SEA COWS BAY, Tortola, VI – After an 18 months long delay, Horse Races finally returned to the Virgins Islands (VI) in a massive outpouring of support at Ellis Thomas Downs, yesterday, Boxing Day, 2018.

Of the five races, the VI took away two titles, first in race three with ‘Nadiaes Image’ taking the win, then in race 4 with ‘Lunch Break’ running away with the No. 1 spot.

Below are the results for the five races:

Race 1. Gus Is Tuff, 1:34.1
