THE Araw ng Maynila racing festivities returns to the Manila Jockey Club (San Lazaro) in Carmona, Cavite this Thursday, June 24, 2021 with nine trophy races that will have added cash prizes and trophies to the winning horse owner, and medals to the victorious jockeys and trainers.
Araw ng Maynila races, historically the most anticipated and most exciting racing day in the yearly racing calendar of the horse racing industry, returns from a one year absence through the efforts of Manila Rep. Manny Lopez.
“Taun-taon, isa sa pinaka-malaking paraan ng ating pag gunita sa Araw ng Maynila ay ang pagdaraos ng Araw ng Maynila racing festival. Noon, kahit hindi natatapat sa araw ng karera ang June 24, ginagawan natin ng paraan upang maganap ang napakasayang araw ng karera para sa lahat ng bayang karerista at para maipagmalaki ng bawat Manilenyo. Kailangan nating pahalagahan ang ating mga tradisyon at ang ating kasaysayan kaya’t ako’y nagsumikap upang maganap itong espesyal na pagdiriwang na ito,” Lopez, the congressman from Tondo area, said.
“I look forward to seeing all our bayang karerista in the Araw ng Maynila Racing Festival and I would like to greet all kareristas, happy racing. I would also like to greet the people of the City of Manila a meaningful 450th foundation day. Next year, with all your help and support, I look forward to seeing the return of the Gran Copa de Manila race and a stronger horse racing industry,” Lopez added.
