Racing At Hyderabad
Located in Malakpat, the racecourse at Hyderabad is widely accepted to be among the most important in India. Racing in Hyderabad can be traced back to the late 1870s. In those days, the action was to be found at Moula Ali, a suburb just a few miles from Secunderabad.
The fixtures themselves were known as Deccan races, but by 1886 racing had ceased at Moula Ali and had moved to Malakpat. The man behind the move was Mir Mahbub Ali Khan – the 6th Nizam of Hyderabad. He wanted an operational racetrack that was much closer to his palace.
There are quite a few important races that are held at Hyderabad. They include the Colts Championship Stakes, the Fillies Championship Stakes, the Nizam’s Gold Cup, the President of India Gold Cup and the Deccan Derby.
Of these, the Deccan Derby is by far the most important. The date of this race is always October 2nd, regardless of what day that falls upon. It is a contest for the very best 3-year-olds in India.
As for the course, it is a sharp right-hander and a real test of skill for even the best jockeys. There are actually 2 tracks – The Monsoon Track and the Winter Race Track.
The Monsoon Track has a sand-surface and is used between the months of July and October. It is just over 2200 metres in length.
The Winter Race Track has a tan bark surface and is used for races between November and March. This track is slightly shorter. There is also a sand track that is used just for training horses. This is about 7 metres. There is a reverse tack, also made of sand and a trotting ring.
The main Grandstand has 2 tiers and has the capacity to hold 10,000 spectators. The design of the structure allows for panoramic viewing of the action. It incorporates the new Paddock Viewing Gallery. This enables up to 2000 to view the Paddock on race-days.
There are almost 500 permanent stables, plus a further 100 more temporary structures. All of the permanent stables are air-cooled.
