The John O’Brien trained Pauseforacoors made it three wins from three starts yesterday as she made every yard of the running to win the feature Handicap for three-year-olds and over horses rated 70 and over.

Punters made Pauseforacoors the 4/5 favourite to land the hat-trick and she delivered a long neck in the time of 1:12.00 on a wet/fast track at Santa Rosa Park, Arima.

When the starter sent the six-horse field on its way, Brian Boodramsing sent Pauseforacoors straight to the front and she never saw another rival until 100 metres from home when second favourite Princess Suri came to challenge.

Going up the backstretch, Pausaeforacoors had a length lead on the top-weighted Whisper Light with Princess Suri closing up in third. These were followed by Onefortheroad, Root of Jesse and newcomer Risk To Riches trailing.

At the far turn, Boodramsing allowed Pasueforacoors to stride on and she opened a three-length lead on Princess Suri which came in pursuit as Whisper Light was being tapped for toe in the conditions.

Onefortheroad was keeping on at one pace in fourth with Root Of Jesse struggling ahead of Risk of To Riches.

At the top of the straight, Pauseforacoors held a healthy three-length lead on Princess Suri on which Ronald Ali was asking for maximum effort and she was responding.

However, the post was always going to come too late for Princess Suri and Pauseforacoors ran out a cheeky winner by a neck with Whisper Light 8 3/4 length further back in third.

Training honours for the day fell to the in-form Glenn Mendez, who saddled three winners in Cape Canaveral, Golden Choice and Lombard Street.

Riding honours for the day were shared between Boodramsing and Ricky Jadoo, both of whom rode two winners apiece.
