Umesh's poor run on fav "King's Black" must be probedBy smart-still-poor-punter | 11-May-2019
In today's Ooty races, the feeble ride produced by popular jockey C Umesh on hot favourite "King's Black" must be enquired. It was the second leg of the JP and was quoted at evens as could be seen from the book odds on live telecast. Right from the word 'go', the rider strongly held the last position, did not even bother a bit to move forward and finished last all the way. In sharp contrast, the second-in-demand "Shreya's Pet" was beautifully ridden by up and coming apprentice P K Gaddam, who went on to win the race on the post. Gaddam was simply outstanding today, registering a neat double, winning the last race on "Lady Blazer", in which race also Umesh was found having a sound sleep on favourite "Be My Glory" from start to finish. What's happening Umesh? Don't think that punters are not noting your 'antic'?
