A card of 10 races scheduled for the day. It looks like a favourites day with most favourites coming through.
Race 1. Good Gift, Voodoo Moon, Tern Me On Upset : Star League
A bad race by all accounts. The horses are evenly matched as they all are poor.
Race 2. Heat Haze, Ailsa, Royal Surprise Upset : Adonis
A very open race. Six Gun Smith won very well last time, is carrying top weight today, running after 3 months almost, winning today will be tough. Spark Of Sapphire ran well last time, will have its chances here. Ailsa has got good turn of foot, will fight for honours.Sun Forever won well last time, but winning here will test its true potential.Heat Haze has been unlucky twice, is ridden by Srinath today, watch out. Royal Surprise was thought highly of initially, can place here .Adonis is tracking well, with this Jockey has a good chance to upset.
Race 3. Amiable Lady, Spark Of Isis, Attractor . Upset : Sunnyland
The race is between Spark Of Isis and Amiable Lady. Sunnyland can place at long odds.
Race 4. Plaka, Fiorucci, Fist Of Rage Upset : Sky Marshal
Sky Marshal looked impressive initially of its career, had some setbacks can win here, provided is fit enough. Fiorucci won well last time has a chance here again. Fist Of Rage was a disaster in the derby, can place here though. Plaka is tracking well, drawn badly here, but with Sylvester to guide, will still fight.Windsor Park is at a nice handicap, is running after a long time, can place.
Race 5. Hockenheim(Win), Castro, Formidable quest Upset: Severstahl.
A 3 year old maiden race. The main contenders are Severstahl, Castro and Hockenheim
Castro is bred well, tracking very well, drawn badly, will place for sure. Hockenheim ran well 1st time up, tracking extremely well, drawn badly today but wont matter because of good initial speed, with Sylvester to guide should win. Formidable Quest is by Anasheed, whose progenies are normally good at 8f and above, may place here. Severstahl can upset here.
Race 6. Yas Marina(E/W), Delacroix, Saloni Upset : Con Artiste.
The main contenders are Yas Marina, Delacroix, Saloni and Con Artiste.
Con Artiste at this handicap is a danger to all. Yas Marina is a classy animal, tracking well will fight hard. Delacroix a late bloomer, has come up by leaps and bounds, tracking very well, will give fight to all.
Indian Bolt can hope to place. Saloni went off boil, now rested, and working well on tracks, can place here.
Race 7.Spark Of Gold(Win)
The Stayers trial stakes has only 5 horses running. Firezone running this distance for 1st time, can come into frame only if the race pace is slow, which is likely. Spark Of Gold is a genuine stayer, if fit will win by a street is surely the one to beat here. Henry's Secret will stay but not in the same class as other horses here. Spearhead wont stay as well. Sun Control wont stay in atrue pace race can hope to place because of handicap.
Race 8. Spark Of Solitaire, Leon Cavallo(Win), Virtuoso Upset : Supreme Arch
Race 9. Anna, Accurate, Senor Speedy Upset : Sun Dancing
Race 10. Nector Crown, Man Down Under, Trillion win Upset : Give Me The Money
All the best.
Welcome to Indian Horse racing and thrills that come with it.
Indian horse racing is complex. The quality of horse racing in india was very poor but recently we are seeing very positive improvements in standards. The standards are looking to improve immensely in the coming times. The training facilities, the stud farms, training methods, quality of Jockies, the quality of stallions everything is improving. I would like to contribute from my side into those exciting times ahead. So, for the exciting times ahead...
