What a race that was, I am eager to go watch it for a 3rd time this morning. Here it the Maiden Cup 2022 again.
Twist of Fate showed us what an athlete he is and destroyed the Gatekeeper who was the hot favourite and most talked horse to win The Maiden Cup 2022. The Gatekeeper won his last 3 outings here in Mauritius and together with Alshibaa were both the direct competitors of Twist of Fate. The two time Maiden winner 2020 / 2021 Alshibaa was no where to be found despite having a dream run in 4th position in the entire 2400m. Unfortunately, he did not produce any acceleration to finish a second to last.
Twist of Fate flew past him in the final straight and took the inside and Jockey Rai Joowaron pushed on to win by one length beating The Gatekeeper. Twist of Fate was hanging second to last and at one point was last in the race that unites the nation. Rai Joowaron known as “l’Enfant Terrible” means “Terrible Child” showed us what he was made of today, a true record man. Despite rumours of Alishaa winning a 3rd title or The Gatekeeper, Rai shared to all his fans that he would win his 4th Maiden Cup, and he did just that. On the last turn in the final straight, all eyes were on the Gatekeeper who had the first run, Alshibaa was loosing ground and could not accelerate. We all witnessed the splendid ride and sharp inside turn of foot of Twist of Fate who gave us an acceleration we never saw before. He kicked on to take the inside run and was no where to be catched again. What a ride, what a horse and what a finish. Huge congratulation to the entire Allet Stable, Mr Allet and Mr Damry the owner of Twist of Fate and to all the stable grooms. And of course the jockey Rai Joowaron who took home his 4th Maiden Cup. The Allet stables did a hat trick yesterday, winning the 1st race with Master of Disguise (4/1), the Maiden Cup Twsite of Fate 3/1) and the 7th Race with Giratorio (10/1). Congrats to their SA stable rider Dennis Swartz who shut all the bad mouths about his riding skills at the Champ De Mars. Keep to up the great work more wins and outsiders ahead of the 16 closing race meetings.
The Champ De Mars once again united close to 100,000 + fans who came to enjoy the race that unites the nation, what a full house it was, all stands was cracking full, the parking. A huge thank you to the Medine Group for their sponsorship. Despite the attempt to sabotage this weekend racing where Friday evening the field was mined with nails, sharp wires and metal traps by two individuals. We hope this animal and jockey killer(s) will be found and who ever paid these criminals to do this attempt murder will be caught as well. Many expressed their thoughts and opinions against the PTP main guy to have done this. Who ever did this and it was behind this should all get arrested and given a pre-mediated murder sentence. You have no respect for animals and humans life and no respect for this sport. Go to hell.
