Double Crown upstages Another Affair in Overnight Allowance contest

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Spencer Darlington

The Ian Parsard-trained 6-5 favourite Double Crown got the better of 2020 classic rival Another Affair as both took on older horses for the first time on Saturday's 10 race card at Caymanas Park. The Overnight Allowance contestants journeyed over 8-and-a-half furlongs. 

Double Crown clocked 1 minute, 45.3, coming home three-and-a-quarter lengths clear of Another Affair.

Meanwhile, the oldest runner in the line-up, Royal Vibes with provisional joint champion jockey Dane Nelson, prevailed in the Mortimer "Morty" Heron Memorial Cup for $750,000- 700,000 claiming contest for 3 year olds and up over 1400 metres or 7 furlongs.

Royal Vibes closed out a natural hattrick for Nelson who had earlier won aboard Star Lee and Princess Lauren in races 5 and 6 respectively.

No trainer had more than one win on the programme. Racing continues next Saturday.
