Banks DIH at Triple Crown starting gate
Banks DIH Limited continues its support for the development of horse racing in Guyana by sponsoring the 2019 Triple Crown Horse Race series, organised by Jumbo Jet Thoroughbred Racing Committee.
Banks DIH Limited, through its internationally acclaimed Banks Beer, will be one of the major sponsors of the programme.
The announcement was made during a simple ceremony hosted at Thirst Park where the sponsorship package including a cheque and the winner’s trophy were presented to Coordinator Nasrudeen Mohamed of Jumbo Jet Auto Sales and Jumbo Jet Thoroughbred Racing by Banks DIH Limited’s representative Shenisa Fredericks.
The first leg of the Triple crown is for this Sunday at the Rising Sun Turf Club, West Coast Berbice, starting at noon where most of the country’s leading horses will be vying for the top prize.
The second leg will take place on March 24 at Port Mourant Turf Club on the Corentyne, while the final leg will take place on April 21 at the same venue.
The first Triple Crown was officially launched last year, but was restricted to one event due to the inclement weather.
