In behalf of the Board of Directors and members of the Metropolitan Association of Race Horse
Owners, I warmly welcome everyone to the MARHO Ruby Racing Festival.


This is the 19th edition of one of the most-awaited racing events on the calendar, and the
longest-running racing festival. It began as a simple program called the MARHO Breeders Cup to
promote the produce of local Thoroughbred breeders, and to provide them and horseowners with
incentives and encouragement to continue their efforts in breeding and racing local horses.

Over the years, MARHO sustained its Breeders Cup program and even expanded it, in the face
of economic challenges, offering bigger purses for its six championship races. Today it is an established
tradition that is one of MARHOs most significant accomplishments.

This is a most auspicious event because this year, MARHO is also celebrating its 40th founding
anniversary. We thank all industry stakeholders who have contributed to the longevity of our
organization and to the success of our various programs and initiatives.


Together let us face the future of racing with bright hopes and big visions that we can turn into
reality with unity and mutual support.

Welcome, everyone, to the MARHO Ruby Racing Festival!


Over the 40 years since it was established, the Metropolitan Association of Race Horse Owners
has strived to be of service to the horseracing community, in the belief that all sectors must act in
harmony for the entire industry to succeed.


In its own little way, MARHO has made its contributions to the industry and the sport, by
means of the MARHO Racing Program which includes the Breeders Cup and Founders Cup racing
festivals, and through other pro-active initiatives.

We thank our fellow industry members for their support of and participation in our events
and gatherings, and anticipate more years of the same solid and enthusiastic camaraderie.


Our deep gratitude goes to all our sponsors, notably the Philippine Racing Commission, the
Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, and the host racetrack Manila Jockey Club for backing the
MARHO Ruby event.


To all the participants, best of luck, and to the racing fans, may you find this to be another
memorable MARHO racefest!

MESSAGE

Thank you for joining us in celebrating the 40th founding anniversary of the Metropolitan
Association of Race Horse Owners, and the 19th staging of the MARHO Breeders Cup championships,
dubbed this year the MARHO Ruby Racing Festival.


As a member of the racing industry and of MARHO for decades, and having served it as
president for many years, I look back upon the accomplishments of this organization with pride.
MARHO, being the oldest and biggest group of horseowners with a keen sense of responsibility to the
community, passionately involves itself with industry issues that impact the development of the sport
and the business of breeding and racing.

Through its Breeders Cup and Founders Cup racing festivals, MARHO supports the efforts of
Thoroughbred breeders, horseowners, jockeys, trainers, and other members of the industry, providing
hefty prizes and a chance to win fame and glory.


The gains we have made over the decades by staunchly supporting local breeding have
resulted in a new breed of horses that consistently record faster times than those that were around
when MARHO was founded forty years ago.

As we race into the future, we look forward to even better horses and a stronger racing and
breeding industry, that will be part of the Philippine sporting and economic landscape for decades to
come.

horse racing industry and will remain at the helm of progress in the years ahead.


MJCI joins the industry in applauding the members and directors of MARHO for their efforts

Racing fans pack the grandstand at Santa Ana Park in Makati


for the final races of the 12th MARHO Breeders Cup in 2007.

Through the years, its officers, with the loyal


support of its members, have laid a solid foundation
of racing traditions.
Foremost among these is the MARHO Breeders
Cup program, established in 1996 by then-MARHO
president Aristeo G. Puyat together with eminent
breeder and fellow MARHO leader Leonardo Sandy
Javier Jr.
From a low-key racing festival with only two
championships for 3YO horses, the program has
grown into an annual tradition. The MARHO Cup
Championship Day has gained so much popularity
among racing fans that it is the most awaited event
of the year. The 2004 edition broke all sales records
when it was held at Santa Ana Park in Makati City.
Mandaluyong Mayor Benhur Abalos, who was
elected MARHO president in 2005, arranged that
years edition of the MBC, the tenth anniversary of
the event. A Decade of Champions was the theme

