Commander Zero wins feature event
COMMANDER ZERO easily justified favouritism at Caymanas Park yesterday, when streaking away from FIRST TIME LUCKY in the 3-year-old and up overnight allowance race over the straight five course.
Ridden by champion jockey, Omar Walker for the 9-time champion trainer, Wayne DaCosta, the sparingly raced 5-year-old grey gelding won by all of six lengths.
He covered the distance in the smart time of 57.1 seconds.
Walker and DaCosta had a second winner on the nine-race programme in 1 to 9 favourite TRIAL LAWYER, which romped the fourth race over 1400 metres for 3-year-olds.
Walker’s double pushed his season’s tally to 6. He is joint third with Paul ‘Country’ Francis in the standings ¬ two adrift of leader Shane Ellis, who failed to ride a winner on the card.
Dane Nelson rode one winner in 2 to 5 favourite SULAMANI to be second with 7 wins.
