Welcome to the 37 th running of the PCSO Presidential Gold Cup!
It is gratifying to see how this race which started out as a way to provide a competitive venue
for the best quality local-bred racehorses is now a revered annual tradition which participants and
racegoers alike look forward to every year.
PCSO is proud to be a part of this event and a partner of the thoroughbred racing industry
over the decades, as part of our mandate to support the sport of horseracing and its allied activity
of breeding. We appreciate how this relationship has brought together joint efforts to reaffirm our
commitment to uplift the sport and share resources with underprivileged fellow Filipinos in the areas
of health care and medical assistance.
As the horses break from the gate for this year’s PCSO Presidential Gold Cup, may we also
spare a thought for the needy and afflicted in whose lives our helping hand or comforting touch may
make a big difference.
My sincere wishes for success and fortune to all the participants and racegoers, and warm
greetings for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

MeSSAGe
Busy as the men and women of the PCSO were this year with the agency’s Diamond
Anniversary activities, it seems time flew by so fast that once more we stage the PCSO’s flagship horse
race – the PCSO Presidential Gold Cup.
The occasion brings to mind the long partnership between PCSO and horse racing through the
years, as both worked together to harness resources that would benefit charitable projects.
To the race participants, good luck! To the racing fans who have been loyal supporters of the
race, our best wishes.
As the Diamond Anniversary year draws to a close, let us look back on the accomplishments
made, yet let us not rest on them. For the work never ends, and our hands must be willing and able to
labor and persevere; for it is in helping our fellow man that we help ourselves learn, grow, and achieve
enlightenment.
To all, best wishes for a joyous PCSO Presidential Gold Cup celebration, and greetings for a
happy and blessed Christmas!

Philippine Racing Commission
MeSSAGe
For over three decades the PCSO Presidential Gold Cup has occupied pride of place in the
ranks of horseracing competition as the most significant honor that one may win. To triumph in this
race is a goal that many horseowners, trainers, jockeys, and other stable and ranch staff prepare for.
As an incentive to encourage achievement in the sport, the Gold Cup is certainly one of the
most effective and has contributed significantly to raising the bar for standards of speed, stamina, and
courage. Records have been broken several times at this event; exciting duels fought to the wire; and
stories of victory and heartbreak written and re-written with different characters and details.
The PCSO Presidential Gold Cup event is now inextricably linked with the history of
horseracing. The story unfolds anew every year, richer and brighter and better.
The Philracom is proud to support this annual tradition as a partner of the PCSO in uplifting
and promoting horseracing and breeding.
In behalf of the Commissioners, officers, and staff of the Philracom, I greet the PCSO once
more on their Diamond Anniversary, and wish the best of luck to all the race participants.
Warm Christmas and New year greetings to all!

Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office
MeSSAGe
Through the years, because of my involvement in horseracing as part of my duties with the
PCSO, it has been my pleasure to observe how warmly participants and racing aficionados welcome
the staging of the PCSO Presidential Gold Cup.
It is without question the most prestigious event on the racing calendar and owning a replica of
the PCSO Gold Cup is the dream chased by many horseowners. Yet while many may aspire to such a
feat, to few go the honor, as only the best entries may hope for a chance at winning the gold.
As a way of encouraging exciting competition, then, this race is serving its purpose. As a means
of drawing together diverse people to share a common pastime for a day, and as a way of promoting
the sport to the public, it does all that too.
But more than these, the PCSO Presidential Gold Cup stands for something more – that
indefinable, intangible something called “excellence”. And it is that quality that I see in every
participant in this race.
To all the competitors, grace and good fortune. To the Philippine Racing Commission and to
the Manila Jockey Club, deep gratitude for their whole-hearted support. To those who helped organize
this event, kudos for a good job.
And to all who are here to witness this race, held during the PCSO’s Diamond Anniversary, may
you hold fast the memories of this once-in-a-lifetime event.
In behalf of the Committee on Races, welcome to the 37 th PCSO Presidential Gold Cup!

the

i TS purity is legend- ary. Its yellow shine made ancients be- lieve that the sun’s

rays were locked in its glowing depths. Its beauty is so rare that men seek for it under the earth with much toil.

