The race is known as the 'Crown Jewel of the Triple Crown'. It is restricted to four year old horses, both colts and fillies.
The event is supported by McDowell and Company of Dr. Vijay Mallya who also owns one of India's leading stables.


  1. Your photos reminds me of staying in Mubmai. Thank you:-)

  2. Thanks, I'm trying my best to show the unseen side of Mumbai, and of course, some famous places too. Your suggestions are welcome.

  3. A! I'm so psd to have a comment from India....Always, quite correctly, known as the "Jewel in the Crown" of the old Empire. Good wishes to Everyone on the Subcontinent. (P.S. I have a wonderful scrap book following a visit to South India in late '80s. A great privilege to see the country on business).

  4. Anu Hi,
    I came across to some Indian expats in Istanbul.Especially there were an Indian restaurant in Taksim. I love ethnic food, so I tried. All staff was from India and they really tried to help me when I was ordering. Other than that, I did not see that much Indians here. More Pakistani's....

  5. Hi this taken from 'Gallops Restaurant' at the race course?
    Aww i miss mumbai so much !

  6. Radha Hi,
    I've taken this one from the main road, so could not get the whole race course in the frame.

  7. Forgive me, I just never imagined that you raced horses in India!
