MASBATEÑO TANDEM WINS 1ST BAKBAKAN CROWN FOR RGBA
Ironically a tandem of Masbateños with their rooster farm situated in Antipolo City, finally gives the mighty Rizal Gamefowl Breeders Association their first-ever Bakbakan championship by capturing the 3,528-entry 35M 2010 Bakbakan 10-Stag National Derby hosted by the National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders, The grand finals was held at the Araneta Coliseum last Saturday – December 4.
After closing just a half-point shy last year to bring home a Bakbakan trophy for the RGBA when they scored 9 points each in their two entries for a total of 18 wins and 2 losses, Masbateños Engr. Ralph Daigo & Dr. Ronnie Magbalon with partner Gerry Garovillas made sure they bring home the bacon this year by scoring a dizzying 9 win & 1 draw in its first entry Grand Richelle-1 and 10 perfect wins on its other entry Grand Richelle-2, thereby posting a total of 19 wins & 1 draw out of 20 matches to earn a share of the title with Quezon province chief executive Gov. Jayjay Suarez (Bondoc Peninsula).
Rey Briones…another Masbateño finished with 9 wins and 1 loss.
Grand Richelle, like last year, again fielded an all-bulik line-up out of breeding stocks from Gengen Arayata of Cavite who won the Bakbakan in 2007 with the buliks that were originally acquired from the late Cong. Danilo Lagbas of Cagayan de Oro.
The bulik of Grand Richelle which kept the crowd shaking their heads in disbelief are so good that they might end up also winning the 40M Rambulan Derby wherein the champion triumvirate’s two other entries have yet to lose a fight with 6 perfect points apiece going into the finals next week.
RGBA which contributed more than 200 entries to this year’s Bakbakan made their presence felt with a bang with 12 entries (six 6-pointers and six with 5.5 points) entering the grand finals.
Four of RGBA’s members Joey Sy with Tony King (Pitviper Vandog); Rey Briones (Spartans RB 9); lady cocker Osang dela Cruz (GQ Mountain Eagle) and the trio of Rodel Ongmanchi, Charlie Chan & Jesry Palmares (RGBA JPCC RJR Moncada 2) finished with 9 points each.
