Simply the best's, simply ordinary
SIMPLY THE BEST AND DREAMING THE CODE, fillies who impressed with smashing debuts after the October 19 Cash Pot Only One For Me Trophy race, have been entered in the second leg of the Supreme Ventures Limited Two-Year-Old Series, Saturday's $3.6m Pick-3 Super Challenge at Caymanas Park.
The fillies were among 11 entries made public by Caymanas Track Limited yesterday for the 1400-metre race, joining Cash Pot Trophy winner DREAMLINER and the trio which chased him home at 1200 metres - NUCLEAR AFFAIR, FUTURE KING and SORRENTINO'S STAR.
DREAMING THE CODE is trained by Carl Anderson. She slammed rivals by a dozen lengths, clocking 1:06.0 for five and a half furlongs on her October 31 debut.
Philip Feanny, 14-time champion trainer, conditions SIMPLY THE BEST, a half-sister to Superstakes winner FRANFIELD. SIMPLY THE BEST had also debuted at 1100 metres, November 14, posting 1:06.3 for the distance.
Feanny confirmed her participation yesterday, but said he was not pleased with the filly's exercise gallop earlier that morning.
She's a nice filly. She might not be quite ready for it," he said, pointing out that she had only one five-furlong gallop before her debut.
In addition, Feanny said he needed to make checks on SIMPLY THE BEST following her exercise gallop.
"She worked this morning and was ordinary. The horse she used to beat her," he said, referring to SIMPLY THE BEST finishing heads on with JENNANDROSESGIRL in a five-furlong spin, both clocking 1:00.3.
Champion trainer Wayne DaCosta's DREAMLINER won the $2.95m 1200-metre Cash Pot Trophy, taking the first leg of the J$11.5m series dubbed the Two-Year-Old Triple Crown. The series concludes on Boxing Day, December 26, with the J$4m Supreme Ventures Limited Two-Year-Old Stakes at a mile.
