VIZCAYA’S ALMUETE BAGS 2009 NFGB PRESIDENTS CUP 8-STAG
Engr. Moises Almuete, Jr., Moy to his friends, continues to make his presence felt, with an impact.
After capturing a share of the championship of the UGBA Big Event One-Day 10-Stag Derby of the United Gamecock Breeders Association held at Makati Coliseum on last month together with Thunderbird Winning Team member Cong. Lawrence Wacnang, Engr. Almuete brought his act to Cebu and with a score of 7 wins and 1 loss bagged solo victory in the highly prestigious 2009 NFGB Presidents Cup 1-Day 8-Stag Derby held at the New Talisay Cockpit last December 12, in which 27 of the 29 presidents of NFGB member-associations took part.
Almuete fought a fleet of Sweater blend of Bruce Barnett & Dink Fair; Dan Gary Roundhead with 20-Grand Kelso & Gilmore Hatch; Howard Belk Claret x Dan Gray Roundhead-Hatch and Leiper /Blueface Hatch x Kelso.
“After traveling from Vizcaya to Cebu for about 10 hours, I’m telling everyone that I don’t come here to lose”, Moy jokingly said, on the eve of the event, when his turn came to speak after the various presidents of the respective breeders organizations from all over the archipelago were introduced and asked one by one about their chances of winning the title. The occasion was the Thunderbird-sponsored Christmas & anniversary celebration of the Central Visayas Breeders Association who hosted this year’s NFGB Presidents Cup.
Almuete is the founder and president of the fast-growing Vizcaya Ifugao Gamefowl Breeders Association – one of NFGB’s young members.
