Rising almost 800m towards a sapphire sky are Saint Lucia’s iconic Pitons - talismanic geological wonders that have been a siren song to intrepid travelers for centuries and which continue to symbolize a people of unmistakable warmth and a nation with a history as rich as the West Indies itself.
It is only appropriate that a race that will launch the world’s newest thoroughbred industry in Saint Lucia draws strength from this iconic landscape.
The Race for The Pitons Cup will be the richest thoroughbred contest in the Caribbean. Drawing inspiration from the Pegasus World Cup and The Everest, it presents a bespoke racing model crafted to appeal to spirited racing adventurers the world over.
The Pitons Cup will crown the CECF Saint Lucia, the Caribbean’s only luxury lifestyle event, which will be held on 13th December 2019 – Saint Lucia’s National Day and an occasion of euphoric celebration.
With prize money totaling USD150,000 The Pitons Cup presents an enticing prize as well as a unique experience at an event that will have unmistakable Caribbean flavours.
Only 12 entrants will participate in The Pitons Cup and one will etch their name into history as the first of all time.