for that year, in celebration of ten glorious years of


producing champions and rewarding excellence in
the sport.
He also took charge of MARHO activities from
2006 to 2009, including the MARHO Founders
Cup and the Jade MARHO Breeders Cup of 2009,
commemorating MARHOs 35th anniversary.
In 2010, MARHOs newly-elected president, Eric
Tagle, carried on the revered MARHO legacy by way
of the 15th MARHO Cup Championships, tagged
MARHO Kinse, and the succeeding MARHO Swift
Sixteen, MARHO Daisy-Siete, and MARHO 18th
Edition.
This year is the first under the leadership of
acting president Tony de Ubago. MARHOs directors,
members, and staff proudly present the six major
championship races and 28 trophy races for MARHO
Ruby, the 19th staging of the event, in celebration of
the organizations landmark 40th anniversary. F

The MARHO Story

n the early 1970s, a group of dedicated horsemen


encountered problems in sourcing a consistent
supply of oats for their racehorses. Bound by a
common need, they sought to solve their dilemma
together.
Their efforts were so effective that in 1974, they
established the first horseowners organization in
the country - the Metropolitan Association of Race
Horse Owners (MARHO).

ne of the most-awaited racing festivals of


the year the San Miguel Beer-MARHO Cup
Championships - culminated in a successful
night of racing on 25 Nov. 2012 at the Philippine
Racing Clubs Santa Ana Park in Naic, Cavite.
This was 17th running of the
event, titled MARHO Daisy-siete:
Racing is Blooming. Founded and
organized by the Metropolitan
Association of Race Horse
Owners, this event is the longest
sustained racing festival of the
sport.
That year, a new batch of
MARHO champions was crowned,

most of them longshots trained by


veteran trainer Ruben Tupas.
In the Santa Ana Park-MARHO
Cup Sprint (1,000 meters),
favorite Fierce and Fiery won by
a length-and-a-half with a time of
1:01.6 (12-22-27). The 4YO bay
filly owned by Leandro Naval was
ridden by Daniel Camaero and
trained by Tupas.

Gastambide leads in the MARHO Daisy-Siete Classic.

Tupas scored again in the


Philippine Racing Commission
MARHO Cup Juvenile Fillies
with longshot Five Star, who
flashed past another dark horse,
Congregation, to stun racing fans
and participants alike. Owned by
Antonio Tan and steered by Jesse
Guce, the filly posted a time of
1:46.6 for the mile (26-25-26-28).
Another lightly-regarded
horse, Spinning Ridge, grabbed
the win in the Philracom
MARHO Cup Juvenile Colts.
This one is trained by Nestor
Manalang and owned by Sta.
Clara Stockfarm (also the breeder
of the colt). Spinning Ridge posted
1:45 for the mile (27-26-25-26).
The rain of longshots and
the Tupas winning streak was
extended by Sea Princess in the
Philippine Charity Sweepstakes
Office- MARHO Cup Filly Mile.
Guided by Patricio Dilema, the
HerminioEsguerra-owned-andbred filly beat Cheese Blanca,
favorite Cats Diamond, and Jahan,
in that order, clocking 1:45.8 (2726-24-27).

Mayor BenhurAbalossHagdang
Bato, the outstanding favorite,
won wire to wire with Jonathan
Hernandez aboard. The duo beat
Penrith, Purple Ribbon, Golden
Empire, and Yes Im The One in
that order.
Last years juvenile champion
and this years 3YO star,
HagdangBato, bred by Abalos,
posted a time of 1:43.6 (26-2524-27). And yet again, this ones
trained by Tupas.

It was longshot time again the


million-peso San Miguel BeerMARHO Cup Classic, with Lucban
Mayor Marvin LouiVillaseors
Gastambide taking top honors.
Ridden by John Paolo Guce, the
5YO horse is trained by Dave de
la Cruz and was bred by Esguerra
on his Herma Farm & Stud facility
in Batangas.
Prime Rate came in second,
Barkley took third, and the
favorite Lord of War fourth.

A touching moment occurred


when MARHO president emeritus
AristeoPuyats Paris Melody won
the AndoksLitson CorporationMARHO Trophy race. Puyat
received his award from Andoks
owner and MARHO chairman,
Mayor Leonardo Javier. The
two horseowners and breeders
founded the MARHO Cup
championships in 1995 and still
contribute their efforts every year
to ensure the success of the event.

