The Harold Chadee trained three-year-old chestnut colt Wots To Report turned the feature event for Imported Three-Year-Old and Over Maidens and Horses rated 75-50 going over a distance of 1,750 metres into a romp at Santa Rosa Park, Arima yesterday.

Favourite backers did not have a worry as the 7-5 favourite made it look easy in the hands of Wilbert Leon and in the process buried the legendary Glenn Mendez trained 'Ceasar' which was sent off as the 3-1 third choice.

When the starter sent the field on its way, Fast N Furious was the first to show from Hurricane Harry with Wots To Report pulling his way into third. Caesar Country followed with Hello and Peace N Glory contented to view from the rear.

Going down the back-straight Wilbert Leon aboard the Dave Chadee owned charge allowed the son of Stay Thirsty to/Eyes Open Wide to go into the lead from Hurricane Harry with Caesar Country close up in third and Fast N Furious taken back in fourth.

Going to far turn Leon allowed Wots To Report an inch of rein and he quickly established a four-length lead on Fast N Furious as Caesar Country bade farewell to the leaders as Hurricane Harry began to make up some ground with the Glenn Mohammed trained pair of Hello and Peace N Glory enjoying the view from the rear.

At the top of the straight, Wots To Report quickened away impressively to put the race to bed in a matter of strides, and the race was effectively for second place as Fast N Furious was attempting to outstay Hurricane Harry, and he did in the end.

However, the further they raced the better Wots To Report looked and he landed the event in the time of 1:51.06 coasting to a nine lengths success. Peace N Glory stayed on through tired horses to get fourth.

Harold Chadee and John Leotaud were the day's leading trainers as they both saddled three winners on the nine race card. Chadee saddled Money Matters, Asian Princess and Wots To Report, while Leotaud was successful with Trini Gal, Lord Silver and Jet'aime .

Riding honours for the day were shared between veteran Nobel Abrego and Leon who both of whom rode two winners.
