Metro Office and Computer Supplies has contributed substantially towards the Kennard Memorial Turf Club Boxing Day Meet which is set for Bush Lot Farm, Corentyne. At a simple ceremony held on Wednesday at their Quamina Street location, the entity handed over $1,875,000
and a trophy.
This sponsorship will go towards the feature one mile race which carries a top purse of $1,000,000; the runner-up in this event will take home $500,000, third place $250,000 and fourth place, $125,000.
Metro’s Chief Executive Officer, Avee Lindie said they are happy to be part of this event once again adding that this is the 13th year the company has supported the meet which has stemmed from a strong family bond with the Kennard’s, and with his father being a former President of the club.
She informed that this donation is coming directly from the company’s President, Ron Ramnarayan who resides in the USA. President of the KMTC Cecil Kennard expressed gratitude to the company for their input.
He said the event is expected to bring out some of the horses such as Don’t Overlook, Lucky Star, Goodwill Boy, TnT, Golden Blue Eco and Just Call Me Boss. The club has been doing a great job over the years to improve the standard of horse racing in Guyana and he reminded that they have put systems in place so that the turfites can be more comfortable on race day.
