Horse Racing in India had been banned for almost 6 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Bangalore Turf Club (BTC) became the first horse-racing club in the country to resume operations. They kicked off the winter season just days ago on November 1st with the Rajyotsava Trophy. BTC is all set to host the 2nd race of this winter season. There will be no Bangalore Turf Club betting happening for this race sadly.
You can check the results of Winter Season’s 1st Indian Horse Race which took place on Bangalore Turf Club.
Guidelines for COVID-19 & Bangalore Turf Club Betting
Usually, the Bangalore Turf Club hosts just under 10,000 spectators for an event like this. But thanks to the Covid-19 restrictions, the eight races took place without any spectators whatsoever.
The only personnel that was allowed into the club were essential staff, club officials, and just one owner per horse. Also, the presentation ceremony that is trademark after the end of each race was amiss on this occasion.
Furthermore, horse race betting on the first two races of the winter season has been called off. An online betting portal is said to be a work in progress and should be available from November 14th. You should be able to bet online for the races scheduled on November 14th, 21st and 28th. Bangalore turf club betting will be a lot of fun for the avid bettors.

Bangalore Turf Club: Horse Races preview, November 7th
The second day of racing this Winter Season at the Bangalore Turf Club will take place on Saturday, November 7th. It will comprise of the following 7 races.
Race 1: The Madras Race Club Trophy – 1400-meter race for horses rated 75 and above
Two sons of the prolific stallion Multidimensional (IRE) are the ones to watch in this race – Secretive Force, a dark brown colt and Cosmos, a bay gelding. Both are 5-year olds and come from the stables of trainer Darius Byramji. Both are reliable runners with 4 and 5 wins apiece.
Irfan Ghatala-trained Automatic, all of 6-years, is the other highest-rated runner in this event. The dark bay gelding is the progeny of Lord Admiral (USA), and has 20 places out of 29 starts, with five wins. There is one another Multidimensional progeny in this race which would be worth an outside bet – 5-year-old Kerazano trained by the great S Padmanabhan. The horse has 4 wins out of 7 starts.
Race 2: The Air Force Trophy – 1400-meter race for horses rated 45 to 65
Corona Del Corsa is a hot one in this race, coming from the yards of trainer Prasanna Kumar. Sired by Air Support (USA) off dam Silken Touch, the 4-year-old bay gelding has 6 podium finishes from 10 starts, with 3 wins. The vastly experienced Regal Music, with 30 starts and 5 wins, is another one to watch in this race. The gelding is the issue of Green Coast (IRE).
Akita Pro, a bay mare trained by Irfan Ghatala, rounds off the top-three highest rated list for this race. She has only placed outside the top four once in her 13 starts, and also has a pair of wins to her name. For a long-shot bet, the 4-year-old filly Electra, trained by SS Attaollahi is a good option. She has had 9 starts so far, with six of them in the top three (2 wins).
Race 3: The Bidar Plate – 1200-meter race for horses rated 30 to 50.
Top billing here goes to Animal Queen (formerly called Acina). The dark brown filly is 4 years old and trained by Rajesh Narredu. The daughter of Tazahum (USA) and State Secret has two wins out of 12, with another couple of finishes in the top three. Le Marc, a mare sired by Lord Admiral (USA) is another popular option trained by Neil Darashah. In her 13 starts to date, she has produced 3 wins and a trio of other finishes in the second and third spots,
Caballo Rapido and Defender are two other fine prospects for this race. The latter is a half brother of Animal Queen sired by Tazahum. The bay gelding has a win and a second position from his 4 starts to date. Caballo Rapido is a more experienced one with 12 starts and 8 finishes in the top four in those runs. Another issue of Lord Admiral, he comes from the stables of trainer Irfan Ghatala.
Race 4: The Bangarpet Plate – 1400-meter race for horses rated 30 to 50 and of 4 years or older
The aptly named Grey Channel, a grey gelding is the top rated horse for this race. Sired by the prolific Green Coast (IRE) off dam Coco Chanel, he comes from the yards of S. Inayathulla. Though he only has one win out of 12, he has finished in the podium places another 6 times. Whizzo is another strong contender with more impressive stats. All five of his starts have ended in the money, with one win and a pair each in second and third spots. The bay gelding is the son of Top Class (USA) and Dangerous Belle and is trained by Azhar Ali.
The chestnut-coloured Treasure Striker has 41 starts under his belt and is another one to watch in this race. The son of Sedgefield has secured top-four finishes in more than 20 races, with three wins. His trainer is Mahmood Khan. Trained by B Prithviraj, Skyfire is a decent long shot choice sired by Green Coast (IRE). The bay gelding has finished in the money four times in his 9 starts.
Race 5: The Kokkarebellur Plate is a 1600-meter race for maiden horses 3 years old only
Since this is a maiden race, all the horses start on an even keel. Pissarro, a chestnut colt sired by the legendary Kingda Ka, (AUS) is an excellent pick. He is currently under the tutelage of SS Attaollahi. Arlette, sired by Air Support, is also a great option. The bay filly is also a stablemate of Pissarro. Sired by Leitir Mor (IRE), Redoubtable from the stables of Prasanna Kumar, and Sporting Memories from the stables of S Padmanabhan, both colts, are expected to do well.
Race 6: The Aihole Plate is a 1200-meter race for maiden horses 3 years old only
Another ward of SS Attaollahi gets top marks here – Bellator. A chestnut colt sired by Western Aristocrat off dam Nickel Chrome. Statesman, a grey colt sired by the famous Win Legend (JPN) is another strong contender. Gallic, a bay gelding sired by Phoenix Tower looks quite good. Neil Darashah is the trainer here. Air Support’s progeny Handsome Rocky, is a dark brown colt many punters will be looking at closely.
Race 7: The Antar Gange Plate is a 1400-meter race for horses rated between 15-35
The young filly Flamingo Road, all of 3 years old, is the star attraction in this race. Sired by Top Class and trained by Arjun Mangalorkar, she has impressed in her two races so far, with a win and a third place. Keeping her company at the top of the charts is Caracas. Son of Air Support, he is also competing in his third race, with one win out of two starts so far.
The very experienced Industrialist is a one to watch in this race as well. The 7-year-old chestnut gelding sired by Win Legend has 33 starts to his name, with 19 finishes in the money (two wins). Zhu Zhu Zest, another progeny of Air Support is younger but with good stats – 7 starts have yielded 4 finishes on the podium. The 5-year-old is a bay mare trained by V Lokanath.
