Parliamentary Representative for Vieux Fort South, Dr Kenny D. Anthony, has welcomed the return of horse racing in his constituency. According to him,
“Last Sunday’s horse racing event was not only remarkable but hugely successful. It defied all expectations
None of what happened would have been possible without the generosity and interest of Rayneau Gadjadhar whose company prepared the track and even after the event rolled the track to allow grass to grow evenly on its surface. It really was a pleasure to see the army of employees of the company in attendance at the races.
SLASPA too, deserves the thanks and commendation of all. SLASPA understood the yearning of the young people of Vieux Fort for horse racing and yielded the site to them for the event. That decision made all the difference.
Then too there were donors, the many individuals and commercial establishments who called the organizers and offered their support and assistance. They too understood the value of horse racing to the community and its significance to the young people of the south.
Not to be forgotten were my constituents and the patrons who attended, not only to express their support and solidarity but simply to enjoy the event.”
According to Dr Anthony,
“I can only hope that the time will come soon when our horsemen, who for years nurtured their love and passion for horses and who kept the sport of horse racing alive, will have unimpeded access to the DSH Horse Racing Track.”
