The Jumbo Jet Thoroughbred Racing Committee (JJTRC) Triple Crown series will be full of horse power, even for the fans….literally.
According to chief organizer of the event, Nasrudeen Mohamed Jr. one lucky turfite with a raffle ticket will have a chance to drive off with the grand prize of a Nissan Tiida Sedan. A 125cc motorcycle along with cellphones, a smart TV, a refrigerator and a microwave will also be up for grabs.
Said Mohamed Jr. yesterday “We believe in giving back to the supporters. So the committee will be changing it up for the Triple Crown. We will be doing a major raffle in where anyone has the chance to win a Nissan car.”
Tickets and raffles can be bought at several locations countrywide.
With 21 races, three race days and 20 million dollars on the line, horse racing in the 592 will be taken to new heights.
The first of the three events is slated for February 18 at the Rising Sun Turf Club. The second leg will be staged on March 2 at the same venue, while the finale will run off on Easter Sunday (April 1) at the Port Mourant Turf Club. On the racing days, the C Class, 1200m event with a bounty of $1M will be the main attraction.
