ROK Hotel returns to sponsor Mouttet Mile
ROK Hotel, famed for its steadfast dedication to perfection, has decided to once again sponsor the highly anticipated second staging of the ultra-rich Mouttet Mile (invitational).
The Mouttet Mile Race Day is set for December 2 at Caymanas Park.
The ROK Hotel will be the venue for the official welcome reception and the post-position draw of the Mouttet Mile (invitational).
Marlene Buckridge, sales and marketing manager at ROK Hotel, confirmed her company’s sponsorship of the Mouttet Mile (invitational).
“Participating in the second hosting of the Mouttet Mile at ROK Hotel Kingston was never a question for us. It’s a truly prestigious event, and we relish the opportunity to be part of such occasions,” Buckridge said.
“We believe in the significance of horse racing, not only for the industry but for all Jamaicans. Recognising the deep-rooted history of horse racing in our culture, and with ROK Hotel’s mission to revive Kingston, it’s a perfect fit.
“We are thrilled to partner with Supreme Ventures and anticipate another outstanding year for the Mouttet Mile Race in 2023. Personally, I’m most excited to witness the vibrant and creative outfits,” she further added.
Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited (SVREL) Brand Optimisation Manager Arielle Beckles expressed her delight about the relationship with ROK Hotel.
“This partnership marks a significant milestone for both Supreme Ventures and ROK Hotel. Together, we are setting a new standard for excellence in sports sponsorship, and we are thrilled to be a part of the Mouttet Mile Race Day’s journey towards greatness,” she said.
The fact that the Mouttet Mile (invitational) carries a total purse of US$150,000 makes this the largest purse for a single event offered at Caymanas Park. The remaining races on the day will carry purses of over $1 million, which also makes this race day the richest in the English-speaking Caribbean.
The Mouttet Mile takes its name from its main sponsor Paul Mouttet, chairman of Trinidad and Tobago-based Zodiac Caribbean Ventures Limited, currently the largest shareholder of SVREL’s mother company Supreme Ventures Limited (SVL).
