CAPTAIN’S LOVER-WIN. LEONARDO-Place.

4. POLISH PATRIOT has come up in last two season’s, the jockey is new, can not be considered seriously. BLINK has run well to be in reckoning. SOBERANO goes over pet trip, has worked well. SHOYGUNN is showing fluency and should be inviting based on last good 2nd. CHINTZ has the rider to hit the front and out run the lot..

SHOTTGUN-WIN. CHINTZ-Place.

5. PERFECT ANALYSIS has not been able to live up to his billing, may be bet upon since the trainer is doing good with gambles. REFRESH has good chance here. FLIP YOUR DESTINY is a good handicapper, has won 4 races. STAR LEAGUE is still searching for first win, has a decent r rider..

REFRESH-Both ways.

6. LOVE ME TENDER is showing out in trials, will be fancied by the betting stable. SPARK OF GALAXY is tracking fine. FANTABULOUS STAR goes over the pet trip, has a chance to do well at good odds. KARSINI is a well bred waiting for the gamble call, may be it is the day.

BRAAVO FOR KABINI CUP

Friday, November 19, 2010

BANGALORE RACES

1. AFRICAN QUEEN is best bred and tracking extremely well and should be fancied ahead of MID TOWN MAGIC who is working fast and has a try jockey. PURPLE GLOW is by a good sire but is looking soft from gates and tracks. DIAMOND FLAME may place as the sire looks hopeful.

2. AILSA has not run for long and the jockey will have his task cut out on this one. SEVEN HEAVEN had finished on nicely to the good type in last run and should be supported each way here.

3. SAVVY CONCEPT, SEVEN STAR are both plodders and have failed often to be kept away from. RIP VAN WINKLE is well bred and may have come to hand with the old and good trainer and it maty be worth the chance to have a double bet on this one.

4. BRAAVO is working extremely well and should win from SPARK OF SOLITAIRE who threw a strong challenge to EAGLE CLAWS in the last run.

5. APPOLONAIRE has credentilas to win at decent odds, the trainer is like his father, looses on favorites and wins at good odds. KRIPA belongs to a most dubious trainer and may win if there is serious effort on the teams part to be honest. GLITERRATO is an in out running type, may surprise.

6. ELUSIVE WAY sees the return of the foreign jockey for this high costing and fashinable trainer. The horse looks good here. MOOVES GOOD ENOUGH has not been permitted to run on merit at timews. SIMPLY RED should be the one to put up a fight. A return of the aging Krishnan on AMAZER is really amazing, he is a spirited fellow.

STAR WARRIOR FOR SIR CHARLES FORBES TROPHY

Thursday, November 18, 2010

MUMBAI RACES


1. SADDLER’S RULE has often given indication of winning but still remains a maiden, the long stretch here should be of help in this poor field. REINSTATE has age on side, looks very tough for repeat. EQUALITY has been a let down. The threat emanates from URUJ who is tracking well and can run for money if he breaks out well.

URUJ/ SADDLER’S RULE-JODI

2. RAN BANKA has not performed for long, today he gets the top rider to show out. TATTENHOE has been tried a number of times last season, is a fringe horse, may do well with allowance jockey. BLADES OF GLORY has handicap chance.

RAN BANKA-WIN

3. ENDLESS HORIZON is a well bred who is tracking fine. LYRICAL SYMPHONY showed out in mocks, should run well .MOONLIGHT BEAUTY is vastly improved since the last run .

LYRICAL SYMPHONY TO ENDLESS HORIZON-JODI.

4. SERENITY is a speedy one, this trainer just doesn’t work his horses on tracks? Not a betting proposition despite the weak field . RIVER BLITZ is working fast and should do well. BATISTA needs to be given this run, has not run for long, the rider is weak. DANTE ROSSETI is the first runner from this new and unheard of trainer, the horse is stepping down in trip.

RIVER BLITZ-Both ways.

