SIS sponsors Confraternity Cup on Caribbean Classic day at Hipódromo Presidente Remón Racecourse



SIS (Sports Information Services), the leading multi-content supplier of 24/7 live betting services, will sponsor the $100,000 Copa Confraternidad del Caribe on the Clásico Internacional del Caribe race day, the annual Caribbean nations thoroughbred championship day, held on December 10th at Hipódromo Presidente Remón in Panama City, Panama.

The Clásico day attracts the leading horses from Panama, Venezuela, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic competing for more than $800,000 in prize money across six Grade 1 races.

The Grade 1 Copa Confraternidad del Caribe is the second most important race in the Caribbean series, which sees horses aged three and over run on the dirt over 1¼ miles.

The Clásico del Caribe (Caribbean Derby) for 3-year-olds is one of the region’s most revered races, where winning brings national pride and prestige. Panama leads the member nations with 15 winners, while Venezuela and Mexico are tied with 14 each in the 56-year history. Last year’s running held at Hipódromo La Rinconada in Caracas was won by Iniesta, who was an unbeaten colt from Mexico.

The host venue rotates between nations each year with Panama hosting for the first time since 2015. Founded in 1956, Hipódromo Presidente Remón is rich in history and is home to the famous Laffit Pincay Jr. Technical Jockey Training Academy, known as the “cradle of the best jockeys in the world.”


Top jockeys will ride on the card, including Irad Ortiz, Luis Sáez, Ricardo Santana, Paco Lopez, and Javier Castellano. Together, they have accumulated over $100 million in prize money this year. The legendary Laffit Pincay Jr. will be an honorary guest.

All international racing content supplied by SIS is made available as an end-to-end solution, with round-the-clock betting events incorporating live-streamed pictures, data, on-screen graphics with betting triggers, and an extensive range of markets and prices.

SIS delivers more than 35,000 live horse racing events annually, including over 150 race days from Panama and premium races from Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and Uruguay.

Michele Fischer, Vice President at SIS Content Services, said: “The Clásico del Caribe day is one of the biggest events on the Caribbean calendar, and its return to Panama this year promises to create an electric atmosphere. We are pleased to enhance our commitment to global racing by supporting this multinational race day.”

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. We deeply appreciate your support, which not only extends our horse racing to over 50 countries but also opens the door to future expansions.”