The PCSO Presidential Gold Cup is fashioned from one of the most precious metals known to

man because gold symbolizes many of the virtues that make up an ideal competition – the purity of sportsmanship and of “the turf”; the glow of pride in honest achievement and hard work; the rare wonder and mag- nificence of athletes locked in battle for the prize. in nearly forty years of run- ning the Gold Cup, the PCSO has established a yearly tradi- tion that is one of the most ea-

gerly-awaited races in the sport. Breeders carefully match sire to dam to produce the foal with the winning blend of speed and strength; horseowners painstak- ingly select the best from their racing stables to prepare over a couple of years for this event; trainers peer at their stopwatch- es as they condition their horses to championship standards; and jockeys grip the reins tightly as they gauge their horses’ efforts,

assessing which one has the best chance at winning the coveted Gold Cup. The Gold Cup’s Roll of Cham- pions (elsewhere in this issue) reads like a Who’s Who of the best and finest of all the race- horses that ever trod dirt on Philippine racetracks. All the competitors in this event want to be the next one on that list. Racing fans study programs and videos of past performances, trying to choose the next winner – who will be the next Gold Cup champion and possibly the one to also cop Horse of the Year honors? All the horses in this year’s race are canny colts or horses and stellar campaigners. Ibarra is the defending champion, and comes off a third place finish in the November 22 Philracom Eduardo Cojuangco Jr. Cup at San Lazaro Leisure Park. A long spell of inaction and resulting

lack of tune-ups due to not hav- ing enough population in his group to form races could have been a factor. Yet he is eager for a win; his opponents will find him a tough defender of his crown. Shining Fame exerted brave effort to win the 13 th MARHO Breeders’ Cup Colt Mile in 2008, and had a string of stakes victories after that. Don Enrico won the Division ii of the 1 st Mayor Ramon d. Bagatsing Memorial Cup set last August at the New Santa Ana Park in Naic, Cavite, and the 14 th PCSO First Gentleman’s Silver Cup in June this year. don Enri- co ran off the pace and staged a rally in the stretch to overcome the fading Ibarra. Shining Fame placed fourth in that same race. Dream Supreme copped the second leg of this year’s Triple Crown series for 3yO. Sent off as fourth favorite, he came from

the back of the pack in the 1,800 meter race to win. Dumadagun- dong and Sword O’War will try their best to score an upset in this event. Need it be said once more that this edition of the Gold Cup is all the more special as it falls in the PCSO diamond year? Certainly this will be an exciting and memorable race. Everywhere, one sees the glit- ter of gold – in the horses, the riders and other participants, the race organizers, the racego- ers - the gold of excellence and achievement, of dedication and perseverance, of hard work and discipline. And the gleam of charity shines above all, as the PCSO continues its efforts to support and uplift horseracing, all the while doing its best to make a difference in the lives of the un- derprivileged Filipinos it serves. Now that is true gold.

The PCSO Presidential Gold Cup was conceived
in the early 1970’s by the then-PCSO Board of Di-
rectors headed by chairman and general man-
ager Nereo C. Andolong to boost the local horse
racing industry and to elevate its standard to in-
ternational levels.
Held annually in honor of the country’s Chief
Executive, the Presidential Gold Cup was first held
on 7 October 1973 at the Manila Jockey Club’s San
Lazaro Hippodrome. Since then, it has achieved
the lofty status of the sport’s most prestigious
race.

champion filly Sun Dancer created quite a stir by du- plicating Time Master’s unblemished run through the Triple Crown and the Gold Cup. Sun Dancer created track lore in 1990 when she captured her second Gold Cup victory in a row to match her sire Fair And Square as the only other horse to score back-to-back cup con- quests.

Rolando Rojas sent off his stable’s star, top favorite Crown Colony, to score a

dramatic last to first performance in the Gold Cup, re- bounding from a poor start twenty lengths off the lead- er to win by a slim margin over Joy Rojas’s Rising Sun. President Fidel Ramos himself was on hand to award the trophy to the owners of the winning entry, the first president to have ever graced the running of the race.

