May 12, SLLP – Saturday’s 13 races were a mixed bag of favorites and longshots. Flavorofthemonth, Joletsky, and Air The Truth, all outstanding picks, ruled the first three races.
Race 4, however, was a whole different story. Jawbreaker, third to the last in sales, was ridden hard by Reynaldo B. Baylon and won over another longshot, Long Hitter, with a length and a half to spare.
Songbird, the darkest horse of all in Race 9, surprised everyone with a courageous late run to triumph with Christopher V. Garganta.
Virgin Island scored another win for owner Sonny Arevalo, steered by Oyet Alcasid who won on his Virgin Empress the previous night.
