Early Gold Cup fever
FIVE WEEKS AWAY from post time and it seems that anticipation for the Sandy Lane Gold Cup is bubbling and on the point of boiling over.
Chief executive officer of the Barbados Turf Club (BTC), Rosette Peirce, says demand for tickets for the Grand Stand at the Caribbean’s premier horse race has been overwhelming and they are virtually sold out.
Stating that the Gold Cup on March 7 was likely to be one of the biggest in years, she said: “There are hardly any tickets left for the top floor and we are selling out quickly.”
Peirce said VIP tickets could be bought online but patrons could come to the BTC office, make their booking and pay at a later date.
Her advice to racing fans was “to come in and make your bookings from now”.
