Over 80 entered and $10M up for grabs
The day has arrived and all systems are in place for the event of the Easter season and despite
the pack weekend of activities the place to be is the Rising Sun Turf Club, Arima Park, West Coast, Berbice. All roads are expected to lead to the popular venue for the red hot Guyana Cup Fever horserace extravaganza in collaboration with the Jumbo Jet Auto Sales and Racing stables.
The seven race meet has a sumptuous $10M in cash, trophies and other incentives, up for the taking. The arena is expected to be jam-packed as thousands including many home for the Easter Holidays are expected to fill the venue.
Over 80 of the country’s top horses have taken entry and the question being asked is who will win the battle of Rising Sun. The track is in good condition and some fast times are expected to be recorded in the grand showdown.
The feature A and lower special is the talk of the day with a whopping $1.2M and trophy up for grabs. The caliber of horses lined up is hair-raising and to pick a winner would be a difficult task. C.P Got Even is always in the money and is in top form. A long rest will definitely do the animal the world of good. It will definitely be out to avenge it loss to Just Call Me Bass. CP prefers the longer distance, but has shown before that it can adapt to the shorter distance. Just call Me Bass has proven that it is a force to be reckoned with. It is being call the undisputed champion at RSTC with four consecutive wins to its name. The horse seems to like the left hand track. It has speed and has shown that it can also finish.
Stalemates Spit Fire and Plum Plum have both been in good form recently. Both are
good pedigree horses, and are capable of going out early and running from down the pack. Their owners will be looking for a one two from them today. All eyes will be on the new sensation Golden Blue Echo. The racehorse has been burning up the track at practice over the past week and will be looking to continue on its winning ways. The animal is fast and will be expected to go out early alongside the speedsters. As it showed in its only meet Golden Blue Echo can also finish and the likes of C.P Got Even, will have to be at their best.
According to owner trainer Mohin Persaud the animal also likes the left hand track while it can go out early or run from the back and still win convincingly. He is assuring that all will be roasted at the end of the day. America Boss has settled in and is expected to give a good account of itself, if not go all the way. The newly imported King’s Knight and Climate Change of the Jumbo Jet Stable and Because I Say So of the Elcock Stable have all come to Guyana with a lot of characteristics. To analyze them would take the rest of this page. The owners are urging all to come out for a grand time and see the spectacle that will unfold.
