A FLEETING THOUGHT AT THE STING

Monday, January 23, 2012

Many years ago I was really taken in by the plot of the moovie "THE STING". It showed real cunning in racing and is a much watch movie for racing fans. Also in my life I have been fortunate to raed most of the fascinating books written by the jumps jockey DICK FRANCIS who had first hand knowledge of the inside details of the deeds and minds of people associated with racing in Europe and he came out with amazing tales of how people plan and often succed in fooling the racing system.

With no intent to hurt anybody's sentiments or reputation, the script of the recntly run Indian Classics INDIAN 1000 Guineas & INDIAN OAKS makes me reminiscent about the books of the above mentioned rider cum author.

SMASHING with an immacable record and form was favored to win the 1000 Guineas and horses like ALMA MATER and othewrs were considered to be ordinary in comparison based on breeding, opposition faced and so on. However the race was run totally against the script presumed by most and SMASHING was found to be in trouble and hugging on to the rails even at two furlong marker, the rider also lost his stick in the confusion as the public watched in awe as the other horse from the stable who was at big odds started to eat up ground like a champion and finished well to cover many lengths in the last scramble. The owners must have made a killing at the odds.

All the hoopla in the stables was focussed on the preparation and breeding and what not of the top contenders for the OAKS and now ALMA MATER looked to be a cut above all. One of the top foreign jockey rides her and draws most of people's money onto the fancied one. The race run will show an amazing turn around, SMASHING who was available at killing odds has no problems in staying the trip of 50 % extra than when she floundered in Guineas and shows tremendous liking for this trip and goes awy with a turn of foot to amaze all except who may have plotted this run. The favored ALMA MATER is found well back most of the time and then runs into traffic problems under a master of the big races and appears on the scene only when the winner has gone well away. It must have been a good gamblefor the owners and connections of the failed favorite of the Guineas.

For years I have been suggesting in my humble way the need for grouping horses belonging to the same connections as is done in advanced countries in the world. Why leave people fumong with doubts and what not. The DOOSRA game is repeated in our racing centres with repeated regularly and this is a menace which spoils the image of this fine sport of whic I am an avid fan.

The mock race over 1800m was won with ease and the only problem may be lack of maturity.

1. DOUBLE DIAMOND is a well bred from the top trainer who has worked handsomely and should score. WORD OF HONOUR showed improvement in last run. MACHALA has a negative jockey, the horse has been a disappointment. Look out for SOLID ROCK who has come down a lot and should be running for money.

DOUBLE DIAMOND-WORD OF HONOUR-SOLID ROCK.

2. SCARLATTI ran disappointingly under a top jockey last time. SILVER BIRCH has been primed up for the race and has the good breeding to win. WIND OF THE NORTH is by the top sire and has looked a good type in works, first run may go against him. CAPITAL ATTRACTION looks improved in tracks. SECRET WEAPON is being urged for response in mornings.

SILVER BIRCH-WIND OF THE NORTH-SCARLATTI.

3. SPIRIT OF MERCY was leading well into the straight last time, may go all the way in this suspect field. KALINGA STAR has earned his corn bill with a fluent bill, may be going easy for next six months. MAGDALENA is a well bred sister to black types ONASSIS & HIGHLAND CROWN, has been trained well, the choice of jockey is suspect in first run. FLASH FORWARD was a half money favorite who failed to collar the free running leader last time, has form though.

SPIRIT OF MERCY-FLASH FORWARD-MAGDALENA.

4. OCEAN ODDYSSEY is showing good speed in works and the jockey has a chance here. HEAVENLY PRIZE will find the penalty difficult to handle. STANTACULAR and WILD IMAGINATION from the same stables have good chance of springing a fast one.

OCEAN ODDYSSEY-WILD IMAGINATION-HEAVENLY PRIZE.

5. ETESIAN is a nicely bred who is on the up, note the rider switch. OCEAN GIRL has labored in most of her runs, a tough task here. AWESOME SMILE looks tough for repeat, watch trend. MISHRI has not been tracked even once, the trainer knows best, last run at Pune was suggestive.

ETESIAN-MISHRI-OCEAN GIRL.

6. ATTILA is over raced, got beat near the post. SIACHEN has worked very well and can score. ANCIENT WONDER won over a shorter trip and now added yards are going to be to his advantage. PORTRUSH is a gutsy old one who scores at good odds, can upset. ELIZABETH was given a laid back ride as ATTILA was being tried, today it may be the reverse.

ELIZABETH-SIACHEN-ANCIENT WONDER.

7. FOLLOW THE DREAM is a speedy one with a rookie. MOUNTAIN TREASURE is a top bread who was easy in his winning strides, will be fighting out. STRINGOFMYHEART has a weak jockey, tracks are good. JOSEPHINE is by a top sprinting sire, watch out with this rider. AFLAME won a fast race, , looks difficult to repeat. HOTTIE is the older one to upset.

MOUNTAIN TREASURE-JOSEPHINE-AFLAME.

8. VISIONAIRE was backed singularly yet managed to get beat, take your chance again as the extra yards will suit. REMINISCING is a difficult horse to handle, has poor record, rider has his job cut out. SAVAGE GARDEN went down fighting, trip suits. ADVENTURER is the lone ride for this rider, trainer likes to try his horses.

VISIONAIRE-ADVENTURER-SAVAGE GARDEN.


DAYS BEST===SILVER BIRCH
