The Jumbo Jet Racing Stables (JJRS) stampeded away with over $2million in prize money following exciting action at the third and final meet of the Inaugural Triple Crown Horseracing event at the Port Mourant Turf Club in Corentyne, Berbice, on Easter Sunday.
In the feature race of the day, the JJRS finished one-two with USA bred ‘Don’t Over Look’ finishing ahead of Vera’s Finally for the grand cash prize of $1million. Settling Star was third, while TNT finished fourth in the seven and ¾ furlongs feature race.
The Triple Crown race promotion provided a bonus of $500,000 for whichever horse that could have complete three consecutive victories and Valentina; three-year-old Guyana Bred, was the only animal in the running for the bonus, and the mare didn’t disappoint. She won the race comfortably to earn a total of $900,000 for her owners.
