Ramgeet shines at Turf
PHOENIX, Arizona, CMC:
Meet leader Andrew Ramgeet and his son Andre, both made their presence felt at Turf Paradise with impressive wins on the eight-race card here Sunday.
Riding at the southwestern racetrack, Ramgeet Jr paired with 2-1 chance Russian Royalty to beat the three-year-old maidens by 11/2 lengths over six furlongs in race two.
The senior Ramgeet was forced to wait until race six before tasting success, however, piloting 2-1 bet Siduri to a handsome 21/4 length win in a 61/2 furlong contest.
Despite Sunday's success, the Ramgeets have experienced contrastingly different campaigns.
While Andrew tops the standings with 75 wins - four clear of nemesis Scott Stevens - Andre has only nine wins from 123 rides for the season which began October 15 and winds up May 7.
He lies 17th in the standings.