By Jenny Ortuoste

he Metropolitan Association of Race Horse


Owners (MARHO) staged their iconic
championship races on 24 Nov. 2013 at Santa

B. Hernandez aboard, wins the
MARHO 18th Edition Classic.

Instead of the usual 12 or 13,


15 races were held, six of which
were championship events.
As expected, MARHO Past
President and Mandaluyong
Mayor BenhurAbaloss track idol
HagdangBato easily won the San
Miguel Beer-MARHO Cup Classic
carrying 57 kgs., pulverizing the
meager field wire-to-wire under
the double-wrapped reins of
Jonathan Hernandez.
The 4YO son of Quaker Ridge
out of Fire Down Under, also
bred by Abalos, earned a purse of
P830,000for his 11-length victory
that was a tuneup race for the
December 1 Philippine Charity
Sweepstakes Office (PCSO)
Presidential Gold Cup, where
HagdangBato was himself the
defending champion.
Royal Jewels placed second in
the MARHO Classic, Native Land
third, and Action Sailor fourth
and last. The time for the race
was 2:07 (26-25-25-24-25) for
2,000 meters.
Patrick Uys filly The Lady Wins
proved to have a prophetic name
when she won the Philippine
Racing Commission-MARHO Cup
Juvenile Fillies stakes race,
running off the pace from
frontrunner Miss Bianca
who faded in the
stretch.

This allowed the Significant


Hill-Humble Beginnings progeny
bred by SC Stockfarm and ridden
by Patricio Dilema to win by two.
The clock stopped at 1:45.8
(25-25-26-29) for the mile.
Roman Charm came in second,
That Is Mine third, and Miss
Bianca fourth and last.
The PCSO-MARHO Cup 3YO
Filly Mile honors went to Joseph
Dyhengcos Eurasian (Deputy
Bodman-Eurobucks, bred by
Herma Farms and Stud) who ran
off the pace from Viktoria.
Eurasian, under the guidance
of JeffrilZarate, grabbed the lead
by the home and clocked 1:44.2.
Five Star placed second,
Queen Quaker third (despite
suffering epistaxis at the gate,
which caused a slight delay), and
Humble Submission fourth.
It was Caloocan City ViceMayor MacarioAsistio IIIs BisengBise in the Philracom-MARHO
Juvenile Colts stakes, who raced
in front all the way under Mark
Alvarez to earn P430,000 for first.
The Reenact-Real Queen colt
bred by Asistio posted a time of

1:43.6 (26-24-25-27) for 1,600


meters and won by two.
High Grader, Mr. Bond, and
Young Turk were the placers, in
that order.
The top prize of P430,000 in
the San Miguel Beer-MARHO Cup
3YO Colt Mile went to Hot and
Spicy under Fernando Raquel Jr.,
who scored an upset over Boss
Jaden who was an entry in the
PCSO Gold Cup that year.
Stand in Awe, Spinning Ridge,
and Be Humble were the placers.
SC Stockfarms veteran runner
Lord Of War crowned himself
the Santa Ana Park-MARHO
Cup Sprinter of 2013 by beating
Market Value, Brother Barack,
and Watershed in that order over
1,000 meters.
The six championship races
allotted P20,000 each as a
donation to supertyphoon
Yolanda/Haiyan victims, while
P10,000 was donated for each of
the trophy races. F

MARHO Ruby Sprint

Anybodys race
By Atty. Will de Ungria

n interesting mix
of runners makes
up the evenly
handicapped Sprint
race in the MARHO
Ruby Championships. Six
horses that display flexibility in pacing
are expected to burst their way to the
end of a short 1,000-meter race.
Jeci Lapus Carriedo, a natural frontrunner,
clocked a time of 58.6 seconds in a trophy race last
Oct. 11. Carrying a heavier weight this time around,

