Winter season from Friday

Calcutta: The winter edition of the Calcutta horseracing season is set to kick off from Friday. The 27-day season may see in excess of 365 horses testing their hooves during the five-month season, informed the state government nominated steward S. K. Bose, acting as ‘chief’ in the absence of general Shankar Roychowdhury, senior steward, RCTC, presently abroad.

The horse-strength has shot up significantly following a poor monsoon season that was concluded three weeks ago with about 200 horses. More than Rs 2.43 crore will be offered as stake money during the season.
