Burger King to honour racing legends at the Park
Several local racing legends will be honoured at Caymanas Park tomorrow.
Head of sales and marketing at Burger King Sabrena McDonald Radcliffe announced at a recent press launch that during the 39th staging of the Superstakes, her company will also honour horse racing legends who have achieved major firsts locally. She said this was a continuation of the brand's tradition of honouring various individuals who have contributed to the development of the sport in Jamaica.
"We're looking at the first owner and breeder of a Jamaican horse to win an international title, we're celebrating the owner with the most titles and the most wins in any given season, among other milestones. This is about recognising those awesome moments that have excited and thrilled horse racing fans over the years," McDonald Radcliffe said.
Honourees will include:
1. Joseph 'Fudgie' Duany, owner/breeder of the horse Miracle Man - the first Jamaican hose to win a Caribbean Classic race in the Confraternity Classic in Puerto Rico.
2. Winston Griffiths, OD, and Phillip Feanny, OD, who swept all five classics in 1992 with Classique and Milligram.
3. Winston 'Fanna' Griffiths OD, first jockey to ride 1000 winners.
4. Kenroy Leiba, who won a race at odds 891-1.
5. Richard Azan, who has the most owners' titles.
6. George HoSang, OD, who for over two decades had the most wins in a season at Caymanas Park.
7. Wayne DaCosta, OD, who also has the most wins in a season.
