CHARLESTOWN, Nevis -- President of the Nevis Turf and Jockey Club Allister Thompson indicated on Tuesday that horseracing fans on Nevis are in for a huge treat come September 16.

On that date, the local Horseracing Association will be hosting its signature event for the year -- the Dan Bartlette Memorial Stakes.

Thompson’s horse, the renowned Mr Big Pepe, will be on show again in the feature race of the day against all of five other powerful horses: Obama, Real Aspectations, Wild Candy, Lowette’s Hill and Real Magic.

He is confident however that Mr Big Pepe will leave the competition in the dust once again.

The usual press conference will be held prior to the big September meet and this will feature the executive of the Nevis Turf and Jockey Club, along with some jockeys and trainers and members of the press. The major trophies will also be on display.

In reference to the meet held last Sunday, Thompson thought that it was “a huge success” and thanked the spectators for showing up in such large numbers. There was one unfortunate incident when a horse from his stable broke a leg during one of the races.

Quite apart from that and a few stuttering starts to some of the races, the day at the Indian Castle race track was well spent.

Thompson expects the biggest crowd yet come September 16 and promises that the spectators will be well entertained -- on and off the track.