Rollie Rojas had another strong bet in promising 2yO Strong Material. The

precocious colt proved his mettle against the best of the land by becoming the youngest winner of the Gold Cup.

history, with unheralded Red Star Rising and Triple Crown winner West Bound battling it out neck-to-neck going into the final straight. In one decisive push to the payoff line, Red Star Rising outdueled West Bound by a neck to gain instant celebrity and crown himself Gold Cup champion.

de la Hoya’s team threw in the towel before lunchtime, handing Pacquiao yet another international victory and fur- ther cementing his reputation as a “Mexicutioner”. With that resolved to the deep satisfaction of sports fans, they trooped to Santa Ana Park or their nearest OTBs for the day’s races. On the track, as in the ring, it was the one closest to the hearts of fans that won the ultimate. Ibarra, acknowledged as one of the most talented racehorses to ever grace the sport, tied the record for the 2,050 meters by clocking 2:09 in the PCSO Pres- idential Gold Cup. The island-born son of mul- tiple American stakes winner Yonaguska out of the race- mare Fire Down Under, Ibarra crushed opponents as formi- dable as Real Spicy, who set the record for that distance twice in 2006; 3YO Indelible Ink, juve- nile champion in 2007; Native Land, PCSO Gold Cup defend- ing champion; Shining Fame, winner of the third leg of the 2008 Triple Crown and that year’s Santa Ana Park-MARHO Breeders’ Cup Colt Mile; and veteran runner Henry d’Eight. At the start, ibarra was slow out, as he reared and stepped backward before launching out of the gate. The delay may have cost him the record; track pun- dits estimate that he lost up to one second, precious time that could have allowed him to set a new track time in a sport where clockings are reckoned in frac- tions of a second. Once out, though, Ibarra took the lead under the guidance of regular rider Kelvin Abobo, who just sat coolly on the horse, de- spite the pressure from Shining Fame, who briefly got a nose in

front of Ibarra just before the home stretch. But with a mere flick of the whip at that point, ibarra bounded forward once more. Kelvin never lost his head for a moment; he knew his horse through and through, and was certain that the bay colt still had much to give. Down the stretch the whip, which was never raised and re- mained tucked in Kelvin’s right hand, flicked Ibarra’s shoulder, once, twice, four times. The colt flung his legs out, eating up me- ter after meter in a magnificent performance that had the over- flow crowd on its feet, roaring with delight. Behind the 4yO ibarra, Shin- ing Fame’s jockey John Alvin Guce beat the horse with his stick perhaps as hard as Pac- quiao rained jabs and hooks on de la Hoya. To no avail; the 3yO bay was pressed to his utmost and had no more to give. ibarra won by two-and-a-half, with Kelvin standing in the irons just before they hit the wire, giving his practically unused whip a victory twirl.

ibarra’s owner, Mandaluyong City Mayor and Metropolitan Association of Race Horse Own- ers president Benhur Abalos, was ecstatic. His pride and joy had been sidelined for most of his 3YO season with a chip bone problem. Abalos and trainer Ru- ben Tupas didn’t rush the colt’s recovery; their patience paid off. “We want to show the world that the Philippines can produce champion racehorses — that is why I named him Ibarra,” said Abalos. ibarra was the protago- nist of national hero Jose Rizal’s two novels, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Describing the oppressions of the Spanish colonial regime, they sparked the Philippine revolution. For Philippine sports, that day will always be memorable. Ibarra and jockey Kelvin Abo- bo’s accomplishments brought their connections as much pride and honor as Pacquiao brought to the nation. And for the continuing saga of the PCSO Presidential Gold Cup, it was one more thrilling victory to etch on the annals of the sport.

combination worth P. million in the October 7 draw have no reason to

PCSO chairman Sergio O. Valencia and the Board of Directors allocated 30 per cent or P10.3 million of the charity fund generated from that Mega Lotto draw for the relief and rehabilitation of Ondoy victims. The P92.8-million Mega Lotto jackpot, won by an elderly couple from Quezon City, contributed an additional P27.84 million to the PCSO’s charity fund. Aside from the lone jackpot winner, 69,573 other bettors won more than

P6.2 million in consolation prizes for correctly guessing between three and five numbers of the winning combination. PCSO vice-chair and general manager Rosario C.
