Latin King for Claiming Series
The popular CTL Claiming Series for $250,000 to $210,000 claimers continues at Caymanas Park today, with race Number 4 over 1400 metres.
Ten starters will contest the race including LATIN KING, who romped the second race in the series over 1600 metres on February 27, as well as the recent winners SAMBA DANCER, LA’S DANCER, DUST ROCK and CASH PAT.
The race will more than likely come down to LATIN KING and LA’S DANCER, both of whom are basically better at this level when fit and well.
Preference, however, is for the Barry Dawes-trained LATIN KING, the mount of champion jockey Omar Walker.
On the strength of his 9-and-a-half lengths demolition of this class in the series two months ago, LATIN KING, now dropped in class, looks the right choice.
There will be nine other races on the card with post time being 1 p.m.
