Madam Rich, a speedster sired by Phoenix Tower and trained by Prithviraj, delivered the most dominant performance of the day in the Dudhsagar Falls Plate.
She left her 11 rivals far behind, crossing the finish line with a staggering margin of over 10 lengths. Madam Rich's resounding victory must have brought immense relief to Prithviraj, who had been disheartened after the loss of All Attractive in the Mysore Dasara Sprint Championship.
Madam Rich, backed down from 5/2 to 11/10, seems unstoppable, and her rivals, like Isabelle, will have their work cut out in the weeks to come.
Despite the initial disappointment of Excellent Ray's loss, the Rajesh Narredu stable found redemption with Fondness Of You, who triumphed in the Jayant Shah Memorial Trophy.
Under the expert guidance of Akshay Kumar, Fondness Of You seized control at the distance post and held off a spirited challenge from Macron to claim victory. Tripitaka secured the third position ahead of Foi, with General Patton, trained by Azhar Ali, opting out of the event.
The opening day of the winter racing season showcased the unpredictability and excitement of the sport, leaving fans eager to witness more thrilling contests in the weeks ahead.">
