‘Hero’ outsprints all

Calcutta: Trainer Javed Khan’s speedy customer, Super Hero, outsprinted the opposition to win the 1,100m Eastern Command Cup, the main attraction in Saturday’s race card. Ridden by Imran Chisty, the five-year-old horse opened up a three length lead to frustrate the two fancied runners — Viva La Diva and the course favourite, Sunny Sue. Earlier, Chisty had helped Khan’s Broken Arrow and trainer Patrick Quinn’s Franenstein win their respective events.RESULTS