5. SUPERIOR QUEST is there on the tracks everyday, should do well if the extra 200m are not a bother. ELOISE has to improve to be in money here. STAR WARRIOR was a reasonable 4th in Derby, looks good at these weights.

STAR WARRIOR-WIN. SUPERIOR QUEST-Place.

6. DARE DEVIL , a brother to SKY DRIVE is looking speediest in tracks after the last easy run. HIAWATHA is tracking fluently and should be in thick of it . OUR CHIEFTAIN is full brother to VIVA LA VIDA, may show out. LAKE COMO has been given number of gates, the full sister to black type QUEST FOR CASH has a chance. MARTINIQUE is from a speedy dam line, the full sister to EKHABINSKYA needs a shorter trip. SWEET MEMORIES is by the fine black type mare who gave us SECRET MEMORY as her first foal who went on to win Pune Derby, the filly needs to be watched.

DARE DEVIL-Place.

7. EYE OF THE STORM was mostly in money in Pune, may get switched off now. DRAMA QUEEN has an outside chance. LEGIONNAIRE is showing speed in tracks. ENCHANTED has to beat the penalty. SATYAMEV JAYTE, an aptly named horse can build up on initial run, has the looks of doing well.

DELHI RACES


1. POMMERY is speedy and in form, will try to force the pace. GENIOUS BOY should provide the jockey his first win , he is also allegedly the “benami” owner of this horse. KHAMAKHYA ran easy last time, has tracked well. YARE will continue to interest the punters with place proposition.

GENIOUS BOY-WIN. YARE-Place

2. SIROCCO was surprisingly bet last time against youngsters and as expected ran way behind. He has a poorer opposition today. RESILIENCE looks much better placed against the in form NONIOS, the mock attempt was good. KIANA was a short priced failed favorite in last attempt, should win at cramped odds if there is no hanky panky from the gambling stable’s side.

KIANA-WIN. SIROCCO-Place

3. MASTER BLASTER has been impressive, won well last time as a favorite, the top weight and distance is a worry. JOVIAL won a 14oo m all the way, the distance will be too much now. KOHINOOR BEAUTY was an unlucky looser and needs to be supported despite the steepness of the trip.

KOHINOOR BEAUTY/ MASTER BLASTER-JODI Or the First named for win.

4. GO WITH THE FLOW has disappointed in last couple of runs. BENEDICTUS belongs to a cunning trainer, was not ON last time being a favorite, will win if odds suit. STEEL FORCE has an outside chance based on handicap. FOROOZAN has been given easy runs, can upset.

FASCINATING MEMORY- WIN. DESTINED PRINCE-Place

6. POWER HOUSE has a decent chance to win, ignore last easy run. SAM ALDO has a good chance to beat the first named on handicap, the rider is doping so far this season. ABSOLUT is a one paced animal, the allowance jockey has to do well to goad him on. UNICORN has been on the tracks for long, watch?. HUGE PRICE has a chance to place.

POWER HOUSE-WIN. EAT -ABSOLUT

CONSTANTINA-WIN

3. A straight fight between SNOW BLAZE and INDOMITABLE who is being ridden by a mediocre jockey.

INDOMITABLE-WIN

BULLET-WIN

5. RED TABASCO has the good rider , last run was badly interfered with. AWESOMENESS has physical problems as he is sparingly raced, no tracks. DANCING GLANCES can win as a good thing if ridden close to the fence.

THEIR LITTLE SISTER-Place. Eat-CARRIBEAN QUEEN

IMMENSE FOR KEMPEGOWDA CUP

Saturday, November 13, 2010

BANGALORE RACES


1. SEGOMO stands tall in this set up. JACK O LANTERN, YOU'RE ROCKING and PRINCESS COUP have chance to place.

SEGOMO-WIN

2. CAVALARY CHARGE was put off by the grassy conditions in summer, he always tracks fast and looks to resume winning ways with the foreign jockey. The main challenger should be HEAT HAZE who was impressive in Mysore.

