Anteros, by Multidimensioanl out of the Indian Derby winner Moonlight Romance (2010), will make his second lifetime start on Saturday at Mahalaxmi in a race that is reserved only for three year olds. He needs to tackle only two rivals--Highland Breeze and Himalayan, but both of them have already won one race each.
In spite of duo's winning experience, they may find the Pesi Shroff-trained three-year-old colt a hard nut to crack in the J D & Peggy Banatwalla Trophy, the feature event of Saturday's eight-race evening card.