CARRIEDO

EURASIAN
MARHO Cup

MARHO_CUP_2014.indd 34

the 7yo mare is expected to give


another early pacer, Karapatan, a good
race at the lead.
A younger mare from the Roxas stable,
Karapatan is expected to shoot to the lead as it is
wont to do in almost all of its races. Clocking a flat
58 seconds last April 27, this 5yo dark bay mare is
expected to shadow Carriedo to the finish line. It has
displayed flexibility in past races and has proven to
be a closer in longer races under different jockeys,
although JB Guce has been riding it fast and even to
the finish in recent races.
While the two early pacers are battling it out in
front, Joseph Dyhengcos Eurasian is poised to take
the lead if and when the two front runners lose wind.
Eurasian has clocked an excellent time of 1 minute in

34

2 0 1 4

11/18/2014 2:11:00 AM

its 1,000-meter runs in 2012. Although not placing


well in its recent runs in longer races, its shorter
sprints give him an even chance of snatching a win
this time.
SC Stockfarms Lord of War has been doing well
in 1,400- and 1,500-meter distances and is known
to be a favorite among longshot punters owing to its
running style of chasing the leader from the back.
Lord of War can be a god of the tracks, too, as it can
run a perfect sprint as it did last Sept. 6, clocking
1:33.4 in a 1,500-meter race.
Its coupled entry from the same stable, Nemesis, is
the sprinter between the two. Placing first or second
in its recent runs, Nemesis likes to stay just behind
the early starters and wins the race with strength
to spar. Most comfortable in 1,300- and 1,400-meter
races, this 3yo mare can easily finish a short race.
Longshot punters have a pick in Market Value
owing to its running style of staying in the middle
of the pack. This 7yo mare from Puyats stable of
winners runs best by not challenging early leaders.
Its steady run from the middle to the
top of the ladder hopefully will
take it to the finish in this short
but fast sprint race. F

MARHO Ruby Juvenile Fillies

Pacers going for the gold


By Atty. Will de Ungria

he bragging rights and hefty prize for the best


juvenile filly this year will be awarded to one of
the nine two-year-olds giving the shortest run
in this 1,500-meter race.
Four fillies by Hook and Ladder
will show whose dam matters.
Princess Meili, out of Feverishly,
has the best 1,400-meter finish
at 1:23 and displays the running
style of a closer.
Another filly out of Hook and
Ladder, Epic, likes to lead to the
finish and showed a best time

of 1:23.6 in a 1,300-meter race.


It placed sixth in its last 1,400meter run and clocked a decent
1:24.8, losing wind only at the last
post after leading the pack in the
first two posts.
Driven, out of My Gals Gold,

its progeny, having just recently


run its novato race followed by a
longshot win with a 1:23 for the
1,300-meters.
Hook Shot, out of Local Rules,
is a presser to look out for. It
placed third in its last run in a
1,300-meter race and clocked
1:22.4.
Surplus Queen (Key Apo x New
Star Lady), and Takeitorleaveit
(Tempestous Wind x Cats Jewel),
are two new runners displaying
decent running times in their
novato runs.
Clandestine (Quaker Ridge
x Jazzart) may stay in the race
long enough to finish owing to its
running style. It placed third in
its last 1,400-meter race at Metro
Turf with a time of 1:26.6.
Cats Thunder (Cat Brulay x
Regal Boom) runs steady in the
middle of the pack. It finished
first in its last 1,400-meter race
with a time of 1:25 and ahead of
Clandestine by eight lengths.
Leona Lolita (Art Moderne x
Syrinx) is an early presser and
may just find the lead to the finish
uncontested but Epic, Surplus
Queen, and Takeitorleaveit will
likely be there in front to take the
fun away and if the speed battle
materializes we can be sure that
Princess Meili, Cats Thunder, and
Hook Shot will capitalize on it to
their advantage.
The race will prove to be a
display of steady and powerful
running with all horses displaying
a tendency to pace themselves
until they get to the finish. F

Unpredictable outcome

ebel Ali? Karangalan? Dixie Storm?


Of the colts entered in this race, judging by their recent runs, these three
have the better records for hurdling this 1,500-meter race. Jebel Ali boasts a
1:29 for the 1,400 meters. Impressive as that clocking may seem, the additional
100 meters will play an important factor in this best-of-the best contest.

