Horse Racing: Bling for Byculla Club Trophy

Jan 24, 2013, 01:46 IST | Prakash Gosavi

Only four horses are in the fray for the longest race of the current Mumbai season, the Byculla Club Trophy to be run over 2,800 meters, which is slated as the feature event of Thursday's ten-race card.

The trip should not be a problem for any of the four contestants as all of them can stay till the cows come home.

Of the four, three — Star Marquess, Native Knight & Bling — had run together a month ago in the Grade 3, Maharaj Jiwajirao Scindia Trophy finishing fifth, sixth & seventh respectively, but the fact that barely a length separated the trio on that occasion suggests that today’s contest could head for a thrilling finish, with the fourth horse, Swift Memories, capable of adding twist to the pace of the race.

I expect Bling, trained by Sanjay Kolse and to be ridden by A Sandesh, to win from Native Knight. First race at 1.30 pm.
