St. Thomas' Sir Pyy to Challege Three Locals in Father's Day Feature

June 13, 2008 — The horses will be off and running Sunday at the Randall "Doc" James race track for the Father's Day races.
TRAXCO has put together another well-matched card, with some tough competition coming from St. Thomas to challenge the top thoroughbreds on St. Croix. The seventh race on the card will be the feature race of the day, and it will be a one-mile encounter for a purse of $4,000 dollars. Sir Pyy (118), a much-heralded campaigner from St. Thomas, will make his debut on St. Croix in the feature. There to defend the home turf will be three local horses in Idol Worship (116), Crafty Smile (115) and Gallego (118). Crafty Smile, the speedster, ran a huge race last time out, but got nipped at the wire by Black Jack Bob.
The 7.5-furlong sixth race, for a purse of $3600, should also be very exciting. Black Jack Bob (117), coming off a big win last time out, will be joined by the always tough Carson Secrets (116), the up-and-coming Carse (114) and the speedster Marfin Express (114) in defending the home turf against two tough competitors from St. Thomas in Silver Horn (118) and Rubiano's Jewel (114).