An easy choice in this race is Marinx, which has


participated competitively in nearly all distances,
including the mile. Her most recent time for the mile
at San Lazaro is a not-so-brilliant 1:47 when she was
defeated by Low Profile but her 1:35 performance for
the 1,500 meters back in August indicates that she
can do better not only in that distance but also for
the mile.

Bwana Bull progeny


have the edge

By Atty. Will de Ungria

his early, the tandem of Kanlaon (Bwana


Bull x Never Left) and King Bull (Bwana Bull
x Nothing Impossible) appears formidable.
With both runners having had exposure to mile
competitions and even longer distances, their
proud owner, Mandaluyong City Mayor Benhur
Abalos, has reasons to expect no less than the top
plum.

And why not? Most of the


runners here have at one
time or another lost to either
Kanlaon or King Bull. Track
considered, the 1:44 or so made
by the two last Sept. 28 at SLLP
appears to be a shade better
than the others in the field.
If we use the 1,500 clocking
of King Bull to compute what
he can make for the mile, we
will not be surprised if he can
achieve a 1:42 or better.

out of the competition.
His stable mate Mr. Bond

no pushover either and from
all indications this runner will
likely be attacking the lead at the
stretch. Thus the Esguerra stable
too has a right to be optimistic.

Mabsoy (Art Moderne x

us in recent runs that he has a

power. Expected to stay in the
third or fourth spot in the early
going, his third canto charge can
spell the difference.
Wild Talk (With Class x Rumors)
may adopt the same tactic he used
in his May 17 run for the mile in
Malvar, where he showed that he
can run as a back marker and rally
from behind. Wild Talks June 21
performance for the 1,800 meters
in Naic, in which race he led for

opt for the early lead and give the

If I may hazard a probable

My Fascination
with Horseracing
M

y fascination with
horseracing started when
I was wide-eyed ten-year
old lad, who got curious with the
ways of the world, including its
idiosyncrasies. I saw the older
men in our neighborhood in the
working class Manila district of
Tondo discussing animatedly the
recent races they watched at the
San Lazaro Hippodrome, which
was two short rides away from our
place.
I could not help but ask myself
why my neighbors appeared so
consumed and preoccupied with
the races. It must be something
that I did not know, I told myself.
There must be something in
horseracing to attract their
attention, I insisted.
At that time, horseracing was

By Philip M. Lustre Jr.

just months away from being aired


by a television network. For some
unexplained reason, it aroused my
interest; a horseracing bug bit me.
When the races at the San Lazaro
Hippodrome in Sta. Cruz, Manila
and Santa Ana Race Track in
Makati were finally shown on TV,
my interest went to a higher level,
as I savored the childish wonder in
every race.
That was in 1965. At that time,
horseracing was dominated by
topnotch horses like Muscles,
Confetti, Roman Tune, Royal
Tempest, among
others. While most
racehorses that graced
the two racetracks
did not belong to the
much-ballyhooed
thoroughbred quality,
they nevertheless

competed intensely among


themselves. Months later the
likes of Mr. Image, Way Ahead,
Sir Change, and Riches followed
to leave their marks on the two
racetracks. By that time, I watched
intently those races over the blackand-white television sets in our
neighborhood. I got hooked.
Sooner than expected, my
initial interest had transformed
into a passion for horseracing.
I had learned to appreciate the
competition among the many
connections that had graced the
local racetracks. The wild dash to
grab the lead for the competing
horses, the patience for the other
horses to wait and see before
they take any move, and the mad
scramble to the finish line had made
every race an exciting and
unbelievable experience for
a child like me.
Unlike

winners circle at Santa
Ana Park.

