[www.inewsguyana.com] – January 19 is the new date set for the Kennard Memorial Turf Club (KMTC) Boxing Day horse race meet, following its postponement.
The date had to be rescheduled on account of the major storms over the Corentyne Coast during the last 36 hours. There will be no changes from the original programme where eight races are billed for the day with over $9 million in prizes.
The feature race will remain over a distance of one mile for $1.5 million with others being the D3 maiden and E Lower for $600,000 over seven furlongs; the Three-old West Indies bred maiden and Guyana bred open for a $600,000 winner’s purse.
The J3 and K, G1 and Lower, Two-year-old Guyana and West Indies bred and J1 and Lower races will run at a distance of six furlongs. The winning purses for those four races are $150,000, $400,000, $400,000 and $200,000 respectively.
The race is being conducted under the rules of the Guyana Horse Racing Authority (GHRA).
