Over $8M up for grabs y Samuel Whyte
The final race for the 2014 horse racing season is set for the Rising Sun Turf Club, Arima Park, West Coast, Berbice.
The date is Thursday 1st January 2015, tomorrow. With horseracing having a busy year in 2014, all the top horses will be hoping to put in a good showing to end the season with a bang.
Seven races are carded for the day with close to $8M in cash, trophies and other incentives up for the taking.
Preparation works have been completed at the venue. Sprucing up work was done on both the grand stand and the other stand.
The toilet facilities were also given a face lift and the track is in the best of conditions.
The list of sponsors is led by Beverage Giants Banks DIH Limited, Trophy Stall Bourda Market, Inshan Bacchus Trucking Service, Shariff Business Enterprise and Racing Stable, Poonai’s Pharmacy, Chester Fry of Bush Lot West Coast Berbice, Hablaw Meat Centre and Businessman Rohan Oudit.
The feature event on the programme is the D class race, while there is an event for Three year old Guyana and West Indies bred and E class horses, one for G1and lower horses and another for two year old Guyana and West Indies animals.
The feature B class event will once again see the top runners battle for championship honours with prize monies tagged at close to $3M with a first prize of $1M and the Banks DIH Trophy over one mile. All the top runners in Guyana have been lined up to take part with Guyana Cup Champion CP Got Even, expected to get stiff competition from the inform Treacle, Guyana Cup Rematch champion Curfew Tower, Princess She Not, Grande De Roja, Run Nana Run, Jack Is My Style, Rock Movie Star and the newly imported Tis a Holiday from The Elcock stable.
With the much talked about three year old event for horses bred and Born in Guyana and the West Indies now being combined with the E and Lower, another exciting contest is promised.
Any one of the horses can run away with victory for the $500,000 winner’s money and trophy.
With the likes of Spit Fire, Just call Me Boss, Unsettled, Releases the Beast, Swing Easy, Settle In Seattle, Rosetta and It’s My Turn in one event it definitely promises to be a cliff hanger.
The G1 and lower showdown has the likes of Appealing Harvest, Cassie and Damascus Dream set to go over 5 furlongs.
There is an event for G3 maiden and H and lower winners which is expected to see the continued battle between Easy To Win and Mary Ann, but they will have to first get past horses such as Red Cloud, Super Bowl, Sent From Above in the 5 furlongs event.
The race for two year Guyana and the West Indies bred horses will see horses including Its My Choice, Midnight Blue, Lock Song, Miss Lova Lova, Atlantic Storm, Settling Star and Shooting Star competing over 6 furlongs.
