Horse Racing In India Review – 3 November, 2019
It is time to take stock of the weekend horse racing in India action that took place recently. And to this end, we head to Hyderabad, where we had our preview of the Sunday’s races at Malakpet. The two races we focused on were the Beginners Plate and the Deccan Star Plate. Without further ado, here are the results:
The Beginners Plate
In this 1100m sprint aimed at two-year-old colts and fillies, there were 8 contenders on the race card. And all eight of them managed to start the event on Sunday. In our preview, we picked Bulls Ace as the horse to watch, while the crowd had Astronaut as the tote favorite.
Both youngsters failed to live up to their billing, finishing 7th and 6th respectively. That leaves us with two horses from our preview, Aintree as the number two and Queen Daenerys as the long-shot pick. They were both on the money in this race, which ended with the top three looking like this:
The son of Mull of Kintyre (USA) and Oceanic Wisdom, this young bay colt ran a tight race. He finished three quarters of a length ahead of the nearest challenger to win his first race. His trainer is D Netto, and he was piloted in this winning run by jockey AA Vikrant. Trump Star was fighting against odds of 6/1 in this event.
The bay filly sired by Green Coast (ORE) off Coco Chanel was in the midst of the leading pack as they crossed the post. The margins were pretty tight, with just half a length separating her from the third-place finisher. Trained by LD Silva, Aintree was ridden by jockey Ajit Singh is this race.
This bay filly comes from the yards of trainer Arjun Anne. She is the progeny of Saamidd (GB) and For Sure. She finished a clear two lengths ahead of her chaser in this race. Kuldeep Singh was her jockey in this race.
The Deccan Star Plate
In our second feature race, the Class 3 event had attracted 9 contenders before race day. All nine got to the starting blocks and all of them managed to finish the race safely. This was a 1200m race and our top pick for this one was Vijays Singham, who also happened to be the tote betting favourite.
The other two horses highlighted in our preview were Sitara and Royal Dynamite as the long-shot bet. Of the three picks, only Royal Dynamite had a poor day, finishing the race in 7th position. The other two had good runs, finishing in the top three which looked like this:
The tote favorite ran a comfortable race, winning by a margin of one length in the end. The three-year-old son of Leitir Mor (IRE) and Zarandja (IRE) is a bay colt from the stables of trainer Laxman Singh. After fourth races, he has already chalked up three wins and is yet to finish outside the top two. Robbie Downey was his jockey in this race.
The bay filly sired by Burden of Proof (IRE) off dam Cesandri is a ward of trainer K Satheesh. She had jockey Nakhat Singh in the saddle for this race. Rated 44, this bay filly was involved in a tight race with Sitara, before ultimately edging ahead by a margin of a shoulder length.
The final member of the leading pack finished a good 7 lengths ahead of the horse in the fourth position. Ridden by jockey Neeraj Rawal, she comes from the yards of trainer LVR Deshmukh. This bay filly is the progeny of Arazan (IRE) off dam Flaming Glory.
