From :- S.Dominic , Trainer , Bangalore
To :- All the Contestants and THE PTR Contest Management Team Members,
It gives me immense pleasure to announce the winners, runners up and the top 5 podium finishers of the recently concluded THE PTR contest for Bangalore summer season 2019. I thank S Kumar (SK) for inviting me to do the honors.
I have been going through this contest for many years now and this contest has gained popularity over the years and can be considered as most successful being run in India Race.com. The Zeal and Enthusiasm with which the contestants participate itself shows the popularity of this contest. Year on Year, as I see there is tremendous growth in contestants joining this contest. This contest is not only viewed in terms of one’s planning investment for Live Races but also displays a contestants hard work in selecting the right horses after going through long hours of study through which he plans for his stakes in this contest as well. This contest, therefore is very useful both ways to the contestants.
This year the Bangalore contest though kick started 4 days late but gained pace very quickly and the momentum was in full throttle within few days from the commencement of the contest.
Compared to last year this year, I was made to understand there is a drop in contestants as a final percentage and this may be due to various factors prevailing in this sport and I trust that there will be enough impetus for the ongoing Pune contest which has commenced recently in style and I wish all the contestants and the contest management members, all the very best.
I congratulate Mr. Vamps Venom who was in the middle bunch right from the time the gates have opened and flew like a Rocket in the last 200 Metres or so crossing the winning post in style, thus throwing the leader, Mr S.Kumar to the second position. Mr Vampsvenom’s final day Win Roll ensured him the First Place in the contest and I was made to understand that he has been an outstanding player in the various contests being run in indiarace.com. Congratulations Vampsvenom for winning this contest and look forward to many more from you in future.
Mr S.KUMAR as I have been seeing and noticing him in many roles as co ordinator, architect, Shrewd planner of various contests and as a Able Writer in horse Talk has also been involved in various management decisions pertaining not only to these contests but also in various analysis of this sport in general. Over a period of 10 years or so he has been associated and contributed tirelessly in horse talk and I congratulate him for being leader in the contest till the end only to be beaten at the winning post by Mr Vampsvenom. I congratulate SK for his outstanding fighting spirit in this contest and bad luck that he missed the top rank.
Mr Abhay-Pune who is also one of the regular old timer and outstanding HT’ian for over a decade now has been displaying his class till the very end of this contest and stood 3rd in this contest. His single roll about a month ago or so in this contest displayed his class and authority on this sport. Many congratulations Abhay-Pune for the 3rd position in this contest which is presumed to be very tough and this sport in general which goes through many unforeseen circumstances in real live action.
I congratulate Mr Againstodds for being a true sportsman and contestant of this contest for marking his 100 % Attendance in this contests and he is also one of the very regular contestant in various contests held in Horse talk .
