Richie Rich lifts ‘Trial’

Calcutta: Riding a well-judged race, jockey Rutherford Alford partnered his father Richard’s trainee Richie Rich to an upset victory in the 1,400m Calcutta Colts Trial Stakes on Firday. Available 5-1 in the betting ring, Rutherford had the Batzushka-Grand Start three-year-old settled in the fourth berth before urging him to come with a fine finishing effort in the stretch-run.

In the sporting event, the Orange William Cup, Bharath Singh’s favourite Allodium beat his stablemate, Alcalde, narrowly after fighting a grim battle with him in the last furlong of the 1,400m race.
