The Preparation

The Sandy Lane Gold Cup day draws closer, and thousands are expected to converge on the Garrison. But in fact, the venue has been abuzz all week. Railbirds have been there as early as 5 a.m. every morning this week to see the Gold Cup horses go through their paces.

Here, Barbadian jockey Slade Callaghan takes Canadian contender, and one of the pre-race favourites, Moonshine Hall, down the straight during an exercise gallop early in the week. Moonshine Hall will be ridden by Patrick Husbands tomorrow.
