Philip Feanny saddled two winners on Saturday’s 10-race card at Caymanas Park including featherweight EXCESSIVE FORCE in the Viceroy Trophy at a mile, completing the stable exacta with I’VE GOT MAGIC.
The Feanny stablemates ran topweight FURTHER AND BEYOND off his legs when the 3-5 favourite tried to attack the foreigners approaching the half-mile marker.
Allowing I’VE GOT MAGIC 16lb and EXCESSIVE FORCE 21lb, FURTHER AND BEYOND failed to reproduce the kick he had used to blow away both Feanny runners at six and a half furlongs three weeks ago in the Saint Cecelia Cup.
FURTHER AND BEYOND straightened three wide, two lengths off I’VE GOT MAGIC marginally ahead of EXCESSIVE FORCE, who soon quickened along the rail to grab the lead.
EXCESSIVE FORCE, carrying 105lb, pulled off with Jordon Barrett to leave I’VE GOT MAGIC chasing, FURTHER AND BEYOND weakening and CALCULUS making a bid on his outside.
EXCESSIVE FORCE drew off to win in 1:37.3, beating his stablemate, who held off CALCULUS for third while FURTHER AND BEYOND faded.
EXCESSIVE FORCE completed a two-timer for Feanny whose TAURUS BOY recovered from a bumpy start with Omar Walker to land the fifth event at five furlongs straight in 57.4.
