Calamint cashes in on rival tactics

Calcutta: Fully exploiting the rival campís tactics, jockey S. Shanker guided trainer Vijay Singhís Calamint to an easy victory in the Mysore Race Club Cup on Wednesday.

It was Daniel Davidís Dashing Chief, the 5-2 joint favourite ó with the stable-fancy Another Time ó who was made a sacrificial goat to draw advantage. Dashing Chief cut a hot-pace that would have suited Another Time and thus, was literally ridden into the ground. However, the ploy never worked as Another Time failed to quicken in the stretch-run and the last winterís classic filly just about managed a poor third.

If Daniel failed, his former deputy Errol Bhungard had much to collect by way of a rich treble notched up through Flying Dash, Royal Command and Sergeant Slipper in their respective events.
