Programa Dividendazo – Saturday April 23, 2016
Any horse owner, bettor, or racing afficionado knows what a Dividendazo is but to the unitiated, a Dividendazo is the name of one of the various horse racing programs in the Philippines. There are other horse racing programs available but Dividendazo is the easiest to read and it also contains other important information mentioned in other more expensive racing programs. It is published every time there is a scheduled horse race in any of the three race tracks here in the Philippines – The Sta. Ana Race Track in Naic, Cavite, The Manila Jockey Club located San Larazo Leisure Park in Carmona, Cavite and Metro Manila Turf Club in Malvar, Batangas.
The Dividendazo consists of 4 pages which is actually just a very long paper folded into two. For easy viewing, the race program is contained in the first and last page and pages two and three contain the results of the previous weeks’ races.
As much as the Dividendazo is the cheapest, most popular and most widely circulated among horse race program available in the Philippines, it is not as widely circulated as I would like it to be. For one, not all newspaper stands carry the Dividendazo. Usually, only those newspaper stands where a nearby off-track betting (OTB) station is located and these newspaper stands are not located at the mall. Each Dividendazo costs only 9php so it’s not too bad considering the wealth of information it contains.