cockfighting, where cocks fight to


die, racehorses do not run to die. It
was a pleasant surprise to know the
racehorses that ran the past week
would run again by next week. This
is a difference that I fully appreciate.
For this reason, I have avoided the
cockpit for the rest of my life. I have
yet to go to a cockpit and place a bet
there.
Horseracing is a sport. As a
sport, competition is intense and
passionate. Every connection,
composed of the owner, the trainer
and assistant trainer, the jockey,
and the groom, aspires to become
the best in the local horseracing
scene. Every connection strives
hard to prepare their horses for
the competition and win the races.
Aside from the windfall income they
could earn, those connections want
to earn the bragging rights in the
community of gentlemen.
During those days, I watched
with awe the many ways topnotch
jockeys rode their horses - sprinters
(or those which take the lead),
pressers (or those that press the
sprinters), stayers (or those that
stay in the middle), or routers (or
come from behind horses). I had
learned that certain jockeys excelled
in riding sprinters, or the de bocas.
Other jockeys had outstanding
skills in handling routers, or the de
remates. But few jockeys developed
the overall skills to ride the four
kinds of racehorses. As a rule, it
is not easy for a jockey to adapt
to the temper of every racehorse.
Racehorses are no different
from human beings; they behave
according to their temperament.
They have their mood swings.
The late jockey Elias Ordiales
was probably the best when riding
those sprinters. At his prime, Elias,
or Eleng to fans and friends, was the
master of the pace; it was extremely
difficult to beat his pace while atop a
good sprinter. His imposing presence
loomed large in the racetracks. He
posted many victories, while other
jockeys ate his dust.
But Elias was not the only son of
God in horseracing. The late jockey
Jose Pepe Saulog gave Elias and
other great jockeys of their time a
run for their money, making him
one of the better jockeys when
riding pressers. For a time, the
competition was between them.

MARHO_CUP_2014.indd 52

Red Brolga with jockey Lito (Zabat) wins


against Makati Star, jockey Pete aboard,
via photo finish.

But other jockeys were not that far


behind in skills and ability. They too
gave them the competition, making
horseracing a very exciting activity.
The late Francisco Fernando,
or jockey Hataw to his irreverent
racing fans, developed the skills
in navigating those stayers and
routers. By the sheer power of his
whip, Fernando forced vicious
horses to run according to his dictate
and compete in a race. He was the
strict disciplinarian of horses. To
the surprise and delight of racing
aficionados, they won, but not
without the usual severe beatings
from the revered master of the whip.
Other topnotch jockeys were
also worthy of notice. The 1960s
saw the likes of the Guce brothers
(Eulogio, Pablito, and Guce Jr.,
whose sons and grandsons followed
their footsteps), EmeterioDaquis
(father of Manolito), Arturo
Sordan, dubbed as pingas after
one of his ears was struck by a
horses foot in a racing accident,
Isting Cartasano, Celerino
Falcon, JuanitoMacaraig (father of
JR Macaraig), JoselitoZabat, and
lesser guys like Wilfredo Castillo,
Fernandez, and PepeTorno (who
later became a trainer), Geni, Ben,
Ronnie, Botardo, and younger
guys like Bebet Bernardo, and Pete
Paraino, to mention a few.
My fascination with horseracing
stemmed from the sight of those
racehorses. As a lad, I was awed by
their intricate breeding, imposing
size, well-chiseled shape, and
unmatched speed whenever they
go out of the starting gate. By sheer
size and shape but not exactly
speed, the better horses of the
1960s could rival the thoroughbred
MARHO Cup

horses that arrived on the local


racing scene ten or 20 years later.
When I entered high school in
1967 at the University of Santo
Tomas, which was a kilometer away
from San Lazaro, one of the very
first things I did was to watch the
trangko, or morning workouts of
horses that had stables there. Since
my classes started at 12 pm, I went
to the track at around 7 am and
watched the galloping horses until
10 am. I could not help but admire
their speed, shape, and built.
I saw the likes of High Pocket,
Top Soldier, Column Five, WalaHala,
Ringleader, Pearl Ring, and of
course, the diminutive Iranza, which
won several long distance races.
At that time, the 2,000 meter race
was introduced and experimented.
Iranza won over the bigger horses,
or the so-called mola type.
My passion for horseracing
gracefully continued during my high
school days. When I was a Boy Scout
in my first and second years, I and
my high school buddies proceeded
to San Lazaro immediately after
our Saturday training ended at 5
pm to watch the last two races and
placed our modest bets on horses
of our choice. It did not matter
much whether we won or lost. But
mattered most was we had fun.
The same routine continued in
our third and fourth years, when
we took our Preparatory Military
Training, or PMT. During those days,
the San Lazaro was not fully lighted,
but we were good for the last two
races. W saw races that were barely
visible because of the darkness
that enveloped the racetrack. That
was true during the months of
December, January, and February.
But when the Manila Jockey Club
management decided to hold night
races every Wednesday, a different
story ensued. I was a college student
at the University of the East in mid1970s, when I went to those night
races at San Lazaro. Although my
stomach was grumbling of hunger,
I and my college chums went there
after our classes. It was fun. I
remember taking the cheap food at
the various carinderias in and out of
the racetrack.
At that time, my fascination
with horseracing transformed into
a strong belief that going to the
racetrack was a form of social life,

