CARMONA—The Manila Cockers Club Inc., the country’s cockfighting industry game changer, recently concluded its 49th 7-Cock Breeders Festival at the Cockers Arena, San Lazaro Leisure Park in Carmona, Cavite March 8, with breeder “Tata Rey” Briones of Spartan Grego Game Farm dominating the competition with his winning entry Greengold RB 1.
Eliminations were held from March 1 to 5, with the pre-finals set from March 6 to 7.
Briones became a member of the MCC in 2016, and is a consistent derby participant fielding at least two entries per event.
A publisher by profession, Briones is a three-time World Slasher Cup Champion, National Cockers Alliance Stagfighter of the Year, Gentlemen Cockers Association of the Philippines Stagfighter of the Year, and three-time Thunderbird Challenge Champion, among others. During the awarding ceremonies, Briones was joined by his farm manager Rod Advincula and the champion’s wife Lulu Briones.
The derby was evenly matched considering that other top-notch breeders such as Teng Rañola, Amado Bagatsing, Tony Espinosa, Atty. Felix Gatchalian, Hector Magpantay, and Gen. Katy Katigbak, were part of the fray.
