chasing jockey Shane Ellis. Thereafter, BUZZ NIGHTMARE only had to be kept up to his work under the left hand stick from his 49-year-old jockey, beating ROYAL ASSAULT and the late-closing WINGS OF HOPE (24-1). Owned by 2 Penyu and bred by HAM Stables Limited, BUZZ NIGHTMARE was notching his fourth win from only five career starts and achieved the victory in yet another fast time – 1:19.2 behind splits of 23.1, 46.3 and 1:11.4 for the first 1200 metres.
