Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : August 24th 2014 Contents TORONTO, Canada---A
double at Woodbine on
Friday was enough to put
Barbadian Patrick Hus-
bands over the Can$5
million earnings mark for
the 2014 season, as he
also clung to second spot
in the race for the jockeys
The 41-year-old Hus-
bands, a six-time cham-
pion at the Toronto Oval,
rode winners in race three
with favourite Helio Bird,
and in race eight with
another odds-on bet Sky
Husbands now has 80
wins from 333 rides, and
is three clear of Eurico
Rosa da Silva who lies third
with 77 wins.
Luis Contreras, the two-
time defending champion,
leads with 93 wins.
Of the top five jock-
eys this season, Hus-
bands has ridden the
least mounts and boasts
the best winning per-
centage of 24 per cent.
However, he has dom-
inated the money earnings
on the backs of 15 stakes
wins, and is well clear of
Contreras with $4.4 mil-
Last season was the first
time in 15 years that Hus-
bands failed to surpass the
$5 million mark, and it was
due to a bad fall early in
the season which saw him
miss 3-1/2 months with a
broken leg. He finished
with $3.9 million.
On Friday, Husbands
opened his account over
six furlongs when Helio
Bird beat the three-year-
old and upward fillies and
mares by 3-1/4 lengths.
He raced the four-year-
old bay filly mid-pack as
the trio of Sharina,
Forester s Hope and One
Nine Nine tussled up
front, before hauling in the
leaders in the stretch to
reach the wire with effort
Husbands produced a
similar ride in race eight
over 6-1/2 furlongs with
Sky Treasure, to get home
by 2-1/2 lengths. (CMC)

Husbands passes $5m mark Paul Hanagan put a tough week
at York s Ebor meeting behind him
when getting Muhaarar up by a
nose in the Irish Thoroughbred
Marketing Gimcrack Stakes.
Mark Johnston s Jungle Cat had
made a valiant bid to make all in the
historic Group Two and Silvestre de
Sousa was in no mood to be passed
as the challengers loomed.
Not among them at the business
end was Royal Ascot winner Baitha
Alga, for whom the writing was on
the wall some way out, Frankie Det-
tori later reporting he d felt the colt
take a bad step.
As Jungle Cat was joined by
Muhaarar (7/1) on one side and Ahlan
Emarati on the other, it looked like
he might be swallowed up, but it
was only in the last stride that Paul
Hanagan s mount put his head in
Hanagan, who had endured some
tough results in the week with dis-
appointing defeats for Taghrooda
and Mukhadram, said: "He knuckled
down well, he really put his head
down for me and is really genuine.
"I thought it was a really good run
last time (third to Kodi Bear at Ascot),
and Charlie was very confident com-
ing into the race.
"It s good to get a winner, I had
my heart broken on Thursday (with
Taghrooda) but as long as she is safe
and sound that s the main thing."
Hanagan also has the highly-
regarded pair Estidkhaar and Faydhan
to look forward to among his juvenile
rides for the rest of this year, and he
added: "This lad would be right up
there with them."
Winning trainer Charlie Hills said:
"This is our third winner of the week,
so it s been good.
"He s always shown potential and
we tried to stretch him over seven
furlongs last time. He s growing up
"He s in all the top-class races and
I think the Middle Park will be his
Charlie Johnston, assistant to his
father, said of Jungle Cat, said: "I m
gutted for him, he s been to all the
big meetings and been placed at them
all and just got touched off today.
"He s been softened up by the
others and then caught on the line.
We can t be disappointed.
"He s in the Mill Reef and Middle
Park and will run in one or the other
or maybe both."
