Ansa McAl’s Beverage Marketing Manager, Robert Hiscock, also expressed his excitement about the club’s upcoming meet stating that “We at Ansa McAl see sport as crucial to developing our local communities. Horseracing is no different, and it is because of that, that we are happy to be on board with Stag as a sponsor of this event. We anticipate a great turnout as horseracing is incredibly popular in this part of Guyana.”
The day’s event is being run under the rules of the Kennard’s Memorial Turf Club and if for any reason there are less than five horses entered for an event, the club reserves the right to not run the race.
According to the organizers, five horses have to run for there to be a third place prize, while seven are needed for a fourth place prize. If only four horses run, then the winning prizes will be reduced by 25% while if there are only three starters then the reduction will be 40%.
