Learie Seecharan has returned to the winner's enclosure at Hasting Racecourse. The Twenty-five-year old Trinidad and Tobago's jockey entered the winner's circle for the fourth time when he guided the winner's enclosure on Monday night in the final event on the day's seven-race card at Hastings Racecourse in Canada.
Two weeks ago Learie celebrated his third win of the 2021 racing season. Last week Monday, he also entered the winner's circle when he guided Ombre Rose to victory.
Learie repeated the performance last night when he guided Ombre' Rose to a comfortable six lengths victory in the final event over One and One-Sixteenth Mile on the dirt in the Claimer for a purse of $12,000.
The Mark Cloutier trained filly Ombre' Rose was well supported at odds of 7-5 as the favourite and again won impressively.
Just like in the race which she won two weeks ago Ombre Rose Rose was first to show under Seecharan by was being pressed by the 2-1 shot Princess Soiree with Timeless Shrug close up in third with Done That contented to observe from the rear. Going to the far turn, Learie Seechran asked his Ombre' Rose to hold her position at the head of affairs as Princess Soiree challenge the lead. It was here that Done That moved aside Timeless Shrug and began to close.
However, with two furlongs to race Ombre Rose and Seecharan quicken up and the filly began to glide away from Princess Soiree as Done That continued to run. A confident Seecharan asked his mount to go win her race with a furlong to race and the Roy and Dixie Jacobson owned filly quickened away from the Princess Soiree and Done That. Inside the final furlong, it was one-way traffic as Ombre' Rose drew five lengths clear of Done That which moved into second ahead of Princess Soiree which was weakening. At the line Ombre' Rose was an impressive winner in the time of 1:46.47. Done That finished second with Princess Soiree for third. Ombre' Rose added to her maiden success in style while giving Learie Seecharan his fourth winner.
Twin-brother Lenny Seecharan who fell two weeks ago, visited the doctor yesterday. He has ridden fifteen winners thus far, will be seeking to improve his record when he rides in three races on Tuesday Night. Learie will also be in action in three events.
The Seecharan's twin brothers Lenny and Learie (Jnr) have both shown good form at Hastings Racecourse and are looking forward to a good racing year.
The twins made their racing debuts together as 19-year-old apprentice jockeys at Santa Rosa Park in Trinidad on March 28, 2015. Lenny made his way to Hastings in 2017 and has returned there every year thereafter with Lenny copping the Apprentice Title in 2019.
