Really Uptown Looks to Stay On Top in Flamboyant Stakes

Really Uptown edged Slevin in a race for the ages last Thanksgiving.Tortola’s Really Uptown leads a field of top thoroughbred imports in the featured Flamboyant Stakes, the second leg of the V.I. Triple Crown, on TRAXCO’s Agriculture Fair Weekend race card at the Randall “Doc” James Race Track on Sunday.

The stakes, the 11th race run at a distance of 1-1/8 miles, will see the highly regarded Really Uptown trying to extend his dominance over V.I. racing. His main competition should come from Slevin, who will be trying to avenge back to back defeats.

Another Tortola entry, Good Prospecting, and St. Thomas’ Sweet Sight should also be in the mix and could pull the upset at this distance. Two local entries in Gato Paso and Political Reporter round out the field. Gato Paso has been sprinting of late and now looks to stretch out to 1-1/8 miles. Political Reporter is a long shot to make the winner’s circle, but then again this is horse racing and stranger things have happened.
