Philippine Daily Inquirer
THE 2012 Don Juan Derby pays Don Antonio O. Floirendo Sr. a tribute during its finale at San Lazaro Leisure Park in Carmona, Cavite.
Don Antonio O. Floirendo Sr., avid supporter of the Don Juan Derby races, will be honored posthumously by officers and members of the organizing Klub Don Juan de Manila (KDJM) and the Manila Jockey Club, Inc. (MJCI) for his invaluable contribution to local horse racing industry.
“As chair emeritus of KDJM, Don Antonio has been a pillar of support and inspiration, serving as our principal adviser and ever generous in giving his time and financial support to all our projects,” said KDJM president Tonyboy Eleazar.
Doña Nenita R. Floirendo and the entire Floirendo family have been invited to grace the Don Juan Derby Day tribute, which will be held prior to the running of the “Don Juan Golden Girls Stakes,” which will henceforth be named the “Don Antonio Floirendo Memorial Race.”
Expected to share the limelight for the blue ribbon event is the winner of the Resorts World Manila-sponsored Don Juan Derby.
