Tomorrow's race meet at Caymanas Park is being sponsored by O&S Tack Room, a company established at the track a year ago to sell horse equipment, medication and other accessories to racing personnel.

The 10-race race programme will feature the second running of the three-year-old and up restricted stakes for the O & S Tack Room Trophy race over 1300 metres with a purse of $765,000, Fifteen starters have been declared, including top contenders FRANFIELD, BARS OF GOLD, RAGAMUFFIN and the unbeaten LUCKY MICHELLE.

The Tack Room is situated in the official car park at Caymanas Park, adjacent the First Aid Post. The facility is run by popular owner Oneil Hinds (O'Shaun Connection) and his wife, Shauna Kay.

Hinds, who has won a total of 16 races so far this season with horses racing in his familiar light blue and white silks, said sponsoring the meet is his idea of giving back.

"Racing has been good to me as an owner and with the Tack Room getting the support of the racing fraternity and it being a success as well, I am happy to throw my company's support behind the meet," he said.

Similar sentiments were expressed by Shauna Kay, who added that all the races on the card, with the exception of the Saint Cecelia Trophy principal feature, will carry the names of O & S Tack Room products such as Biotin Complete, Acti Felx 4000, Quick Blister, Stop The Pain, Muscle Max Quick Dash and Electro Charge.
