There are also at least 20 foreign entries from the mainland US, Guam, Hawaii, Saipan and Australia, he said. Many of the foreign entries have sent their fowls as early as two years ago so that they can acclimatize to local conditions.
Local participants are also formidable players and are regular participants in tough derbies nationwide. Also vying for the much-coveted cup are tough competitors from Negros and Panay Islands such as Johnny Ledesma fighting in tandem with Ilonggo contractor Lando Layson, who had already won this event for at least three times. Rafael Nene Abello, another breeder known for his sugarcane plantation and high quality imported goat breeds has also been a consistent participant and winner.
