Rapper Dragon

John Moore’s inmate is the highest-rated horse in the field and the trainer recently spoke of his prospects in bullish terms;

“As I’ve always said to the press, he’s one of the cleanest-winded horses I’ve come across so I’m expecting him to be close in the Classic Mile. It’s going to be a gun race, but I think he’ll be a force to be reckoned with in that race, for sure.”

Beauty Generation

Rapper Dragon’s stablemate is another serious contender, although there are some concerns over his fitness. Beauty Generation’s trademark turn of foot didn’t look to be there, when he narrowly won on January 8th.

“He is only going to improve in fitness in two weeks’ time and his win today just showed his class. He gave a lot of weight to Western Express (3rd), who has already had two runs and was fitter than him.”, said Moore after the unconvincing victory.

Pakistan Star

Silvestre de Sousa will be on-board the Tony Cruz-trained, but things haven’t been going this horse’s way since he became a global internet sensation following a brace of victories that displayed incredible acceleration when the button was pushed.

“He is a nice young horse and still getting better, but people were talking about him like he was a champion after those first two wins. Of course he has a long way to go. He was a bit unlucky when he was beaten but people had very high expectations of the horse.”, said de Sousa.

Others in contention include Eagle Way, Western Express and Winner’s Way. Optimistic each-way backers might be tempted with a small bet on either Season’s Bloom, or People’s Knight.

The Indian racing industry is blossoming and we regularly feature meetings from Calcutta, Mysore, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and other great racing venues.

After Malaysia was colonised by the British, horse racing soon took off. The major courses are the Selangor, Perak and Penang Turf Clubs. At around the same time, horse racing began in Singapore. The Singapore Turf Club, which is in Kranji, is the major venue. Macau’s action takes place at Taipa.

Flat racing, jump racing and draft racing events are all held in Japan. Even maiden races have prize-pools of over one hundred thousand dollars, in this country. The top racecourses are Tokyo and Nakayama.

The four most prestigious clubs in Pakistan are Lahore, Rawalpindi, Karachi and Gujrat. Racing in South Korea is beginning to flourish, helped by the construction of the new racecourse at Busan.