CAVALARY CHARGE-WIN

3. SKY TRAIN had won his last start all the way and is bound to be in the fray as he is working well. UNLEASHED was an impressive winner who maintains good form. SMART WAYS can run well here, I do not think DUCHESS OF YORK is ready yet.

SKY TRAIN-Both ways.

4. JAANVI was most disappointing in last run, may rebound.KIRTLING is a got abroad who has a poor jockey, may be going easy. MATIAS with this rider in top form looks good. A SHOOTING STAR has worked well.

MATIAS-WIN

5. SALONI has an allowance jockey and that is a disadvantage here. SKY DIVER is looking fit. CLEAR MANDATE has been eye catching in tracks, should be the one all have to catch.ELITE LAND has come to hand late and is now goimg to run better.

ELITE LAND-Place

6. SWEET TIMER has the jockey to deliver if ridden up front. SUN GOLD should run well. LAD ZONE is pleasing in works. MAN DOWN UNDER is always running with this useless jockey, the trainer knows best, the horse is prepared.

SWEET TIMER-WIN

7. IMMENSE looks good despite the frightful behaviour prior to the annulled Derby. He ran well in mocks and should be running at short odds in this poor field. SPEAR HEAD has gone down with the number of outings, may place. RADICAL FORCE has impressed in Mysore and should be a good place bet. OBAN is having a decent jockey

RADICAL FORCE-Place

8. VIRTUOSO is coming around, has a rookie at top weight. BRUNETTA is single paced, can make it in this company. JORIKI has worked well. CORLEONE led into the final furlong in last run, has the rider to go all the way here.

AZTEC GOLD was given a deliberately loosing ride to facilitate the winning of BALMORAL CASTLE for the scheming owner, has a good chance now. SUNSPIRIT has been meticulously worked by Mrs Silva, looks good , trip is the only bother.

SUNSPIRIT-WIN. Cover Bet-AZTEC GOLD

APRILLIA FOR RAJYOTSVA TROPHY

Friday, November 12, 2010

BANGALORE RACES


1. ANNA is definitely going to attract maximum attention as she has handicap in favor and the tracks are good. ADONIS is tracking well and should place. LAD DIVA is the other one who should be running well as she impressed in gates. SECRETARY GENERAL returns to racing after injury.

ANNA –WIN

2. GUN POWDER is showing lots of eagerness in tracks but is conceding weight to same age group. HI LIFE is going over a suspect trip, the sire has only sprinting type winners so far. FANTABULOUS STAR has a handicap chance. SMART EXOTIC has a good rider.

AVOID-HI LIFE == FANTABULOUS STAR-Place

3. The name of the horse is actually apt for the trainer, GLUTEUS MAXIMUS was pulled in summers, an enquiry was held and forgotten, now the horse has worked well to be a favorite as all other horses have very mediocre riders and credentials. Difficult to say who will beat him. SUGRIV with a bad rider was also a deliberately kept behind runner in summers and was enquired upon? I am tempted by the tracks of FIORUCCI but the rider has been most ordinary. ATTATURK goes for 51st run, has an outside chance if backed.

AVOID-GLUTEUS MAXIMUS == FIORUCCI- Both ways

4. TANZANITE is tracking well and has a decent jockey. STILL WILL is showing speed in trials. SUPERB STYLE should fight out with the good jockey trying all out for his father. LADS GLADIATOR is the dark un to topple all.

JODI—SUPERB STYLE X LADS GLADIATOR

5. LIBERTY SHIP may find it difficult here. SUNDANCE KID is tracking well. GOOD COMPANION is due to earn place money. ALEXANDER HELIOS by the very speedy mare has a decent chance.

