From USA to Guyana, Curfew Tower is the champion as it won the feature D1 and lower event when the Port Mourant Turf Club in collaboration with The Jumbo Jet successfully staged the Inaugural Guyana Cup Re-match horse race meet. The event was held yesterday at the Port Mourant Turf Club.
A new champ has emerged as Mr. Colin Elcock’s newly imported Curfew Tower out of Kentucky USA made sure that the Inaugural Guyana Cup Re-match joins the Guyana Cup which was won by CP Got Even in the safe keeping of the Elcock Stable.
The animal imported from the USA about six months ago and running as a D3 Class animal with Junior Sookhan on the perch was a class act. In only its second outing it had a good start and put a lock on the field early as it took the lead from Princess She Is Not as the two horses kept a blistering pace early in the race.
Curfew Tower never looked back as Sookhan kept urging it on to the finishing pole as the racehorse won from the fast finishing Treacle. CP Got Even, known for its excellent finish, raced from down the field to take third from Grande De Roja, also a good finisher.
For the win Curfew Tower took home the sumptuous $1.5M and Trophy compliments of Banks DIH Limited.
