Twisted Dreams, Parachute Coney headline Sunday Featured Race

Former V.I. champion Slevin will run in what promises to be a very fast sixth race.St. Thomas’ Twisted Dream (120) and St, Croix-based Parachute Coney (120) headlines a field of six thoroughbreds in the featured ninth race Sunday at the Randall “Doc” James Race Track.

Twisted Dream is one of the top thoroughbreds in the territory, while the surging Parachute Coney is coming off a huge upset win over former St. Croix champ Slevin in his last outing. Both horses will carry 120 pounds.

Former St. Thomas champ Diablo’s Fire, carrying 118, has also made the trip across the strait and if ready should be in the money in the 1-1/16-mile race. Simon Sez Run, 118, has been running well of late but seems to be a tad below the top two in class.

The big question mark in the race is the formerly retired El Real Madrid, carrying 118, a former Virgin Islands champ who has been away from racing for more than two years.

Remarkable Storm, 116, rounds out the field in the race.

The sixth race of the day, run at a distance of six furlongs, is also expected an exciting one. It is an open race that has drawn some of the fastest horses in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Headlining the field is former V.I. champ Slevin, in with a top weight of 122 pounds. He is going to have his hands full with stablemate Bambi Bound, 120, who is coming off of a dominating performance in the sprint classic during the St. Thomas carnival races. Plotter and Bid D, both carrying 119 pounds, are also speed demons and could steal the race. Musicinthenight, 114, and Costly Approval, 115, are speedy thoroughbreds but may be somewhat outclassed here.

The six-furlongs track record of 1:09.4, currently held by El Real Madrid of St. Croix and Broken Home of Tortola, is in serious jeopardy of falling on Sunday.
