THE Koroua Horseracing Club of Navosa will host a promotion/relegation tournament today in a build-up for the Fiji Cup competition on February 6.

The club which is hosting a tournament every fortnight is hoping to draw a big crowd. Event co-ordinator Marika Nagata said the prestigious Fiji Cup would have top Fiji horse Hot Chillie defending the title against Stima.

"Stima is an upcoming horse owned by Sheik of Maro, Sigatoka. This horse has been winning all its races lately and proved to be a top contender and worthy challenge for Hot Chillie."

Nagata said Mission Babasiga, Striker, Digicel Lavo and Golden Boy were the top horses taking part in today's race. "We are hoping to accommodate horses from Nadroga, Navosa and Nadi in the promotion/relegation competition."
