The Four Horsemen promotion group says that they will be forging ahead with plans to host their one day Emancipation Horse Race meet on August 1st. This is despite another club releasing a programme for around the same time.
According to Four Horsemen Promotion Group, it was decided at a meeting held by the Guyana Horse Racing Authority (GHRA) a little while back that the clubs will return to their traditional dates in hosting meetings.
According to records, the Port Mourant Turf Club (PMTC) has a traditional date on August 1st while the Rising Sun Turf Club and the Kennard Memorial Turf Club have traditional race dates for later in the month. Other groups and organisations will also seek dates in between.
In light of the decisions made earlier by the GHRA, which has not been changed, the group has decided to forge ahead with plans for their emancipation meet.
According to a release from that meeting, which was held at the Rising Sun Turf Club, it was agreed that race clubs will set their own respective dates only notifying GHRA of the intended race date. In the event two Clubs submit the same date, consideration will be given to the Club with the traditional date, moving away from the previous arrangement where the GHRA and the clubs would sit at a meeting at the start of the year and decide on dates for the clubs.
The four horsemen promotion group is continuing its call to the Government to make a priority in passing the necessary horseracing legislation which will make the hosting of the activity easier.
