Third favorite Boss Emong captured the 2022 Philippine Racing Commission-Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office Silver Cup at the Metro Manila Turf Club track in Malvar, Batangas Sunday.
Boss Emong, with jockey Jeffril Zarate on top, held off Sky Shot by a mere half-a-head, clocking 1:51. Big Lagoon took third.
Rounding out the finishers were Super Swerte fourth, War Cannon fifth and King Tiger sixth.
The winning horse earned P2.4 million for its owner Kennedy Morales.
“This surely was a race to behold as it held everyone at the edge of their seats until the official outcome was declared. This is the type of pulse-pounding races that the bayang karerista will expect in the coming days and weeks as we head toward the end of the year and the Presidential Gold Cup still ahead,” Philracom chairperson Aurelio “Reli” de Leon said.
