THE 13th annual SUPREME VENTURES

2-Y-O SERIES
 

THE 2017 SUPREME VENTURES 2-Y-O SERIES RACEDAY was launched at the Spanish Court Hotel on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.

 

Mr. Spencer Darlington (Master of Ceremonies) gave the welcome, while Mr. Paul Hoo (Chairman, SVL Group) gave the opening remarks. Mr. Anthony Shoucair (Chairman, JRC) spoke on behalf of JRC. Mrs. Simone Clarke-Cooper (AVP, Group Corporate Communication, SVL) offered the event details, while Mr. Denzil Miller Jr. (Racing Secretary, SVREL) offered the racing details).

 

Good morning, Members of the Head Table, representatives from Supreme Ventures Limited, the Racing Fraternity, Distinguished guests, members of the Media, on behalf of the entire Racing Industry, I take with great pleasure the opportunity to welcome you all.

 

The 13th annual Supreme Ventures 2-Y-O Series is set to start on Saturday, October 14, 2017. This unique sponsorship was launched in 2005, and is a result of The Merger of Supreme Ventures Limited, TOBA and SVREL.

 

Supreme Ventures will inject $4.65 million to purses over three (3) race days plus a bonus of $1M to the lucky Owner of the 2-y-o that is capable of winning all three races. The three (3) races have become the most exciting for 2-Y-O on the calendar and have been dubbed the 2-Y-O Triple Crown.

 

This series is the first of its kind in Jamaica, the English Speaking Caribbean and The Northern Hemisphere and will take the form of three (3) Graded Two-Year-Old races. The races have benefited from an increase in the total purse package of $7.5M (2005 & 2006), $8.25M (2007), $9.0M (2008), $11.5M (2009-2016) to $11.85M (2017).

 

In 2013 the Supreme Ventures Limited 2-Y-O Triple series created enormous interest and energy as we welcomed and enjoyed PRINCESS POPSTAR’S breathtaking performances in becoming the first horse to win the series. She set a new Stakes record, equaled one and was a few ticks of a second from equaling the record in the final leg. PRINCESS POPSTAR was eventually voted Horse-of-the-Year, the first 2-y-o to win the title in Jamaica.

 

The races are:

(a)  The 13th running of The Cash Pot “Only One For Me” Trophy (GR. IIIR) over 1200 metres for a purse of $3.25M on Saturday, October 14, 2017.
