India Weekend Race Recap – April 27th, 2019
The latest edition of the Sunday Races at the Delhi Race Course turned out to be a high scoring affair for us here. The horse races held no major surprises, with our picks coming out on top in both the events highlighted in our last Delhi Race Club betting preview. Only the long shot picks disappointed, which is no major cause for worry, because, they were long shots after all! Let’s take a close look at the winners from the Sunday races.
Delhi Race Club Betting: Review For April 21st
The Global Stud Million
This was a very interesting race, packed with 3-year old horses in their first racing season. And at 1600m, it was long enough to have potential late surprises. But that did not prove to be the case, as both our Delhi Race Club betting top picks cantered home with ease, well ahead of the chasing six.
This bay filly was our number two pick for this race due to her overall performance this year. After Sunday’s win, she now has three wins out of four, which is quite impressive indeed. She won the race easily in the end, ahead by more than two lengths from her nearest rival. The jockey in the saddle for the day was Ranjeet Singh.
2. Top Secret
Though he had raised our hopes with two wins out of two in March, this bay colt could only finish second on Sunday. With jockey D S Deora in the saddle, Top Secret managed to make it home with a time of 1:40:17, barely three-quarters of a length ahead of the chasing pack.
3. Coup de Foudre
This bay filly made the Global Stud Million a race to remember for Trainer Magan Singh, as she, along with the other two horses, were all trained by him. Coup de Foudre happens to be a very experienced horse, having already had five races, with a respectable haul of one win and three places so far.
The Shrimati Meena Devi Sarpanch Memorial Plate
In contrast to the Stud Million, this particular race had more seasoned campaigners in the running. It was an invitational event for all horses rated above 40. There were 10 horses on the course for this Class 3 race. At 1100m, it was short on length, but definitely not in terms of drama and excitement. Moreover, much like in the other event, two of our three Delhi Race Club betting picks came out on top. Here is how the horses finished in the end:
1. Jungle Wave
Again, it was our number two pick who actually won this race. Furthermore, Jungle Wave was the youngest horse in the race at just 3 years. With this win, she has succeeded in making it a hattrick, which shows just how promising this young filly’s future looks at the moment. She dominated the race, winning by almost six lengths in the end, with a time of 1:05:47.
Though much older and more experienced than Jungle Wave, this dark brown gelding could only manage to finish a distant second on Sunday. Trained by KP Singh, Gleneagles had rider Praveen Sainin in the saddle as he crossed the post with a time of 1:06:38. He was barely two lengths ahead of the horse who finished third.
3. Fly Away
With one win and 3 places out of 13 races, Fly Away is not exactly a consistent performer. But nevertheless, this bay mare had a decent race on Sunday, edging ahead of Winners Gold to finish third. However, our long shot for this race, Ponty Rossa, only managed a distant sixth. Fly Away finished the race with a time of 1:06:72.
