Rain forces postponement of Triple Crown Series

The muddy Rising Sun Turf Club.

Mother Nature has once again had the final say on the start of the Triple Crown Series.

Scheduled to get off to a flying start yesterday at the Rising Sun Turf Club, organisers of the groundbreaking horse racing event were forced to postpone the first leg indefinitely due to persistent rainfall which left the turf in a muddy state and unfit for racing thoroughbreds.

When contacted yesterday, Chief organizer, Nasrudeen Mohamed Jr. told this publication that a fixed date for the start of the event has not been set as yet but fans will be updated as soon as it’s agreed on.

When the inaugural event does run off, the three highly anticipated contests will be among the most prestigious in horse racing and local sports as a whole, with a combined purse of $20 million.

Originally, the second leg of the highly anticipated series was planned for April 1 at Port Mourant while the finale was scheduled for April 29 back at Rising Sun. Stabroek Sport will keep readers updated as events unfold.
