Horse racing lovers in Jamaica and in the diaspora are in for a treat as The Bridge 99 FM is now the official broadcasting partner for Caymanas Park Racing.

Through this partnership, The Bridge will air all races on its local 99 FM bandwidth and throughout the diaspora via the Caribbean Global Network (CGN) and its affiliates in the New York Tri-State Area (Irie Jam Radio).

“It is a great pleasure for The Bridge to be associated with Caymanas Park because it speaks to the endorsement of the horse racing fraternity. Horse racing is a very popular endeavour and the fact that SVREL reached out to us to carry the races is a signal honour because it shows us how significant we are,” commented Clyde McKenzie, director of the Bridge 99 FM.

“This partnership is another step in our journey to take horse racing to pole position in sports in Jamaica and to also compliment the digital upgrades we have made in the last five years.”

For years, horse racing fans have enjoyed colourful commentary of Caymanas Park Racing and, as the official broadcasting partners, The Bridge 99 FM said it was pleased to contribute to the sport both locally and internationally.

Speaking on the partnership, Lorna Gooden, general manager of Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited (SVREL), noted: “The SVREL team is very pleased to be entering a new era in our broadcast of live racing from Caymanas Park. We anticipate rekindling a love for horse racing in those who are regular Caymanas patrons and igniting a passion in new spectators whose eyes and ears will now be open to the electrifying races. This partnership is another step in our journey to take horse racing to pole position in sports in Jamaica and to also compliment the digital upgrades we have made in the last five years.”

Robert Clarke, president and chief executive officer of Caribbean Global Network.

Said Robert Clarke, president and CEO of the Caribbean Global Network: “I must extend thanks to SVREL for this partnership. I am ecstatic, having lived in the diaspora, and to bring to that market what they are looking for. This is a part of the vision for The Bridge and I must thank Caymanas for being a part of that vision.”

Viewers from the diaspora will now have the opportunity to place bets online through the MBET App without having to visit the park or any Off-Track Betting (OTB) parlours.
