Twenty-four-year-old T&T apprentice jockey Lenny Seecharan will make his first appearance at the famous Woodbine Park Racecourse tomorrow in Toronto, Canada when he rides on a card, which see former Caribbean Champions Emile Ramsammy and Patrick Husbands in competition.
Seecharan for the past two years has won the Hastings Racecourse Champion Apprentice title. Last year, he rode 18 winners and was nominated for the "Apprentice of the Year" award at the Jockey Club Of Canada - Sovereign Awards which was held at the Chateau Le Jardin in Woodbridge, Ontario.
Only last week, Seecharan landed the Ed Clagett-owned three-year old Torino Grand at odds of 18-1 in an upset win over 6 1/2 furlongs at the Hastings Racecourse track in Vancouver on Thursday.
He will now have the opportunity to ride with the best of Canada at Woodbine on Friday.
Seecharan will ride Sumerian Belle in the fifth event, a claiming race for horses tagged at $20,000 - $19,000 over 5 1/2 furlongs. He will be riding for trainer Harry Ladouceur. The post time for the event is 3.29 pm.
Many were happy with his ride on Torino Grand and after his skilful handling where he raced Torino Grand several lengths off the leaders and produced him in the final 100 metres where he nailed The Chances R by a neck on the line, with his stablemate Bluegrass Angus hanging on for third.
All things being equal, he will possibly have another ride on Sunday at Woodbine.
