La Rondine for AC Ardeshir Trophy
La Rondine gets my vote on account of being the youngest (4 years) horse in the fray
The AC Ardeshir Trophy (Gr 3) is slated as the feature event of today's eight-race card at the Malalaxmi racetrack. Only five horses are in the fray, and even at a cursory glance, looks like a straight fight between the Vishal Gaekwad-trained La Rondine (S Zervan up) and the Nosher Cama-trained Bronx (PS Chouhan up).
Interestingly, only a neck had separated them when they last met over this trip at Pune less than three months ago, so the duel becomes all the more interesting. The joker in the pack is the Pesi Shroff-trained Costa Brava (P Trevor up) who, though not exactly suited to the mile trip, has been very well prepared.
La Rondine gets my vote on account of being the youngest (4 years) horse in the fray.