ALEXANDER HELIOS-WIN

6. ABOLINE is tops in handicap, the trip is fine and the horse has tracked well, weights are a worry. TOMSK should run well as the favorite jockey of the horse is riding. APRILLIA is the one who is catching the attention with very forward works, last time it did not stay the extended trip and that is why COULEUR ROUGE the stable mate ran ahead.

APRILLIA-Both ways.

7. ALPHA BABY has been given loosing rides, the trainer is most unreliable and may pull a rabbit out of the hat here. SPARK OF ISIS is in form, looks better than CHRONICLE. SIX SHOOTER has been a big failure and may be backed on breeding and hopeful l last run. BUCEPHALUS can scare if he jumps out well. DRAMATIC DANCER had won well and can handle the penalty.

EAT-SIX SHOOTER == Place-ALPHA BABY

8. ASTOUNDING GALLOP looks in top condition from the tracks and must be backed as a good thing. ONE LIFE TO LOVE looks improved, the last win was good. ICE BOUND has beaten ONE LIFE TO LOVE before and has a chance. CROWN EMPRESS is a well bred maiden, may run well.

ASTOUNDING GALLOP-WIN

ASHWA PRATAP FOR GOVERNOR'S TROPHY

DELHI RACES


1. NASEEBDAR is an aged horse who has won 3 races in Western Circuit, may run well. BLACK VIRGIN is a youngster who comes into reckoning based on last run and the very weak field. RED REEF was under the whip but failed narrowly to NONIOS who won again, should deliver now. PRINCE RAILCO is a winner of two races who is down in scales.

RED REEF-WIN

2. SUCCESSFUL DREAM is looking fit, may need this run. ABSOLUT should build up on last forward attempt. DAZZLING LIGHT has a chance to place, looks tough for a win. JOHNNY BRAVO with this jockey can go all way.

EAT-DAZZLING LIGHT OR JOHNNY BRAVO-WIN

3. ASHWA PALLAVI looks better than ASHWA PAYALIA but the placement of riders is otherwise. DIVINE GRACE has improved with last run FEARLESS TIGER is speedy and has weights in favor.

FEARLESS TIGER-Place.

SPLENDID MAN-Both Ways.

EAT-SHUBH SHUBH OR ASHWA PRATAP –Both ways.

6. DOON BOY goes over the pet distance. RISING PRINCESS is unreliable mare. BEST OF LUCK should do well again. BENEDICTUS has a rookie rider, can win based on last run.

BENEDICTUS-WIN

NOTE---BANGALORE RACES POSTING WILL BE IN DUE TIME

FANAA FOR GOC DELHI AREA CUPDELHI RACES

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

DELHI RACES

1. LITTLE CUT has already won last month and despite the weak field may not win again though the rider is good. INDIAN BRIDE has an outside chance being a youngster. SPICY MOVE is tracking well. YARE impressed in last run and should be the one to do well in early part of the season.

YARE-Place

2. The number of runners from the same connections is a big indicator here and indicates a strong chance for SPARLING GOLD to repeat and beat ROSE who is tracking well. CLAS impressed in gates and may place.

SPARKLING GOLD-WIN

3. MOONGATE MAN will be fancied to repeat based on last impressive win, the rider has been most ordinary here, afraid to take the initiative. The younger and speedy DAZZLE has been well prepared and given a run, should score. FLYING MAJESTY is tracking well. KATMAI has an outside chance to place, is unreliable type.

DAZZLE-WIN

4. FASCINATING MEMORY has come to hand and won well in last outing to be strongly fancied again. The only horse who has an outside chance is class 3 winner at Bangalore, FANAA . She has come down in scales and is tracking for the day, the rider is capable to go all the way. MOOVIE QUEEN is speedy and at low weights.

FANAA- Both ways.

5. DREAM DEBUT is tracking well and has a rookie who is yet to win. SUDDEN IMPACT is in good form, handicap is stiff. BEATRICE won well and may be tried again. TAKE A CHANCE is best on handicap but the horse has disappointed so far?

