Beverage giants Banks DIH Limited and the Trophy Stall are the latest companies to confirm their sponsorship deal with the organizers for the eight annual Guyana Cup Horserace meet slated for the Port Mourant Turf Club tomorrow.
Over 100 horses have taken entry in the nine race $25M event and with all major preparations completed at Port Mourant Turf Club an exhilarating, exciting and action packed day is anticipated.
The best racehorses, outside of Score’s Even which has been debarred, have been assembled for the featured C1 and lower event for the $4M winner’s purse and the Guyana Cup over 1800M.
The question to be answered is who will win the Guyana Cup 2014. An analysis of the horses entered for the feature C1 and lower event will take a few pages. However a quick browse of the runners will show -The field is led by mystery runner and two times defending champion (2013, 2014) Elle’s Vision of the Jagdeo Stable. It will be hard pressed by the inform Treacle of the Dookie Stable with five wins so far for the year and CP Got Even of the Elcock/Poonai stables, which has been in the money in most of the events it has entered and was a convincing winner in its last race meet at the Port Mourant a few weeks ago.
Grande De Roja of the Jumbo Jet stable has won the feature event before and is back after a lengthy rest and along with Red and Lovely of the Night Eyes stables, which recently won a feature event, is also serious contender. Jack Is My Style, of the Jumbo Jet stable has been improving all the time since its arrival a few months ago and could be the horse to beat. Horses like Swing Easy, Run Nana Run
and the newly imported and speedy Church House can do wonders on their day and anything could be expected from Money In Return.
The newly imported Kentucky pair of Perfect Wind Storm of the Jagdeo stable and Princess She Is Not of the Shariff stable, which had a ding dong battle in their only race so far a few weeks ago which was won by the former, pushes the field wide open.
The other events on the day are the 3-year derby for $2M and trophy. The Two year old West Indies Bred event has a staggering $1.5M and trophy. The E class and lower contest will see the winner collecting $800,000 and trophy. The G1 and lower match up has a runaway $600,000 and trophy.
The two year old Guyana event also has a hefty $600,000 and trophy for the winner. The H class winner gets $450,000 and trophy. The ‘I’ class champion collects $350,000 and trophy, while the top performer in the J class gallop takes home $250,000 and trophy.
Apart from the fascinating horseracing action expected to unfold on the track, there will also be added attractions for both adults and kids.
Incentives will also be available for the top Jockey, the runner up, the top stable and champion trainer. There will also be free programmes and parking for vehicles.
