SIS Sponsors the Prestigious Copa Confraternidad del Caribe at the Clásico Internacional del Caribe

Sports Information Services (SIS), a prominent supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has announced its sponsorship of the $100,000 Copa Confraternidad del Caribe. This event is part of the Clásico Internacional del Caribe, the annual championship day for thoroughbred horses from Caribbean nations.

The event is set to take place on December 10th at the Hipódromo Presidente Remón in Panama City, Panama.

A Gathering of Champions

The Clásico Internacional del Caribe attracts leading horses from countries including Panama, Venezuela, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic. These participants compete for a substantial prize pool of over $800,000 across six Grade 1 races.

Spotlight on the Copa Confraternidad del Caribe

The Copa Confraternidad del Caribe, a Grade 1 race, is the second most prestigious event in this series. It features horses aged three and over, racing over a distance of 1¼ miles on dirt. The Clásico del Caribe, also known as the Caribbean Derby, is one of the region’s most revered races, particularly for 3-year-olds. Panama currently leads with the highest number of wins in the race’s 56-year history. Last year’s winner was Iniesta, an unbeaten colt from Mexico.

This year marks Panama’s first hosting of the event since 2015. The Hipódromo Presidente Remón, founded in 1956, is not only a historic racecourse but also houses the Laffit Pincay Jr. Technical Jockey Training Academy, renowned for producing world-class jockeys.

Star-Studded Lineup of Jockeys and Honorary Guests

Top jockeys like Irad Ortiz, Luis Sáez, Ricardo Santana, Paco Lopez, and Javier Castellano, who have collectively earned over $100 million in prize money this year, will be participating. The legendary Laffit Pincay Jr. will be present as an honorary guest.

SIS provides a complete end-to-end solution for international racing content, which includes live-streamed pictures, data, on-screen graphics with betting triggers, and a diverse range of markets and prices. Annually, SIS delivers over 35,000 live horse racing events, covering races from various countries including Panama, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and Uruguay.

Industry Perspectives

Michele Fischer, Vice President at SIS Content Services, expressed enthusiasm for the Clásico del Caribe’s return to Panama and its significance in the global racing calendar.

Carlos Alberto de Oliveira, Jr., COO at Hipódromo Presidente Remón Racecourse, said: “We are pleased to share the excitement of this year’s prestigious Clásico del Caribe in Panama. On this occasion, we will be awarding over $1,000,000.00 in prizes across 28 races, including 6 International Grade 1 Classics. Additionally on Saturday, we will be celebrating Mother’s Day Classics and Laffit Pincay Jr., along with the debut of students from our jockey technical academy, known as “the cradle of the best jockeys in the world.”

It is an honor to have the ongoing support of SIS, our valuable partner, playing a key role in one of the most significant days in the Caribbean racing calendar.
