Calcutta: Trainer S.Padmanabhan’s hot favourite, Desert God, kept his date with the 2,400m Calcutta Derby Stakes, at the races, here, on Sunday.
The 6/10 publicchoice won the prized event with a degree of ease and in the process, pocketed a meaty winner’s purse of over Rs one crore. David Allan partnered the Burden of Proof-Running Flame son to twolength victory over trainer Vijay Singh’s trio of Multitude, Setaflame and Romantic Magic, who placed in the order named..
The pace in the race was moderate, allowing the four placed horses to gallop in a close proximity of Vijay’s another runner, Fly With The Wind, who did most of the donkeywork. However, Allan and Desert God remained unperturbed in the middivision and changed gears nearing the final turn. It was a smooth sailing for the favourite in the final furlong to prove that his Deccan Derby victory, during the monsoon season, was no fluke.
Desert God now leaves for Mumbai, to take a tilt at the Indian Derby, the richest race in the country, billed for the first Sunday in February.
The Alokananda Stakes, the young fillies’ Classic, was easily claimed by trainer Manvendra Singh’s 14/10 favourite, Interstellar (S. John). The Top Clas-Eternal Spirit daughter established a threelength from the start of the race and she triumphed handsomely.
The day’s opener, the 1,200m Telegraph Cup, was picked up by trainer Javed Khan’s 8/1 shot, Ascend (A. Sandesh) who also won from the start, lasting out to beat the evenmoney favourite, Ashi Nangsey.
Javed and Sandesh combinations again found the target in the Romantic Memory Cup which was easily claimed by their runner, Make Way Fore Me.
The Derby-Day crowed, compared to last year, was much larger. The totalisator, too, conducted a good business, though some in the official circles were disappointed
