‘Glory’ wins thriller

Trainer S.Ganapathy’s heavily backed three-year-old filly, Flaming Glory, was hard-pressed to beat an equally fancied Rain Splasher in the 1,400m Speaker’s Cup on Saturday, the opening day of the Bangalore summer season. Jockey B.Prakash partnered the Placerville-Stately Home daughter to half-a-length victory over the S.Padmanabhan-trainee who was enjoying a 6kg pull over the winner. Four favourites obliged in the eight-event card.
