The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) is claiming it is unaware that spectators are getting special treatment to watch horse racing at Caymanas Park while other sports are not afforded same opportunity in light of the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic.

Minister without Portfolio with responsibility for Information in the Office of the Prime Minister Robert Nesta Morgan today confirmed that he was in the dark where that is concerned and added that he needs to consult with Sports Minister Olivia Grange and Local Government Minister Desmond Mckensie to get a clear picture as to this situation.

Concerns about favoritism continues to be voiced over what appears to be different set of rules for the various sporting bodies as it relates to spectators being granted access to attend events.

This in light of the government giving permission to 10,000 fans to attend the Gibson/Mckook relays and also allowing fans of horse racing to attend Caymanas park while at the same time barring spectator access to Jamaica Premier League matches and all but one of the Reggae Boyz home games during the ongoing World Cup qualifying campaign.
