Press Release:- Saint Lucia is preparing to host its first international horse race in the town of Vieux Fort, following the arrival of 40 thoroughbred horses to the island.
The race track, managed by the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club, was constructed by the Desert Star Holdings Company. The race is the first public event at the club’s new facility, which is part of the Pearl of the Caribbean development, spearheaded by China Horse Club founder and chairman, Teo Ah Khing.
The arrival of the horses and the near completion of the race track has secured local employment both at the construction phase, and in the training of young people.
The Office of the Prime Minister reiterated support for all projects that are beneficial to Saint Lucians—whether investors are local or international.
The “Race to the Pitons” will be held on Dec. 13.
