Tight racing out there today, racers. Well Done!

There’s going to be plenty to talk about in the tent at the Mount Gay party tonight. Photo finishes happened all over the racecourse during today’s action.

While some racers struggled to hold their podium position with big pressure from climbers, others all but closed out any possibility of being bested.

Congratulations to all you movers and shakers. See you under the tent at 1800.
