With Trinidad and Tobago's Lenny Seecharan, the 2018 Hasting Racecourse in British Columbia, Canada champion apprentice jockey, twin brother Learie C Secharan is trying to emulate his performance in 2019. The racing twins have been doing well on the racetracks.
The 22-year-old who won the 2018 apprentice Jockey Championship at the Hastings Race Course looks set to better that performance in 2019. Last week was a good week for him as he guided two horses for trainer John Snow into the winner's enclosure.
Lenny guided Burnham home at odds of 8-1 over 5 1/2 furlongs to add to his tally. He then came back to double up with Horst at the good odds of 4-1 also for Snow.
Lenny said, "He was happy to have ridden the two winners for trainer Snow as the horses travelled well in the race and picked up when he asked him to run. "He said, "I intend to get as much experience as he can and land as many winners as he can in 2019.
Brother Learie is having a good season also and he will be remembered for his rides on the Harold Chadee trained gelding Buffalo Soldier. The old-stager showed the racing fraternity and punters alike that age is just a number.
The eleven-year-old brown gelding turned back the clock, for Seechran in November last year, when he scored at odds of 45/1 when beating the Gold Cup winner Nuclear Power and runner-up Valorous in the process.
Learie also had a great week as he landed two winners to stake his claim for the 2019 Apprentice Championship.
Learie walked in the winner's enclosure last week Saturday with Pilmarack which scored at odds of 3/1 for trainer Dave Milburn, before doubling up with Peyton's best at 9/2 for trainer Frank Baroby.
Both Seecharans are expected to do T&T proud at Hasting Racecourse in British Columbia, Canada as the racing season continues year.
