Ready to Romance and Party Time expected to rock the house
The battles promise to be exciting when the Jumbo Jet Thoroughbred Committee stages its first Triple Crown horseracing championships which will see over $20million in cash prizes up for grabs in the three-day event.
The “Triple Crown” championship, which is the first of its kind in Guyana, will be competed on three separate race days at two different venues. The first race day is slated for February 18th at the Rising Sun Turf Club followed by the second race day on March 4th at the same Arima Park, West Coast Berbice, racetrack, while the third and final showdown will be on Easter Sunday at the Port Mourant Turf Club in Corentyne Berbice.
One horse that fans ought to take note of is Ready to Romance, which is Owned by Kris Jagdeo,
Trained by Tribuwan ‘Turbo’ Jagdeo and ridden by Jockey Paul Delph. This racehorse has been always knocking at the door and won his last start on January 28th at Rising Sun. It is expected to win again on February 18, 2018 at Rising Sun which will be the first race for the mega triple crown. Ready to Romance will be running in the J and lower event. Trainer T. Jagdeo mentioned that his horse is one of the best locally bred horses here and he always knew his horse’s potential. The horse lost a few races before but that was early in his career, now he is fully matured.
“The racehorse always goes a bit wide on the turns and at Rising Sun, as everyone may know, but it is now handling the turn much better as he is maturing,” Jagdeo noted. He said he is very excited and congratulates the Jumbo Jet Thoroughbred Racing Committee for hosting the first ever triple crown event in Guyana. Jagdeo is also very confident that his horse will win all 3 events and win the mega bonus up for grabs as well.
Promoter Nazruddin Mohamed Jr. noted that this is the event for every horse, trainer, groom, and owner to prove their ability. “You may have the best horse to win the first event, but may or may not have the ability to maintain for the final two legs. Having a thoroughbred to perform its best comes from the team around him/her which includes the owner, groom, trainer and jockey’s hard effort they put into the animals, weeks before the event. I believe the fittest will survive as the bread crumbs will fall off from some of the thoroughbreds coming to the final leg at Port Mourant Turf club,” Mohamed Jr. stated.
While, Ready to Romance is one to beat, Party Time is another racehorse with the tools to come out on top. This horse won the feature event in the last meet staged, collecting the $1M prize for Guyana bred horses. Party Time is owned by Jason DeMatos. While Mr. Jagdeo has expressed confidence in Ready to Romance, he’s got to look out; Party Time is on the prowl. Owner Jason DeMatos said his horse is going smooth as well and is also looking to claim his crown for winning the 3 upcoming events.
Will any of these two horses win or will some other contender sneak in and take the prize? All will unfold in a few weeks and fans will not want to miss these three days of top class horseracing.
