Cinque Terre Takes On the Boys in Sunday Race

They're off and running.The horses will be off and running on Sunday at the Randall “Doc” James Race track in what is being billed as a pre-Fourth of July warm-up special. TRAXCO, the race track manager, has put together a somewhat short but well matched seven-race card, and Sunday’s races should be full of excitement.

The day’s feature will be the seventh race, run at a distance of 7-1/2 furlongs for a purse of $4100. In this race, arguably the hottest mare on St. Croix, Cinque Terre (114), will try her luck against the boys. She will have some tough competition in the front-running speedster Puerto Rican Emblem (119), the likely pre-race favorite; a tough veteran campaigner in Charlie Cho (117); and the late running Black Jack Bob (116).

But Cinque Terre’s handlers believe the mare is ready to step up to the challenge after three straight victories against her own gender, and they will be very confident of victory on Sunday.
