The Jumbo Jet Thoroughbred Racing Committee (JJTRC) will complete the first Triple Crown horseracing event to be contested in Guyana this Easter Sunday at the Port Mourant Turf Club in Corentyne, Berbice, where turfites will witness keen action among the horses and jockeys from Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, the USA and Jamaica.
A rematch between Lucky Star that won the second leg’s feature race, and Vera’s Finally of the Jumbo Jet Racing Stables, will headline the feature race that will be ran over seven and ¾ furlongs.
Yesterday, Chairman of the Organising Committee of the Triple Crown, Nasrudeen Mohamed Jr., revealed exciting news of the completion of a shoot to start the one-mile race, a project that cost in excess of $500,000, according to his estimates.
He had noted before the project’s completion the importance of it, “The horses will have a level and exact one mile start. The start of the seven & 3/4 furlongs race was usually used for the one-miler before due to the fact the mile was on the turn and a race shouldn’t start on a turn.”
The feature race will attract a total prize purse amounting to almost $2million with the winner of that C Class and lower race pocketing $1million.
The winner of the three-year-old Guyana bred race will pocket $400,000, the F Class winner; $350,000, H Class; $300,000, I Class; $250,000, J class; $230,000, K Class; $220,000, L Class; $200,000, L Class and lower; $140,000.
