Guyana Horse Racing Authority continues its drive to regularize the sport
The Guyana Horse Racing Authority (GHRA) in its continued effort to streamline the sport in Guyana is continuing to put in place a number of new initiatives to bring it in line.
One such initiative it’s the registration of all two year old horses in Guyana and the classification of horses in Guyana for the second half of the horseracing season. As such a team from the GHRA will be visiting several race tracks across the country over the coming weekend to register all two (2) year old horses in Guyana at the moment.
The schedule is as follows:- On Saturday 13th July 2013 the team will be at the Port Mourant race track from 13:00hrs and the Kennard’s Memorial Turf Club at from 15:00hrs.
On Sunday 14th July 2013 the team will visit the Norman Singh’s Memorial Turf Club from 09:00hrs, while they will move over to the Rising Sun Turf Club from 11:00 hrs.
The GHRA in a release stated that it looks forward to the cooperation of horse owners and trainers in ensuring that their horses are present at the various locations on the dates and times mentioned above.
Should any horse owner or trainer fail to have his horse registered, that horse will not be allowed to participate in any race meet organised and run under the auspices of the GHRA.
According to President of the GHRA, retired Chancellor Cecil Kennard, the GHRA is hoping for the full cooperation of all in trying to move the sport forward.
Meanwhile, the GHRA has established a Secretarial Unit at the Kennard’s Memorial Turf Club, Bush Lot, Corentyne.
An Assistant Secretary is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 08:00hrs to 12:00hrs to assist anyone who wishes to obtain any information concerning classification and registration of horses and any other related matter.
Contact can also be made on telephone number 331 – 0693 for further information. (Samuel Whyte)