11/18/2014 2:11:44 AM

a diversion from the rigors and


inanities of our daily existence. We
need a break. Horseracing offers
that break from the daily grind.
It is essentially a form of sports
entertainment, no different from
other sports like sports, boxing, and
the like.
My appreciation for horseracing
goes deeper, when, years later,
I learned to appreciate that
horseracing is not - and never - for
heavy betting. Horseracing is not
designed for heavy gambling. It does
not pay to place heavy bets to the
point of losing ones shirt.
Since all bets are placed in a
parimutuel pool, it does not reward
racing fans, who place heavy bets
on certain chosen combinations.
It skews the dividends. While
horseracing has a betting side,
betting is for gaming, not gambling.
There is a wide world of
difference between gambling and
gaming. People who engage in
gaming do the betting for fun, to
release all the tension and pent-up
emotions, and eventually relax.
Hence, horseracing is a form of
relaxation. Only fools who do not
know how to handle their money
lose their shirt in horseracing.
As years went on, my fascination
for horseracing has been reinforced
by testimonies of racing aficionados
and friends on how they have

acquired certain material things


from their winnings in horseracing.
Have you seen that secondhand
car? I bought it after I won a quarter
of a million pesos in the winner take
all, a friend once told me.
In contrast, I have yet to hear
of success stories from the casinos
or cockpits. I used to crack the
joke that it was not uncommon for
a casino aficionado to tell a friend
these lines: Have you seen that
beautiful house out there? I used to
own it but sold it out after I lost in
the casinos.
My fascination with horseracing
flourished when I finished college
and went to work as a journalist. I
remember going to the racetrack
after finishing my work. I remember
entertaining myself there during
weekends. At that time, many
thoroughbreds had invaded the
local racing scene. Imported
stallions and mares arrived and
they multiplied to give the two
racetracks the critical mass of
thoroughbred horses. The planned
improvement of their bloodlines had
happened expected.
I remember how Fair and Square,
the ugly duckling that buyers
rejected in an auction, rose to the
occasion to become the undisputed
champion in the early 1980s. I did
not expect it would dominate the
racing scene. That super horse

Eduardo C. Domingo Jr. with Jenny Ortuoste at SLLP in 2007. Domingo was a star
jockey who went on to become a race analyst on the live race coverage and a
Philracom commissioner.

was so overpowering that no other


racehorse could match its speed and
skills.
By that time, younger jockeys
arrived to take the place of Elias
and company. Jesus Guce, Eduardo
Domingo Jr., ElpidioAguila, Andres
Camba, GuarinoInfantado, Rizalino
Agustin, Ernesto Ventura, and
others took over and dominated
horseracing.
Later, other super horses
followed as the government came out
with the official policy to encourage
horseracing as the game for the hoi
polloi, or the masses. Regular stakes
races were scheduled, while the
improvement of the thoroughbred
bloodlines of many horses had
become a consuming passion among
horse breeders, giving the two racing
clubs the racehorses they need for
the races.
Hence, horseracing became more
competitive during the late 1970s
and 1980s. This is the same spirit of
competition that has persisted over
the next decades as more racehorses
have come to the scene, while the
government has continue to support
horseracing, which has become an
industry that provides employment
for thousands of people and raises
taxes for the government.
In brief, my fascination with
horseracing is not a fleeting
moment in my youth. It has evolved
to become part of my personal
conviction that we need horseracing
to provide cheap entertainment for
millions of people and diversion
from the drudgery and boredom of
their daily existence.
In short, horseracing has to stay.
It is not perfect, but it continues to
evolve to make it truly the delight of
the masses. F
