The 12th annual Supreme Ventures Limited Jamaica two-year-old horse racing series starts tomorrow with the Cash Pot Race Day at Caymanas Park.

This year's staging of the anticipated race day will see the gaming company giving well-deserved recognition to the owners, trainers and jockeys who have excelled in the sport of kings, especially those who have made their mark during the racing series' 12-year run.

The main feature of the Cash Pot Race Day on October 15 is the 1200m Cash Pot 'Only One For Me' Trophy Race, which will have an attractive purse of $2.95 million.

The action continues with the Pick 3 Race Day on November 26, 2016, when the Pick-3 Super Challenge Trophy and a purse of $3.6 million will be up for grabs, and culminates with the Supreme Ventures Race Day on December 27, 2016, when a $1-million bonus will go to the owner who has won all three race days.

The event will also feature several on-the-ground activities, including on-site SVL lottery terminals, big ticket promotions and social media contests. SVL will bring back the popular Supreme Ventures Triple Entry Promotion, 'Dip in the Cash Pot' and the lucky wheel of fortune.

To enter the Triple Entry Promotion, punters will have to keep the special coupon they will receive on entry at each race day, fill out all three coupons correctly, and submit all the coupons on the final race day on December 27 when the grand draw will take place. The prizes include a 55" smart TV; a Samsung S7 smartphone and a cash award. Punters who purchase a Cash Pot ticket of $200 or more at any of the on-site terminals will get a coupon to complete and enter for the dip in the Cash Pot. Prizes range from $5,000 to $180,000.
