BAKBAKAN ’09 AGAIN AT
MAKATI COLISEUM TODAY
With last year’s 2,207-entry field already broken, the supposedly last national eliminations for the 2009 Bakbakan 10-Stag National Derby takes center stage at the Makati Coliseum today with 100 entries vying to get into the winners circle and advance to the semis. An extra elimination derby had to be done on Nov. 18 at Makati Coliseum to accommodate 70 more entries who wanted to catch up.
Bakbakan 2009 is hosted by the National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders and co-presented by Thunderbird Ganador Max. A total of 150 exciting fights are lined-up which will start at 10:00 ten in the morning.
After this, the action shifts to Araneta Coliseum for the first two separate eliminations on Nov. 17 & 19.
The third national semis gets going at the Pasay Cockpit on Nov. 20, after which the hostilities enter the home stretch with seven-tiered finals, leading up to the grand finals on December 3 at the Big Dome wherein all the undefeated entries will lock horns for the highest honor a gamefowl breeder could have – a Bakbakan trophy.
Meanwhile, Samar-Leyte’s popular cocker and Thunderbird Winning Team member Bernie Tacoy, with his Ormoc Gold fighters, was added to the list of undefeated entries after scoring 3 wins out of 3 matches in the last Bakbakan elims in Cebu. His first two entries both posted 2 wins and 1 loss each.
