City season from Friday Makybe Diva lifts Melbourne Cup

Calcutta: Although things did not work the desired way, the stewards of the Royal Calcutta Turf Club (RCTC) has signalled the start of the winter season from Friday. Weather gods have, of course, been kind since November 5, when the season was scheduled to start. However, the start was ruled out when a section of trainers showed reluctance to race on monsoon track. However, it may be too early to rule out the start on the winter track as a shower or two between now and Friday may, again, play the spoilsport.

RCTC would have liked to begin the winter season on a weekend and the Bangalore Turf Club (BTC), too, gave hope of such a possibility. However, with the Bangalore owner-trainers and race club fiasco taking a dramatic turn late on Monday night, things were back to square one.
