Two employees of the Caymanas Track Limited (CTL) were questioned by the St Catherine South police yesterday evening on what the lawmen described as "reasonable suspicion" of staging Saturday night's $7-million robbery at Caymanas Park racetrack.

According to reports, after 8pm on Saturday night, two men held up two CTL employees at knife and gunpoint in the cash-processing room before making off with the loot.

The last attempt to rob Caymanas Park was on April 30, 1978, resulting in the death of notorious gangster Dennis 'Copper' Barth of the Hot Steppers gang from east Kingston.

Caymanas Park has been in the news since Friday when trainer Tony Kirlew was shot and killed near his barn in the stable area, which was stripped of its security detail earlier this year due to financial constraints.
