Scores Even wins feature event, $1.2m

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

The eight-year old grey gelding galloped to a gate to pole victory in the feature A and Lower event at the Port Mourant Turf Club beating CP Got Even by about four lengths.

The pre-race hype for the event dubbed ‘The Clash of the Titans’ trampled the competition the ‘Big Grey’ got throughout most of the eight furlong event.

Score’s Even with champion jockey, Rad Drepaul in the stirrups takes the A and Lower event ahead of CP Got Even by about four lengths.

This one was over early. In a scorching 1m: 54:53s to be exact.

Sent off as the betting favourite, Score’s Even starting from the fourth post set a blistering pace straight out of the gates.

Despite fetching an eye popping 136 pounds, the Dennis Deoroop owned steed already had a two-length lead at the half mile pole.

The day’s champion jockey, Rad Drepaul then allowed the powerful steed to cruise on the far turn as the pair of Dark Brown Mares, CP Got Even and Treacle fetching 108 pounds each gained ground.

The short lived theatrics sent the packed turf club into a frenzy.

However, with a flick of Drepaul’s whip, the 1000-pound race horse then drew off in the homestretch to seal the comprehensive win which was worth an appetizing $1.2M.

It was the second win in as many starts for the Simply Royal Stables product.

CP Got Even, a Guyana Cup winner trotted off with half the winner’s purse.

Last year’s winningest horse, Treacle (seven wins) was third on a beautiful day in the six-horse field.
