Calorescence ‘Champion’

Calcutta: Honours were evenly shared between Vijay Singh and Daniel David, the two trainers who were helped by their respective stable-jockeys — B. Prakash and C. Alford — notch up a brace of winners apiece at the RCTC Thursday. However, Vijay struck where it mattered most — in the 2,000m Indian Champion Cup. The prestigious event was claimed. by his in-form champion filly Calorescence who, in the process, also equalled the course record time over the trip clocked last year by Among Men. The Derby failed-favourite, Nationalistic from Daniel’s yard, once again, disappointed while finishing third — behind a trusted, but aged galloper Allodium. Shining Jewel was the other winner saddled by Vijay in an eight-event card.

Daniel’s day started with the victory of Anokato who returned a comfortable winner of the 1,200m Republic Cup in the hands of Prakash. Prakash, however, had to fully stretch his charge Blushing Queen to win the lower division the Rising Star Plate. The upper division was won by Bharath’s brilliant filly Evangeline. Incidentally, Prakash was also associated with the victory of Errol Bhungard’s Midas Touch.
