Preparations have almost been completed for this weekend’s Sprint Classic Horserace meet sponsored by the Nand Persaud Group of Companies through its Sky Plus promotion Group.
The event is set for this Sunday December 10th at the Company’s racing facilities, No36 Village, Macedonia Estate, Corentyne, Berbice.
Dubbed the ‘Nand Persaud Karibee Rice Sprint Classic’, the event has been whipping up much interest. The animals are required to run in a straight line instead of around the track. It is the only venue that races of such sort is done in Guyana.
In an effort to get the facilities in tip top shape the organisers have been doing much needed sprucing up work at the venue. All areas are being given a face lift with the track, rails, paddocks and stables among the areas being given attention.
Seven races are listed on the cards with over $4M in cash, trophies and other incentives up for the taking.
Meanwhile, Demerara Shipping Company has joined the list of sponsors, which includes Trophy Stall, Ansa McAl Stag Beer, 4R Bearings and Dalip Trading among others.
Over 45 horses have been entered for the days meet.
The feature D and lower event is turning out to be a scorcher with a top class filed entered to compete. The list reads Honey Flow, Storm Bird, Brave Sky, Wild Excitement, Golden Blue Echo, Release The Beast, Appealing Harvest, Witchy Poo, T and T and Honey Penny will all battle for the $400,000 and trophy over 880 yards.
The other events on the days card are for animals classified H and lower for a top prize of $260,000 and trophy also over 880yards.
There is an event for J class animals over 660 yards for a $200,000 winner’s purse and trophy.
