Patrick Fong was among three trainers saddling two winners on yesterday's 11-race card including 4-1 chance WONG DON in the 1100-metre overnight allowance sprint.

Partnered by leading rider Anthony Thomas, WONG DON split surprise leader BIMINI (9-1) and POLLY B (26-1) a half-furlong out to hang on by a neck from late-charging SARAH LEE with Aaron Chatrie.

Fong opened his account with 3-1 shot PRINCESS KAVEL, who won the fourth in a driving finish with Dick Cardenas, motoring from last at the top of the straight to deny female apprentice Natalie Berger astride LADY IN THE ARENA at the wire.

Philip Feanny's MY SUPER GIRL clocked a fast 1:06.3 for 1100 metres, beating 13-1 outsider AZARIA by two and a half lengths in the Titania Trophy for three-year-old fillies, non-winners of two races.

Another impressive winner was Gary Subratie's NUCLEAR FLIGHT, who made hacks of rivals on debut, easily beating maiden three-year-olds by nine and a half lengths at 1000 metres straight in a decent 1:00.1.

Subratie had a second winner, 7-2 chance SUBBIE, who closed strongly inside the last half-furlong to narrowly beat WINTER IS COMING and BLUE TRADITION in a three-way photo at a mile.

Anthony Nunes also saddled two winners, RUNALLDAY (5-1) and SHE'S SYMBOLIC (6-5), in the sixth and 11th races, respectively.

RUNALLDAY was the second of three winners for the day's leading rider, Wesley Henry, who opened the card astride 3-2 favourite ALL CORRECT and closed his three-timer with Subratie's NUCLEAR FLIGHT.

Racing continues at Caymanas Park on Wednesday.
