Vijay crosses 1000-win mark

Calcutta: It was the victory of Dramatikos — in Saturday’s opener, the 1,600m Aazish Handicap — which fulfilled trainer Vijay Singh’s cherished dream of saddling 1000 winners. The trainer’s milestone, in fact, was the focus of attention during the felicitation ceremony, making the Calcutta Champions’ Sprint Trophy a stellar event. As expected, it was lifted by the hot-favourite, Romantic Fire.

Vijay was ecstatic when presented with a memento for his achievement. He thanked everyone, barring the Fourth Estate.
