Elle’s Vision captured a wire-to-wire victory at the Port Mourant Turf Club to win the feature event of the 2014 Guyana Cup Fever justifying the favourite tag given at the start of the race.

On the breezy Easter Sunday afternoon at the packed venue, the six year-old mare sent the turfites’ excitement high as kites, as she galloped across the finish line ahead of 10 other horses in the C2 and Lower one-mile event.

The victory was worth $2M and large trophy.

The duo of horse and jockey, Paul Delph flew down the track at a break-neck pace from start to finish, showing elite speed that bodes well for the upcoming horse race meets. CP Got Even ($1M) Treacle ($500,000) and California Strike ($250,000) were the steeds that placed second, third and fourth respectively.
