Conquest Bespoke confidently ridden by Prayven Badrie showed his undoubted class, as he ran away impressively with the feature event over 1,600 metres on the good turf track and Santa Rosa Park, yesterday.

The Harriram Gobin trained/Shivam Maharaj owned six-year-old gelding capped off a good day for the owner/trainer/jockey combination as they won three events on the Arima Race Club eight-race card.

Trainer Harriram Gobin who everyone knew held the keys to the feature event looked on as his 7/2 shot Conquest Bespoke pulled away from the 6/5 favourite Stockyard to give the owner trainer combination a one-two finish in the event.

Punters made Stockyard the favourite to win but the top-weight shrugged off his burden to score in style by 4 3/4 lengths with Stockyard holding off the challenge of the lightly weighted Trini Navigator for second spot.

The writing was on the wall from a long way out and no horse had an answer to the powerful surge of Conquest Bespoke and he looks like a horse that could go close in the major events this year.

Conquest Bespoke recorded the time of 1:39.87 for the trip.

The day's winning trio had the pleasure of stopping the hitherto unbeaten three-year-old GeneralJN in the fourth event of the card with the USA Bred three-year-old newcomer Nuclear Power which power impressively to victory in a time of 1:52.37. Second went ot another American bred three year-old Wots To Report.

Racing takes a break as T&T goes in full Carnival Mode.
