Comedy of Errors wins

CALCUTTA RACING

Calcutta, Jan. 18: As expected, not only the 1,200m HSBC Cup sprint but also the entire day’s proceedings at the RCTC racecourse, today, turned out to be very exciting. The victory of a lesser fancied Comedy Of Errors, from trainer Richard Alford’s yard, in the star sprint, was a sensational effort. Ridden by the visiting jockey Imran Chisty, the Ajay Jalan-property had easy measure of three horses in the betting — Strengthtostrength, River Melody and Bold Chieftan.

Earlier in the Indian Champagne Stakes Andreno, a rank-outsider from trainer Vijay Singh’s yard had recorded a start-to-finish victory over his stable-mate and the course-favourite Thrilling Proposal, ridden by Cristopher Alford. As a result of their wins, the entire jackpot pool was carried over.
