Supreme Ventures on Thursday launched the 14th edition of the Supreme Ventures Two-Year-Old Series with the first race set for the end of September 2018.

The series, the first of its kind in the English-speaking Caribbean will take the form of three graded two-year-old races that have come to be known as the 2Two-Year-Old Triple Crown.

The first race on September 29, 2018, is the Cash Pot Only One For Me Trophy over 1200m for a purse of approximately US$24,000.

The Pick 3 Super Challenge Trophy will be contested over 1400m on Saturday, November 24, with a purse of approximately US$26,000.

The final race in the series – The Supreme Ventures Limited 2-year-old Stakes over 1600m will go off on December 26. This race carries a purse of approximately US$29,000.

While speaking at the launch held at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston on Thursday, SVL Chief Marketing Officer Heather Goldson said the additional investment of approximately US$33,000 this year further demonstrates the company’s commitment to racing in Jamaica.

“We stand committed with our family at Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited SVREL, to improving the racing landscape in Jamaica, and we think we can confidently state that with the combined effort of our team members and valued industry stakeholders we are moving at a steady gallop in achieving that goal,” she said.

If any horse wins all three races, its owners will walk away with a bonus of approximately US$7000. However, to become eligible for the bonus and free entry to the first two races a horse would have to pass through, sold or unsold in the 2017 Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA) Yearling Sale on Sunday, November 12 and be nominated by their owners to TOBA on or before November 12, 2017.

Horses that were not entered, sold or nominated at the TOBA sale on November 12, 2017, are still eligible to run if their owners pay a nomination fee by the times designated by the condition booklet.

    Donjuan Triumphant, owned by the late Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, delivered an emotional victory on the final day of the flat turf calendar at Doncaster on Saturday.

    Srivaddhanaprabha was one of five people who died when his private helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium last month.

    And on the day Leicester honoured Srivaddhanaprabha against Burnley, their first home game since his death, Donjuan Triumphant secured a poignant win in the Wentworth Stakes.

    The five-year-old edged out Hey Jonesy to earn a first win in the blue and white colours of King Power Racing since Srivaddhanaprabha's passing.

    Speaking after the race, trainer Andrew Balding said in quotes reported by Racing UK: "It puts horse racing and the triviality of other things in life into perspective.

    "It was a huge loss not just to his family and families of other people involved in the crash, but to the whole King Power family.

    "He was a tremendous guy, as has been well recorded and reported, and will be sadly missed."
