THE JAMAICA OAKS RACEDAY
 

 

THE 2017 JAMAICA OAKS RACEDAY was launched on the lawns of Caymanas Park on Thursday, April 20, 2017.

Mrs. Simone Clarke Cooper (AVP, Group Corporate Communication, SVREL) gave the welcome and offered the closing remarks. Mr. David Reid (Business Development Manager, Grace Foods & Services) spoke on behalf of the sponsor CARIBBEAN CHOICE while Mr. Denzil Miller Jr. (Racing Secretary, SVREL) offered the racing details and Mr. Brando Hayden (C0O, SVREL) gave the promoter’s remarks.

 

THE 2017 JAMAICA OAKS RACEDAY will take centre stage at Caymanas Park on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

 

The 78th running of The Jamaica Oaks (GR.IR) boasts a total purse of $3M, inclusive of $1,300,000 donated by the sponsor CARIBBEAN CHOICE. The race is for Native-Bred 3-Y-O Fillies, and they will compete over 2000 Metres while carrying 57kg (126lbs).

 

The Jamaica Oaks (GR.IR) as is customary, will be run in honour of Mrs. Hilma Veira, former General Manager of the Jamaica Racing Commission and Hall of Famer, who dedicated her talents and skills to the Sport of Kings for more than a quarter of a century.

 

After the season’s first classic on April 8, it is back to the drawing board for some, and high hopes for others. The race is expected to be filled with intrigue for racing fans as strong competition between the nation’s top Native-Bred 3-Y-O fillies is expected, as they will venture over 2000M for the first time in the 78th running of the JAMAICA OAKS.

 

The outstanding filly and Triple Crown contender SHE’SAMANEATER will sport the red and white colours of her Owner Mr. Winston Kong. Her Trainer Mr. Wayne DaCosta O.D. has reported that she has recuperated and continues to train well, after her commanding victory in the 1000 Guineas (GR.IR) in a time of 1:39:0 behind creditable splits of 23.4x47.0x1:12:0.