EAT-SUDDEN IMPACT if favorite. TAKE A CHANCE –Place

6. LITTLE MASTER is the form horse with a good jockey. ASHWA PARINDA has been prepared and given a run. BLACK THUNDER may fight out, the gates were impressive. SANGREAL has an allowance jockey to place again.

ASHWA PARINDA-Both ways.

EINSTEIN FOR KRISHNARAJA TROPHY

Saturday, November 6, 2010

BANGALORE RACES


1. The race appears to have two serious contenders; ie, MARK OF GENIOUS who had won all the way under an allowance jockey and SIX GUN SMITH who is looking good in tracks and has a good dam. The other horse who could fight for money is YOU’RE ROCKING who was pulled by jockey in summers in STUD MUFFIN’S race.

SIX GUN SMITH-Both ways .

2. SILVER SCEPTRE and YOU’RE MY LIFE both placed for first time in their last respective runs and should be on the job being youngsters. CLASSICAL CHARM has run very poorly so far to be considered despite good tracks.SMART EDITION has the rider to attract attention, has tracked well also. CHAMPS ELYSEES has run some close races in early part of career and looks to be in fine nick.

CHAMPS ELYSEES-Place

3. ABNOBA is a speedy one with a rookie, has tracked well. SPARK OF SILVER has no tracks?, looks negative on comparison. SUPER GOLD may place, impressed in gates. SURE SPEED won well on initiation, was considered a decent type, has come back to form, can give the top jockey his first win on return from disgrace.

SURE SPEED-WIN

4. A straight fight between EMERALD and FLAMEBACK. EMERALD has run with better types, has a nasty habit of swishing the tail. Other horses have no good jockeys or tracks or form.HARD TO PIN DOWN is tracking well, the jcokey is below par.

EMERALD-WIN

5. EINSTEIN is aged but has beaten good types before and looks better than other aged ones here. SOBERANO comes at par with the first mentioned but has a lousy jockey. CHINTZ has speed, the jockey is good and has won on this one last time, distance is sharp. STRING ALONG goes for a prepatory race for richer races hereafter, the present distance and the handicap according to me does not interest me at all. Another big negative factor is that the owner likes to take negative bets on his horses if odds are short.

EINSTEIN-Place or EAT-STRING ALONG

6. EAGLE CLAWS had started her career impressively, beaten SIACHEN, may be in a made up race, then gone out of form. Present tracks are suggestive of fine form, can win. JUNO is a good one from this mediocre sire, has speed to worry all. BUGATTI has gates problems, the jockey does not install any confidence. MOOVES GOODENOUGH was never in the fray at Mysore, can upset.

JUNO-Place or EAGLE CLAWS-WIN

7. YOU’RE KISSES DUE looks in top condition from tracks, has a strong jockey, weights are a worry. MR AMBASSADOR will like the underfoot conditions as also BATON ROUGE who is badly out of handicap. GLITERATTO is a moody one who is tracking well and has handicap in favor.

JODI— YOU’RE KISSES DUE X GLITERATTO

8. MISSY MOONLIGHT has not raced for long, may have been discreetly prepared. SKY DRIVE is working well. NECTAR CROWN has problems, does not look fit to me. ALLEGRO may place again.

MISSY MOONLIGHT-Both ways.

THE ROCK FOR JAWAHAR LAL NEHRU MEMORIAL CUP

Thursday, November 4, 2010

DELHI RACES


1. The need to reap in benefits when horse is in form is apparent in the case of KEMROCK. Too soon after the last two wins and the backbreaking weight are negatives. FIRE CRACKER is a speedy type who has been given an easy run, has the allowance jockey to deliver. SECRET AFFAIR had won his last start in Mumbai, has a handicap chance, the trainer is most unreliable, watch?

FIRE CRACKER-Both ways.

2. NONIOS is a similar case of trying to cash in form, the present trip is very sharp. LITTLE MASTER ran well enough to be in consideration again. BENEDICTUS with this rider is best left alone. QUAND MEME can run a forward race.

