According to Compton Sancho, apart from the feature G class event, the 3 years and I class races are expected to produce fireworks when the Rising Sun Turf Club in collaboration with the Guyana Association of Women’s Police host a grand one day horserace meet on June 25 at the Rising Sun West Coast, Berbice track.
Six races are carded for the day and over three million dollars in cash and trophies will be up for the taking.
The entries have been growing with over 45 horses being registered up to last week.
