Lockers Park posts upset win

Calcutta: Lockers Park, the lesser-fancied Bharath Singh-trainee, recorded an easy victory in the Gamble For Love Cup on Thursday. S. Rabani partnered the six-year-old gelding by Batzushka out of Fusion.

The Almanac Cup, the sporting event in the afternoonís race-card, was also claimed by an outsider, Kainat, thanks to jockey Md Amilís amateurish riding tactics on the half-money favourite, Brighter Future. Amil was seen slipping into a long lead from the start and also unnecessarily cutting pace with Common Spirit. As a result, the favourite was left with no energy to pull on nearing the final turn. Kainat was trained by Javed Khan.RESULTS
