Scores’ Even scores big

Kennard’s Memorial Emancipation Meet…

Score’s Even proved once again yesterday why it is Guyana’s premier thoroughbred.

The seven-year old grey gelding cruised to a gate to pole victory in the feature A and Lower event at Kennard’s Memorial Emancipation meet beating Bridle Stone Corner by about 10 lengths.

The pre race hype trampled the competition Score’s Even got throughout the eight furlong event.

All Alone! Score’s Even cruising to victory in yesterday’s feature A and Lower event.

This one was over early. In a scorching 1m:58.55s to be exact.

Sent off as the betting favourite, Score’s Even starting from the near post faced little opposition.

Despite fetching an eye popping 130lbs, the Dennis DeRoop owned steed already had a five-length lead  at the half mile pole.

Champion jockey, Randolph Richmond then allowed the powerful steed to cruise on the far turn before he drew off in the homestretch to seal the comprehensive win which was worth an appetizing $1M.

Bridle Stone Corner then trotted off with half that amount. Run Na Na Run was third on a beautiful day in the six-horse field.
