ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Six beasts of speed will face off for the coveted Governor’s Cup Crown at the Clinton E. Phipps racetrack in St Thomas, USVI on May 2, 2014 with most eyes centred on the main attraction and returning champion, Really Uptown.

According to the recently released official race card for the St Thomas Festival races, Uptown will defend its title against Swagg Daddy, Slevin, Edge Ahead, Town Hall and Admission.

The 1mile and 70yards feature race will be run for a purse of $27,000.

Uptown’s first outing against Admission has already created a stir since Uptown has already proved its mettle against other horses in the race, including Slevin and Town Hall, most recently in the Easter races at Ellis Thomas Downs earlier this month.

Meanwhile, horse owner Violet ‘Letty’ Hodge remains keen on defending her title and has already dismissed talk about Admission trying to take the crown from her champion horse. “Of course, I have to defend my Governor’s Cup, I need another one,” Hodge stated following Uptown’s last race.

In addition to the feature race, there will be seven supporting acts for the card which gets started at 2PM with the Angel Corneiro Cup and also a teen challenge race with $120 for first place.