LITTLE MASTER-Place.

3. QUALITY ASSURANCE ran a poor race last time. RED CAT has tracked fast and ran well enough to be considered here. THE ROCK has spent last year in wilderness, can start winning again as he is definitely much better than these pretenders.

EAT-RED CAT

4. REAL SCOTCH is running on all race days and has some form to go by. CHARG AWAY has been well prepared and given a run. BEACH RAIN comes into reckoning on last run, doesn’t compare favorably with REAL SCOTCH though, has age on side.

BEACH RAIN-WIN

5. YOUTHFUL REACTION had led well till the last 300 m in last run, this rider can take him all the way. ELEGANTIA ran well enough in last attempt to be in contention. Ignore the last run of GO WITH THE FLOW, has a good chance in this set up. IMAGINE is the best performed of the last season, has been denied tracks for fitness.

YOUTHFUL REACTION- Both ways.

6. JOVIAL was an easy winner, has a stiff penalty. YOU’RE THE TOUCH was an impressive finisher in last run, should do well now. LILY looks doubtful over this trip. MASTER BLASTER is tracking well, has the fly in jockey.

MASTER BLASTER-WIN

JEWEL STAR FOR EQUINES CUP

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

DELHI RACES


1. ODDS N EVENS is bred for speed, has been given an easy run. CLASSIC N MYSTIC ran a forward race and is at an attractive handicap. GREEN RIBBON trounced the field in a good attempt and is at low weights now.

CLASSIC N MYSTIC-WIN

2. KEMROCK was an impressive winner and a good gamble for the connections, the horse can definitely repeat as he has come to hand. POWER HOUSE was a notable runner in last 3rd to POMMERY. MASTER SPEED has a good apprentice rider and will be in demand in the ring as the connections are doing very well this season.

KEMROCK-Both ways

3. SILVER GIRL may build up on last effort. BEST OF LUCK is working fast. MURBAN is down in scales, has worked well and can upset. GREEN SEALS has a lousy jockey. TALENT CRAFT is unreliable type, the tracks are suggestive.

EAT FAVORITE. MURBAN-Place

4. JEWEL STAR is impressive in works, has been forward runner. PERPETUAL GLORY is a well bred who could not be sold by the breeder and hence is racing here, may be having flaws, won at the end of the season in a bunch of ordinary runners. Not worth investing on. BACHA QUERO is a costly purchase gone bad case, may run well in opener.

JEWEL STAR-Place.

5. GLORIOUS BOY has a rookie riding after the last try. FEARLESS TIGER has been prepared and then placed in last run, can win now. AIR FORSE ONE will be ridden on suffering once again, should place. MAUTHARMA was a poor runner last time, made to run again so soon?

FEARLESS TOGER-WIN

6. OEF TOUBA was a decent 2nd to SHUBH SHUBH who defied the penalty to win handsomely again, the deduction is obvious. The rival should be SUBROOS who goes at bottom weight after some good preparation. The well bred REAL SMASHER may be out for a feel only. SPLENDID MAN does not measure up against SUBROOS based on previous encounters.

