THE Philippine Racing Commission (PHILRACOM) is excited to announce the upcoming 2nd Leg Triple Crown Stakes Race, scheduled at the Metro Manila Turf Club, Inc. (MMTCI) in Malvar, Batangas.

PHILRACOM Chairman Reli de Leon said the prestigious event promises an adrenaline-pumping experience over a distance of 1,800 meters, where nine elite horses will compete for a total guaranteed prize of P2,500,000, along with a breeders’ purse of P250,000.

The race course will witness top favorites like Ghost of SC Stockfarm (ridden by JA Guce), Bea Bell (owned by Elmer De Leon and ridden by JB Hernandez), and Batang Manda (owned by Sec. Benjamin Abalos Jr. and ridden by PR Dilema).

These champions secured the top three positions in the 1st Leg Triple Crown Stakes Race on May 19, 2024, and are now poised to dazzle the audience with their speed and agility once again.

Joining the fray are formidable contenders such as Worshipful Master, Authentikation, and Added Haha, all victors of the 3YO Maiden Stakes races this year.

High Dollar, placing third at the Hopeful Stakes race, and Morning After, who placed sixth, are also set to challenge the frontrunners in a bid for glory. King James, Worshipful Master’s stablemate, will also vie for the cup.

The excitement doesn’t end there; spectators can also look forward to the Hopeful Stakes Race and the 3YO Locally Bred Stakes Race, featuring total guaranteed gross prizes of PH 1,000,000 and PH 500,000 respectively.

These races are a testament to PHILRACOM’s commitment to showcasing the finest in local horse racing talent.

As the contenders gear up for an epic showdown, all eyes will be on Ghost as it strives to defend its title and attempt to sweep the Triple Crown series.

Another win would bring it closer to joining the pantheon of the 14 Triple Crown champions in racing history.

This event is more than just a race; it’s a celebration of the spirit of competition and the pursuit of excellence, according to PHILRACOM.

“We invite all racing enthusiasts and the general public to witness this spectacular event. Experience the thrill, the speed, and the passion of horse racing at its finest,” added the racing body.”
