Stolen Money cautious of Spankhurst and Bossalina but confident of winning FRESH from a crushing win on Sunday last at the Kennard’s Memorial Turf Club, the connections of Stolen Money are confident of winning on Easter Sunday (March 31) at Port Mourant Turf Club. Despite being high on confidence, Winston Appadu, a veteran jockey and trainer of Stolen Money, noted that the Simply Royal Racing Stable top-horse is cautious of Spankhurst and Bossalina; two of the top horses in Guyana at present. “That win was perfect for us, because we did some good work on Stolen Money to get him fit. The win for Stolen Money was no surprise; we prepared them properly,” Appadu said after Sunday’s victory. Looking ahead of Easter Sunday race meeting, Appadu said: “I think we have a good chance again. The horse is on good form.” It is important to note that the Port Mourant track is larger than Bush Lot. Despite the difference in size, Appadu remained upbeat of Stolen Money’s chances of winning and adapting to the different track. “Port Mourant track is a good track for the horses. No complains. The track is a bit bigger but it will suit Stolen Money. The turns are wider and it will be a bit better.” When asked about Stolen Money chances against stinger opponents; Appadu said: Spankhurst is a good horse, and so is Bossalina, but they still have to look out for Stolen Money; that is the horse to beat.” The Easter Cup horse which is slated for Port Mourant will see G$ 10 million dollars in cash and prizes up for grabs, and according to the provisional programme, eight races are on the cards. The feature event is the Easter Cup which will be open to all horses and the distance will be 1,700 metres, along with a top cash prize of G$ 1,500,000.