OEF TOUBA -WIN

PERFORMANCE OF SIRES FOR THREE YEAR OLDS IN 2010

Monday, November 1, 2010

PERFORMANCE OF SIRES FOR THREE YEAR OLDS IN 2010

1. The 2009-2010 season culminated with the last race held at Hyderabad on 25th of Oct. Racing activity sees a total break at all centres except for Delhi which has a most backward approach towards the sport due to reasons unknown. Apart from the plum events during the winter season, interest of race lovers will be on the juveniles who will be initiated in racing at all centres . In fact a couple of races for the juveniles have already taken place during the last few days of Pune season. The break of a few days provides us opportunity to have a look at the performance of the sires in the year gone by, specially with reference to the three year olds which is a pointer to the young stock of two years who will be initiated to the tracks in the coming winters. A good number of two year olds are already working in the morning tracks and would be active soon on the turf.
2. The early value of a juvenile race horse is primarily judged from the Sire’s potential and established record with the previous crops and his potential to produce classic/graded race winners. The focus remains on winners in the early part of the season as winners of maiden races can then on progress for the tougher competition and higher classification .Sires are known to provide early winners or precocious stock and are preferred for this important trait of theirs. The structure of racing in India provides for such early juvenile winners to pick up better stakes than when they race in handicap races. Hence a lot of attention is given to the Sires who perform well with offspring’s who come to hand quickly and promise more achievements in early stages of their career.

3. Let us now take a look at the performance of the sires for the three year olds during the gone by racing calendar. A total of 1497 live foals ( 56 are got abroads) were reported for the year 2007 by the stud Book Of India publication “Return Of The Mares” and due to various causes a small percentage of these did not race. Out of these about 125 foals from stud farms catering mainly for Chennai and Ooty racing centres from the 5 sires located in that zone ( ALWAYS A RAINBOW, FOYER, MAGISTRETTI, PREDAPPIO and STAR SUPREME ) are not being considered as coverage at these centres is not reported by media and the racing activity is insignificant there. In rest of the country about 365 of these three year olds (listed against their respective sires) have gone on to win races, a small percentage indeed.

4. A total of 142 sires have sired the crop of 2007 out of which 38 sires stood outside the country and the foals were got abroad. 53 resident and 18 standing abroad sires have got winners so far. For record sake as of date 122 registered sires are located in various stud farms and private yards.The details of the winning sires are discussed hereafter. The number of winners and the total produce are given in brackets. The black type winners are listed in capital letters and the black type performers are in slanted italics. The number of wins of more than one race are given in brackets against the names respectively.


1. AJAAD (4/15)- Diamond Caves(2), Buggati (2), Alexander Square(2) and Super Gold(2).
2. ALNASR ALWASHEEK(15/38)- STRING ALONG(4), AWARDING(2), Rapture of Victory(4), Foreign Exchange , Sun Elegance, Andromaque, Ballibay, Smart Ways, Golden Quest, Blackjack(2) Elite Land, Running Sun, Alybro, Angel’s Pursuit, and Ashwa Prerna.
3. ANSBACH(2/7)- Laguinnas and Flying Majesty.

Comments:-
(a) . DIFFIDENT has been the most well performed of the lot this year. In his eighth crop he continues to be precocious and versatile. Limitations of stamina is a factor which may deny top labels for his crop. He may get some speedy ones to perform like KERINGDINGAN or STAR FUTURE in shorter versions.
(b) PLACERVILLE and RAZEEN, the two top sires (Hall Of Fame Sires) during the last decade are both aging and the crops are on the decline. One needs to wait for the impressive MAGESTERIAL to come up trumps on the big scene. CAMACHO impressed a lot in his last win and can come up as he has staying abilities in abundance. STAR WARRIOR and STAR EMPIRE have not lived upto the initial promise.
(c) AL NASR ALWASHEEK (Hall Of Fame Sire) continues to be impressive and has stated to go up on the stud farms higher rated Placerville. STRING ALONG & BLACKJACK needs to be considered for progress.
(d) EMERALD CAT has emerged as the impressive sire, his produce is precocious and speedy. He is yet to produce a classic type, MACCHIPICHU is the one who has scope.
(e) BURDEN OF PROOF (Hall Of Fame Sire) has produced flock of winners but does not appear to have any serious classic contender, SIACHEN is a classic hopeful. CARLA, CLEAR MANDATE and EAGLE CLAWS are progressive in outlook.
(f) CHINA VISIT is consistent, has produced some useful off springs, MOONLIGHT ROMANCE is a good one.
(g) GASWAR has done very well in last couple of years. IMMENSE is on the up and KOHINOOR WISH is the most prolific winner so far. ASTOUNDING GALLOP is showing some promise.
(h) GLORY OF DANCER will be prominent in winters on hard surfaces, ELOISE and BEAUTIFUL STRANGER in top competition will do well. ELIZABETH is an impressive sprinter.
(i) IKHTYAR’S produce should be watched with interest, they are on the up, BERLUSCONI , PETRA and KILMINJARO should do well.
(j) ROYAL KINGDOM is another consistent one, SUN KINGDOM and PALLAZIO GRAZOLI have capabilities.
(k) MAJOR IMPACT, MR MELLON , SENURE and WARRSHAN will have there share of fine sprinters, they have limitations of stamina in their blood. STORMETTE, STARRER and KHURSANIYA are appealing.
(l) ONTARIO who has done very well in last few years does not have any outstanding runner this time though his share of winners in sprints will always be appreciable.
(m) STEINBECK (Hall Of Fame Sire) has aged and hardly gets to cover mares.
(n) The freshman sires of the last couple of years have been quite ordinary. The good one EMERALD CAT passed away early, EPICENTRE appears to be one who has a fair share of winners and belongs to a stud which has done very well at Hyderabad and the crop of this stallion appears to be following the trend. HURRICANE STATE has performed pathetically in monsoons, needs to be given time though I feel his crop will not get longer distances. INHABITANT has been pretty mediocre. ITAQUERE POWER and SUSSEX may get winners at lower centres like Delhi/ Kolkata etc.


