PARAMOUR(3)-WIN

People here often discuss as to which is the worst centre for racing and often Mysore would be the choice of many, I have often said that Bangalore can not be far behind since the same type of people abide in the two near by centres and these people share the same traits amongst many other things.What happened yesterday is a pointer to the same.
