Trainer Neil Cochrane and the Chief Rocker Stables are confident ahead of Sunday’s Sir Cuthwin Lake Super Sprint, the second instalment of the Antigua Triple Crown Series, slated for Sunday at the Cassada Gardens Race Track.
Thoroughbred, First Lady, who captured the opening Black Pineapple Stakes held April 30, is the only horse capable of winning the coveted Triple Crown title.
According to Cochrane, who is also President of the Antigua Turf Club, the animal is in tip-top shape.
“She did her final workout this morning and we are very pleased and satisfied with where she is at. We think that she is in a very good nick, she is fresh and she is strong so we are looking forward to, once again, remain champions for this leg of the Triple Crown,” he said. 
Six races are carded for Sunday’s meet and according to Cochrane, conditions at the track are ideal for racing.
“I looked at the track condition this morning [Friday] and in watching the horses workout, the track is good and I am going to tell you that right now it is not fast, it is good, so in the next two days once there is no significant amount of rain and the sun continues to penetrate and we continue to rake it and bring up the moisture out of it, it is going to get faster and faster so by Monday, we may have a record breaking track,” he said.
Cochrane said also, a number of soca acts and other entertainers will make presentations during Sunday’s event.