FRESHMAN SIRES FOR THE YEAR 2010-11



(a). DANEHILL STAR By Danehill x Princess Tracy/Ahonoora has a ltd crop of 8 foals to make any impression in the first year. The sire has a strong male line being the grand son of NORTHERN DANCER and has the prolific sire of the sires DANEHILL .
(b). EUROPION by Nuryev x Cinnamon Rose / Trempolino looks quite ordinary in breeding. The racing performance is good and he has a small crop of 19.
©. IMTIYAZ by Woodman x Shadayid / shaded is a well bred and decently performed sire who comes to a top farm and should evoke a lot of interest as he is likely to replace STORM TROOPER who was quite average performer at a stud which is feeding racers at the prime racing centres. The sire has done well by winning over 1400-2100 metres and is a sturdy performer on the European race tracks.He has a reasonable crop of 21.
(d). MAMBO MINSTREL by Mr Prospector x Minstrella /The Minstrel has average credentials and belongs to a stud farm with ltd potential. He has 17 foals in first crop.
(e) . OATH by Fairy King x Sheer Audacity/Troy has already had two runners on the track due to early arrival of the foals. The sire is a stayer who won Epsom derby and had ltd success in stud duties at Japan. The sire looks good to me and like most other sons of the incomparable NORTHERN DANCER should be watched with lots of interest as he has a large crop also. Plus he is likely to get some well bred mares at the famous stud. The stud farm has shown faith in him as he has a large crop of 40 foals.
(f). QUEST STAR by Broad Brush x Tinac / Manila could not sustain the change and passed away after a short tenure at stud duties at the uncomfortable locales of Rajasthan. The sire was a versatile racer and a stayer to the core. The breeding is quite ordinary as there is nothing much from the grand sire side. He has 24 foals.
(g). REBUTTAL is by Mr Greeley x Reboot / Rubiano. In bred to Mr Prospector the grand son of the famous GONE WEST has a fairly large number (41) of foals. The performance of the sire is average and the first crop has its task cut out to prove themselves here.
(h). SUNDAY DOUBT by Sunday Silence x Pas De Response moved into a stud farm of repute which has been dogged with uncertainty due to loss of sires at regular intervals. The crop of late grand son of HALO should be of interest as he was from a very well established stout male line which has always been the main criteria of imports at this farm. The cross with GRAND DAM of Northern Dancer is very encouraging and may nick well with the available dams here.
