MYSORE races cancellation decisionBy S c SHARMA | 05-Sep-2019
Yesterday Mysore race club stewards decided to cancel the last two races and the decision surprised many. Morning it was declared the going is good, weather is cloudy and penetrometer reading is 3.3 cms. During race time drizzle and rain also interrupted the proceedings but yet the track was not so bad to cancel the last two races.
I came to know punters interrupted the conduct of racing, demonstrated with some outsiders winning and not happy with the way favourites horses were ridden and finished off the frame. The stewards sensed the mood of punters and cancelled the last two races.
Now come to the results first race with wide odds offered won by no 4 Sky Jasmine for which better jockey replaced compare to last time where jockey cautioned and fined for taking undue long lead at bend. Second race no 8 Girl with pearl won which was favourite and well backed too. Third and fourth races were’ No whip races ‘ and won by outsiders but the run and record of the winner horses were not out of reckoning. Fifth race won by customery front runner no 5 Side Winder whome equipment was changed T.S. on and from last run distance changed and by claiming allowance of 3 kg 6 points dropped which may stood good for him. I took this box FC and Quinella with a investment of Rs 120/- and got around rs 5700/-. Racing always will not be as punter expects. Up and down, with uncertainties and lot of complexities will be there and it is not walking on roses. I can understand the anger of punters as they are on loosing side maximum times. Only cautious and responsible approach may come to the rescue of punters if they value their money and learn from mistakes. Blame game after the race can console but not solve the problem and racing will continue with all such uncertainties and complexities.
Be in limit and enjoy the game. Don’t take everything easy, casual or granted and accept the risk and uncertainty factor and than decide the game and invest. Good day and good luck and God bless you.
