Virgin Islands Horse Racing - Carnival Friday from St. Thomas, April 27, 2012
The 2012 Carnival Friday Racing is in full effect highlighted by 5 classic races. First up is the Miriam Georges, where Aircraft Intercept, winner of 3 straight takes on the newly transplanted Formal King and 2 hunters from the big island (St. Croix), Brave Reward and Bruno's Burst in a 6 furlong test. Next up is the annual "Ricky" Ashby for all the top sprinters in the VI. Reigning champ Really Uptown (BVI) takes on hard charging fellow countryman Broken Home (BVI) and 2 newcomers. Then the top Girls in the VI go at it in the Administrators Cup where Moments Away will try to hold off Rasta Queen (STX) , the new girl on the block Goodeveningofficer and bitter rival Glorious Memory (BVI) from taking the crown. Another rivalry continues in the Albert Benjamin Classic when this time Puertorican Emblem invades to take on Rick City's Sweet Sight but Voice of Faith and big islander Expect Smoke (STX) may have something to say about the outcome. Last but not least is the "Big One", the one we all want to see, the 2012 Governor's Cup. St Thomas' Bud White seeks to avenge his loss to East End Tap (BVI) in the third leg of the VI Triple Crown back in March, but it's not that easy with heavy hitters like Diablo's Fire (STT), Berberis (STX) and defending champ Good Prospecting (BVI) in the mix. Listen to the 10k + crown roar when the winner crosses the finnish line!!!!
