98th Jamaica St Leger pushed back to Sunday

The second classic of the local racing season, the 98th running of the $4.5 million Jamaica St Leger over 10 furlongs at Caymanas Park, has been pushed back by a day.

It's understood that the change was effected to allow for a few minor issues to be sorted out in time, following the passage of Hurricane Beryl on Wednesday along the island's south coast.

The race which had originally been set for Saturday, will now be contested as the final event on Sunday's 10-race card.

It's understood that only a few rails were dislodged during the passage of Hurricane Beryl, but these have been repaired. The facility experienced no flooding and the track is said to be in excellent condition.

11 runners are listed to face the starter in the Jamaica St Leger. Meanwhile, the meet originally slated for Sunday has been rescheduled for Monday.
