With race day less than two weeks away, the word is that most of the big stables will be participating with multiple entries.
The event is organized by the Jumbo Jet Auto Sales and Racing stable in collaboration with the Rising Sun Turf Club and is slated for Sunday 1st January 2017 at the Rising Sun Turf Club, Arima Park, West Coast, Berbice.
Meanwhile, with both the Jumbo Jet and Shariff Stables expected to top the entry list with over 10 horses each, entries are expected to top the 80 mark with other stables such as Elcock, Jagdeo, Rising Sun, Singh, Bacchus, and Crawford Bactowar among others expected to enter multiple entries.
With seven races listed on the days programme and over $7 M up for grabs, horse owners are making sure that their horses are in the best of shape and are taking no chances as they vie for the lucrative prizes on offer.
The feature B and lower event is expected to be a scorcher and with most of the top horses in the country expected to feature. A whopping $1.2M and trophy is available for the winner over 1800M. Horses such as CP Got Even, Score Even, Just Call Me Boss, Princess She is not, Spit Fire, Jack in My Style, Golden Blue Ecko, King’s Knight, Lady Budapest and Light Up Canada among others will be in the running for the top prize.
