Following her mishap in the Diamond Mile two weeks ago, reigning horse of the year She's A Maneater returned to winning ways at Caymanas Park on Saturday. Running as the 3-5 favourite, the 4 year old bay filly squeezed out a narrow come-from-behind victory in the 3 year old and up Graded Stakes contest over 5-and-a-half furlongs.
She's A Maneater who was ridden by customary jockey Omar Walker, won by a neck in a time of 1 minute, 5-and-one-fifth of a second to close out a double for reigning champion trainer Wayne DaCosta on the 11-race card. The double enabled DaCosta to cut Anthony "Baba" Nunes' lead in the trainer's championship by $809,000 with Nunes who had one winner on the day, now leading by $114,000 in stakes earnings with three racedays to go on the 2018 calendar.
Dick Cardenas had one win to move his tally to 84, 9 behind leading rider Anthony Thomas who went winless. Outgoing champion Omar Walker had a double.
