Nasrudeen Mohamed Jr. (Jumbo Jet Jr) will be bidding three of his thoroughbreds goodbye following the Race of Champions on December 3 at the Rising Sun Turf Club, but he hopes they all go out with a bang.
According to Mohamed, race horses ‘Go to Go’, ‘Appealing Harvest and ‘Jackin My Style will be sent off to neighboring Suriname in an effort to help to raise the profile of the ‘Sport of Kings’ in the Dutch speaking territory.
Mohamed stated that he has never given any of his legends like Got To Go away but because of the love the sport but said that he wants to help Suriname to grow its thoroughbred racing like what he is currently doing in Guyana.
“I know its three great horses coming out from my stable, but I need to focus on the main goal and promote horse racing for it to grow like other countries like in Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados. My dream is to stop the cowboy racing and to have thoroughbred racing once and for all in Guyana.”
Mohamed added:“I don’t get much support from the other tracks since everyone do as they please but I know that I will get it done as the largest promoter in Guyana. Many think of themselves, but I look at the horse owners, jockeys and grooms and do things to benefit them in the future. I know next year will be a great year of racing as many horses will be coming to Guyana to compete.”
Go to Go, a Jamaican filly who set strides in Guyana for the years she was here, ran against all the champions and she is still up and running, putting some great champions off the track like ‘Scores Even’ and many more. “She’s a small horse with a big heart,” said Mohamed, who added that he is looking forward to a final win from her before sending her off to Suriname. Got to Go will be running in the G-Class and Lower event.
Known for pace and power, many refer to this Jamaican filly as a “Land Plane” setting some great times throughout the Ancient County. The horse was not favored for distances but definitely a horse of lots of early speed said Mohamed. He also stated that he thinks this will be the better horse in Suriname of the three which will be departing, due to the small tracks that are there.
‘Jackin My Style’
Known as the wicked Yankee grey. The horse performed well throughout the years. Running the most seconds in Guyana with zero wins. Many say he is just wicked and did not want to win. Some say the trainers can’t get him fit enough and some say the jockeys can’t ride him. Mohamed said he is hoping for a miracle win on December 3 and also hopes that the Suriname trainers figure something out with him that the Jumbo Jet Stable could not.
