After Chief Justice Ian Chang discharged an injunction filed against the Guyana Cup Fever on Thursday, the meet got the green light and will go ahead today.
In excess of $20M will be up for grabs when the Port Mourant Turf Club in Collaboration with Jumbo Jet Auto Sales presents the Guyana Cup Fever.
Eight races are carded for the event which according to one of the organizers, will be one of the biggest horse racing meets in Port Mourant’s Turf Club history. The sum of $2M will go to the stable owners of the winner of the feature race (C& Lower1500m), the second prize will be $1M while the third prize stable will pocket $500,000.
The seven other races carded are 3 Years West Indies Bred, 4 Years Old for Guyana and West Indies Bred Horses, E 1 & Lower, G3 & Lower, H & Lower, I 2 and Lower and J 2 and Lower.
All races will be run under the rules of the Guyana Horse Racing rules and horses are subject to reclassification pending to the results of any race meeting prior to this meet.
Notes: The injunction was filed by Denis DeRoop, owner of Guyana’s premier thoroughbred, Score’s Even because DeRoop alleged that the organizers were in breach of the rules and regulations of the Guyana Horse Racing Authority. The Simply Royal Stable owner also stated that the organizers were also discriminating against Score’s Even, an ‘A Class’ horse.
The organizers stated that the event did not cater for ‘A Class’ horses since the feature event would be in the C class. Chang ruled in their favour, setting the stage for today’s activities. Turfites get ready.
