SUMMERS AND HOPES OF RACING IN INDIA

Tuesday, May 11, 2021

 The pandemic situation in the country is scary but hopefully situation will improve next month onwards. The probability of racing in summer/monsoon season to start on time is dismally low yet one always hopes for normalcy in the country and the resumption of meaningful activities.

The probable dates for the racing to resume are during mid july.

Grapevine has it that the Ooty races are waiting for a nod from the freshly elected Govt and should the truncated season is allowed to resume this summer may see more racing at UDHAGAMANDALAM (Ooty) since parlays are on between BTC and MADRAS RACE CLUB about the possibility of having the Bangalore Summer season at this venue in later months.
