Colonial Downs Meet Winding Down

With the summer race meet coming to an end, leading trainers A. Ferris Allen and Hamilton Smith had big days along with leading jockeys Horacio Karamanos, Rosemary Homeister, Jr. and Eric Comacho on the card Sunday at Colonial Downs.

 

Vying for the title to be Colonial Downs’ leading trainer, both A. Ferris Allen and Hamilton Smith had horses win their 4th race of four starts in the summer meet.

 

Leading trainer A. Ferris Allen came away with his first win in the third race on Sunday’s card where Eric Camacho rode atop Monavista to upset the 3-5 favorite Rose Medallion after stepping up to the $8,000 claiming level.  This was Monavista’s 4th straight victory of the short summer meet.  Allen also won later on the card in race five with Pagan Star and again in race eight with Magic Normanfor a total of 28 wins for the season.

 

Race 6  produced another 4th win for the meet when Freefromthestorm, the 3 year old Florida bred filly made a 5 wide sweeping move to "Get her done" for Owner and Trainer Hamilton Smith`s quest to defend his trainer championship in the final days of the meet.  Smith also won in race 4 with Virginia bred Porcupine for a total of 25 wins in the summer season.

 

Rosemary Homeister, Jr. was able to pull through for a win in the second race to break-even with Karamanos in, both having 38 wins at the time.  Feeling the pressure, Leading Jockey Horacio Karamanos was able to retain his lead for the day with a win in the 5th race atop Ferris Allen trained Pagan Star to pull one ahead of Homeister.  Not to be left out, jockey Eric Comacho came away with two wins on the day in race 3 and again in race 8 atop another A. Ferris Allen-trained VA bred, Magic Norman, to catch up with Homeister in having 38 wins total for the season.

 

With only three days left of the summer meet, the competition is heated as the trainers and jockeys are neck and neck here at Colonial Downs.

 

Colonial Downs presents a nine-race card on Monday, July 19th.  First post time is 4:00 PM.
