Hyderabad Race Club Review For 27 October, 2019
In our last weekend horse racing preview, the focus was on the Sunday’s events at the Hyderabad Race Club at Malakpet. The two highlight events were both Class 3 races with average quality on the field. Did we pick any winners last weekend? Let’s find out in this race review.
Who Won At Hyderabad Race Club Last Weekend?
The Nawab Arshad Ali Khan Memorial Plate
There were 8 horses on the race card for this Class 3 event and all of them finished the race on Sunday. The maximum allowed rating for this event was 65, but there was only one contender with anything close to that, Cape Kidnappers, our top pick.
To keep her company in the chosen trio, we had the young filly NRI Heights and the inexperienced Cincia Azzurra as the long-shot pick. The tote favorite in this even was Roll Call. Both Cincia Azzurra and NRI Heights finished outside the top 3, in fourth and sixth respectively.
Here are the winners of this race:
Call of the Blue
Trainer RH Sequeira had a memorable race, with two of his horses on the podium. The first was a three-year-old bay gelding sired by Chinese Whisperer (IRE). Rated at 47, he had odds of 6/1 and was piloted by jockey Koushik. Call of the Blue won by a margin of one and a half lengths to seal the third victory of his career (out of 6 races).
The tote betting favorite could only manage the silver spot here. A stable mate of Call of the Blue, trained by RH Sequeira, this bay filly is the issue of Whatsthescript (IRE) and dam Knockenduff (GB). Rated at 52, she had odds of 3/1 and jockey Afroz Khan in the saddle for this race
Our top prospect for this race finished a shade over a length behind Roll Call in the end. She was barely half a length ahead of Cincia Azzurra in fourth. The trainer for the daughter of Abbeyside is Shehzad Abbas and Suraj Narredu is the jockey.
The Raja R J K Ranga Rao, Zamindar Of Chikkavaram Memorial Cup
The second last race of the day at Hyderabad Race Club was a relatively shorter affair at 1600m, compared to the 2400m distance of the other featured race. All 13 horses on the race card competed in this event without any hitch.
The tote favorite was the 53 rated Staridar, who had a nightmare of a race, finishing in the bottom three at 11th. Our pick for the winner was That’s My Magic, followed by King Maker in second and Big Brave as the un-fancied long odds choice.
Of these three, Big Brave disappointed with a 10th place finish just ahead of Staridar, while King Maker was in the top five at fifth. Let’s check out how our favorite for this race fared:
That’s My Magic
Jockey Suraj Narredu enhanced his reputation at Hyderabad on Sunday with five wins out of seven races. This was his fifth win of the day. The grey gelding he rode was the son of Saamidd (GB), trained by SSF Hussain. This was That’s My Magic’s fourth win, out of 16 runs.
Sired by Gusto (GB) off Fast Escape (IRE), this bay gelding is four years old. His trainer is S Sreekant, and his jockey is Irvan Singh. There was not much between him and That’s My Magic, with the margin of victory being 3/4th of a length.
Trained by LD Silva, this is a five-year-old chestnut gelding. The son of Sedgefield (USA) had jockey Ashhad Asbar in the saddle for this race. The distance between him and Nayadeep in second was barely half a length, while he barely edged out Lockhart into fourth by a margin on a neck.
