PUNE: A competitive ten-race card on Sunday will bring the curtain down on a very interesting and enjoyable Pune monsoon season 2015, in which 234 races were scheduled over 28 race days, and some amazing riding display by Trevor Patel and Dashrath Singh won the hearts of rail birds.
Costa Del Sol, winner of the Poonawalla Breeders' Multimillion at Mumbai and the FD Wadia Trophy at Pune, towers over all his rivals both on the strength of Dynamic Ratings as well as the inherent class factor. Although stretching over mile for the first time, the Pesi Shroff-trained three-year-old colt, carrying the silks of stockbroker Rakesh Jhunjhunwalla, is expected to complete what looks like a mere formality by winning the feature race.
First race at 12.30 pm.
