Thousands of Barbadians and visitors alike converged on the Garrison Savannah yesterday to witness the 27th running of the prestigious Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup. Twelve outstanding thoroughbreds, six from Barbados, four from Martinique, and one each from France and Trinidad and Tobago, faced starter Mark Batson in the 1 800 metres event, all going after Gold Cup glory.

And when it was all finished Andy Ward aboard Lord Michael Taylor/Clifton Racing's Pure Temptation came out best in a driving finish as they edged out the second placed John Brian (Rickey Walcott) (right), and the third placed Apostle (Anderson Trotman) on the rail.
