‘Sky’ wins 500th Classic for MAM

Calcutta: Classic Sky easily claimed the 2,400m Usha Stud Calcutta Oaks on Saturday, presenting her owner, M.A.M. Ramaswamy his 500th Classic winner. MAM, however, reacted with his usual calm to the feat when contacted by The Telegraph. “Luck has been very kind to me. I take this opportunity to thank all my jockeys and trainers who have helped me reach the milestone,”said the racing baron. Asked about his next target, he said: “I don’t believe in targets and I am not the kind who sets one.”

Another history was made by the Mumbai-based trainer, Arti Doctor, who became the first lady to train in the RCTC. She made her city debut on a winning note when Sea Monarch annexed the Twilight Lady Handicap. Asked if she was planning to switch base, from the RWITC to RCTC, Arti said: “I’m committed to complete the season. I also have an open mind about shifting base in future. I hope to get an encouraging result this season from my nine-horse string in the city.
