Racing Resumes at Beaumont Park

The first race is scheduled for 3:00pm on Sunday 24th April, 2011.

The organizers have indicated that the main prize will be EC$10,000, in what is being dubbed, the Digicel Cup.

An added feature to the weekend of races will be the Jockey Challenge Series”. This is a challenge for those jockeys participating in the first five events and is not to be construed as a country-to-country match-up. The riders participating will include J’son Liburd of St.Kitts & Nevis, Jeff Jacobs of Antigua, Laird Bailey of Jamaica, Michael Semple of Guyana, as well as Cristian Soto and Jose “Chiqui” Santiago, both from Puerto Rico.

The challenge works by awarding each jockey points based on their mount’s finishes. There will be six horses scheduled to run in each of the first five races. The winning jockey of each designated race will get six (6) points, five (5) for second, four (4) for third, three (3) for fourth, two (2) for fifth, and one (1) for sixth. The jockey with the highest total of points after the first five races will receive a prize of $1,000.00 ECD.

Gates open at 1:00pm.
