For Moderate Investors, Ooty Racing Can Be Hunting GroundBy smart-still-poor-punter | 01-Apr-2019
It's going to be a 'brief vacation' for prime time racing soon, with Ooty races about to take over.
For a year or two now, the Madras Race Club seems to have been doing 'serious' business by offering a better quality racing. (Who can forget those days when MAM's horses used to win all the races, grabbing the first three places and leaving a Class V race alone to be faught among other stables?)
The heat conditions look more severe this year and not many are quite sure if Ooty season will even start as per schedule. But that's not the topic for discussion here though.
For those who have been relying on Bengaluru and Mumbai races, only to end up with big holes in their pockets, Ooty races could still provide some solace. That's because here everything is unpredictable. Bloodlines and work outs (if any?) certainly can make you have the last laugh.
I feel for moderate investors, Ooty racing can be a hunting ground. Jockey Umesh looks like picking up from where he left the last time.
