HOT Chillie took out the Champion versus Champion Fiji Cup horseracing competition at the Koroua Race Course in Navosa on Thursday.

Ridden by champion jockey Mohammed Farouk of Yako, Nadi, Hot Chillie defeated Stima in the 1200 metres event.

Dubbed as the fastest horse in the country, Hot Chillie remains unbeaten.

Farouk who has been racing horses for more than 20 years said Hot Chillie had been invited for a return match-up with Stima next month.

Farouk said the race against Stima was a close one.

"Hot Chillie is in top form and I was sure of winning from the start," he said.

"The organisers of the event have requested for a rematch which I have gladly accepted."

Organiser Marika Nagata said it was a successful event and a good turnout was recorded.

He said impressive times were also recorded during the race.

"This is the first time that the Fiji Cup was hosted at Koroua. The next tournament will be held next month."

The win earned Farouk $1100.
