Racing fans are in for a treat this Sunday as some of the top gallopers in the land slug it out for the P2M Philracom Chairman's Cup at the Metro Manila Turf Club in Malvar, Batangas with a distance of 1800m.
Spearheaded by rivals Super Swerte, recently crowned Commissioners' Cup champ, and 2020 Presidential Gold Cup winner Pangalusian Island, this promises to be one of the most anticipated events of the year.
Joining the fray are two-time Sampaguita Stakes winner Princess Eowyn, recent Road to the Chairman's Cup winner Sky Shot, Heneral Kalentong, the ever-dangerous Boss Emong who claims home court advantage and a slew of other contenders.
"Malaki panalo ng kabayo ko na si Boss Emong, si Super Swerte naka-kondisyon at sya yung mahigpit ng kalaban” said horseowner Edong Diokno
"Pangalusian Island is always ready for the challenge as proven in the last Commissioner’s Cup. The only things different will be the pace of the race and the distance,’’ said horseowner Wilbert Tan.
Super Swerte (Art Moderne out of Faster Tapper), who avenged his runner-up finish to Pangalusian Island during their last encounter for the Commissioners' Cup plum, will be out to prove that he could win at the Malvar, Batangas racetrack too as this is his first outing there.
Super Swerte will test its luck against Boss Emong and the other contenders in the Chairman’s Cup organized in honor of the late Philracom Chairman Andrew Sanchez and for the benefit of disabled trainers and jockeys in the horse-racing industry.
