[www.inewsguyana.com] – Horse Racing action has been bolstered in the ancient county following sponsorship from the Berbice Bridge Company Inc. (BBCI) to the Kennard Memorial Turf Club [KMTC].
The club is set to host their pre-Independence horse-race meet, slated for Sunday at the club’s track at Bush Lot Farm, Corentyne. Organizer of the event and President of the KMTC, Cecil Kennard, received the J3 and Lower event winning purse which us valued at $150,000, at a presentation ceremony recently.
It was held in the company’s head office at Main Street, Georgetown. Kennard dubbed the sponsorship a fine time for the sport from a fine corporate citizen.
“It’s important that we express our gratitude to Berbice Bridge Company for coming on board again, because as we all know, no sporting activity can be successfully promoted without sponsors,” he declared.
“I wish to thank Berbice Bridge Company once again and we are looking forward to their continued support in the future.”
Six races are slated for the day, with the feature event being for horses classed D1 and lower over a distance of 1 mile for a prize of $500,000.
