A World Slasher Champion in 2003 and became popular breeders since then; many was surprised for his win because only the big time were winning at World Slasher  Cup at that time. Luckily, he won again for two consecutive years in 2011 and 2012. Before these wins, he’s a two-time runner-up with a score of 7 wins and 1 lost of this derby in 2005 and 2009.

His name is Rey Briones who proved to the cockfighting world that his chicken breeds were really great. His natural talent in chicken breeding and conditioning were truly applicable because of his wins.

His Spartan Farm derived from gladiator of ancient times in Rome wherein, Rey Briones thought otherwise that his chickens are very suited for this name – very brave, have unique strength and fight like gladiators inside the cockpit arena. Besides, his favorite movie is Spartacus.

Rey’s a tabloid newspaper executive and a columnist. He’s very familiar with regular readership everyday and a cockfighting enthusiast dreaming to win in a big derby. He considered himself as a marginalized breeder because during that time his conditioning area was only about 54 hectares. He had only a few chickens, unlike today that he has many chickens, about more than two thousands. He preferred chickens coming from Negros when he first fought in World Slasher Cup. He’s very confident for a win in every cockfighting derby.

The rest is history for him when he first won the World Slasher Cup in 2003. He gave inspiration to marginalized breeder to continue their journey in cockfighting industry. Engr. Sonnie Magtibay who is also a World Slasher Champion followed the footsteps of Rey Briones.

In World Slasher Cup, there’s no champion before he became a winner, but when he won that also the time that new breeders are making a new record in that prestige derby. From being unknown they become a famous in an instant and that was happening to him. He expanded his farm from the winning !

His farm is located at San Miguel Bulacan, it is almost at the foot of Sierra Madre. As of now, he doesn’t buy chicken in Negros because he already established himself as a breeder. As a matter of fact, he has his own signature bloodline like Spartan Red, Spartan White, Spartan Bulik, Spartan Black and Spartan Gold. It is composed of different chickens like Dink Fair, Perry Hatch, Roundhead and msny others.
