Gleaner tipster Orville ‘Clarkie’ Clarke has swept both sections of the Caymanas Track Limited (CTL) tipsters’ competition’s first bi-monthly race for 2016.
Spotting five winners on the final raceday last Saturday, ‘Clarkie’ moved away from closest rival Jimmie of the Star to beast him by four winners (46 to 42) to secure the $20,000 prize. And the veteran tipster, who was champion in 2014, also captured the wagering section with a healthy plus $1,093.24, clear of IRIE FM represented by last year’s champion tipster Howard Abrahams.
As a result, Clarkie picked up another $20,000 for a grand total of $40,000 donated by the promoting company.
He leads the competition with 46 wins, ahead of Jimmie (42), Howard Abrahams and Cable Sport Network (Francisco ‘Linky’ Mills) jointly in third on 41 wins each.
