Itscaro, Benezeer to vie for Tattersalls Million
The continuous drizzle, which started early morning on Friday and continued unabated until late night, was welcome news for the residents of the Peshwa city; however, the same showers have put a question mark over the Saturday race card as some vital parts of the racecourse real estate is under water
Pune: The continuous drizzle, which started early morning on Friday and continued unabated until late night, was welcome news for the residents of the Peshwa city; however, the same showers have put a question mark over the Saturday race card as some vital parts of the racecourse real estate is under water. However, the authorities are hopeful if a credible source from the race club is to be believed, who told mid-day on the condition of anonymity, "If we have even a three-hour window of clear weather on Saturday morning, our monsoon track will ensure racing will go on smoothly."
The Tattersalls Million, slated as the feature event of the nine-race card, has ten 3y olds in the fray, but in all probability, it may turn out as a duel between Sunderji-trained Itscaro and Karanjawalla-trained Benezeer, both impressive winners in their last starts on this track. I expect Itscaro to emerge victorious.
