(A) After an uneasy wait for most due to the uncertainty of events and circumstances at the Bangalore Race Club, it appears that finally racing for the very important summer season begins soon. Important because many young and exciting prospects from the local centre as well as the few who have come all the way from Mumbai and Hyderabad will be campaigning for some plum events and these races will be indicators for bigger events in the racing calendar of the country. Some of the stock from Mumbai is obviously demanding attention due to the recent performances there, however it is very difficult to analyze the chances of the Hyderabad ones as they are not so well bred and have not competed at a higher level. Yet the interesting fact is that each year some good ones from Hyderabad show their mettle and turn out to be good types.

Some good types who have already impressed and some who are looking good on paper are discussed below. These are likely to be hotly favored whenever they run.

She has produced HER EXCELLENCY, Poonawalla Breeder’s Million And Breeder’s Produce Stakes Winner, sprinters cup winner BRYCE CANYON and NOBLE EXECUTIVE who won the Juvenile’s Sprinter’s Million..
