Guyanese trainer in line for US$1,000,000
October 26, 2002
Hot on the achievements of boxers Wayne Braithwaite and Vivian Harris who despite tremendous odds won world title crowns in boxing another Guyanese, Abraham 'Eddie' Katrayan, a horse race trainer of some repute stands poised to go down in the history books if his horse 'Wake At Noon' can wake to the challenge and defeat more favoured horses in today's prestigious Breeders Cup race which carries a first prize of US$1m.
Katrayan was born at Auchlyne, Corentyne and has enjoyed previous success at Woodbine with Wake at Noon, the Canadian horse who is considered a front runner.
Wake at Noon is shown at 50-1 in the pre-race forecast but despite the odds a victory today is not out of the question even though race favourite Rock of Gibraltar is considered near unbeatable.
