CALCUTTA RACES/ ALTERNATOR REVEALS OLD SPARKLE 
 
 
BY STAR RACER
 
Calcutta, Nov 15: 
Revealing his old sparkling form, the four-year-old classy colt Alternator lifted the Mayfowl Cup, today’s star event. In the process, the Razeen-Niche son not only overcame his substantial weight disadvantage against a five in-a-row winner Alyssum, he also left his owner-mate far behind to struggle to earn the second slot.

Keeping the 6-4 fancied runner off the pace till the final turn, Aslam Kader let go the Bharath Singh-trainee who produced his usual turn of foot in the home-stretch to win by two and half-a-lengths.

The Kalied Cup, the sporting event, was an easy picking for the Forley Rodrigues-trained The Stud, partnered by Nic Connorton. The Stud, however, had to win the race again in the stewards’ room following a objection lodged by Cristopher Alford riding the second placed Anntari. The objection, though over-ruled, appeared to be a frivolous one. It was Anntari who was seen to be leaning on to The Stud in the last furlong and it was Anntari again who shifted-in in the last 50m to squeeze Ballard Lady for room along the rails. Surprisingly jockeys Connorton and A. Imran Khan were made to pay fines of Rs 2,500 and Rs 1,000 respectively for Cristopher misadventure
