Six equally-capable mares will be out to prove their mettle for the top prize of P1.2-million in this Sunday’s 2023 Philracom Sampaguita Stakes at the Metro Manila Turf Club.
This will be a true test of their abilities as this is the most prestigious event exclusively for female horses four-years-old and above as they will have to dig deep into their strengths in negotiating the 2000m distance.
The cast is made up of Cam From Behind with Kelvin Abobo on board, Charm Campaign partnered with Patricio “Pati” Dilema, Dambana having Jeffrey Bacaycay on top, Enigma Uno to be steered by John Alvin Guce, Flattering You will be with Jomer Estorque and La Liga Filipina travelling with Andrew Villegas.
The race is expected to be a toss-up which will prove to be very interesting for the racing fans as mere fractions of a second separates all six in their previous runs.
“This will surely be a race to watch as all runners have a chance of pulling off the win considering their previous performances and with the distance playing an important factor in the connections’ strategieys,” Philracom Chairman Reli de Leon said.
He furthers, “The betting pools in this race will be spread out thereby giving the bayang karerista a juicy payout should he pick the winning combination.”
