Horse Racing: Second Day Confirmed, The Duchess Of York Cup Is The Main Event

Must Read

MTC Sports and Leisure Ltd will be hosting the second day of racing. Entries for Day 2 on Saturday 11 June, which will feature The Duchess Of York Cup (G2) as the centrepiece, were official by mid-day. This first classic of the season attracted 5 entries, including 3 from Gujadhur Stables: Royal Wulff, Ziva La Winter and Shah Akbar.

Following the resignation of three directors of the MTCSL, notably Me. Hurshit Woomchurn, Mr Nicolas Carosin and Mrs Shalini Roy Bunwaree-Nagdan, their replacements are now known. They are : Me Anne Sophie Jullienne, Me Maxime Sauzier SC, Mr Michel Coquet and Mr Pursooramrye Kallechurn. They join Vishwadass Kaniah, Stéphane de Chalain and Paul France Tennant.

The subsidiary of Mauritius Turf Club was able to obtain its race organiser’s licence after paying one million rupees to the Gambling Regulatory Authority. The Horse Racing Division is expected to take the entries for the second day of racing on Wednesday. For the inaugural season on Sunday, People’s Turf PLC was in charge of its organisation.

The other two entries in this 1,400m long race are Crank It Up (Ecurie Narang) and Prospector (Ecurie Mahadia). Another notable fact is that only 8 of the 17 teams in the running for this 2022 season have applied for this second day. They are Gujadhur, Narang, Mahadia, Merven, Daby, Rousset, Rameshwar Gujadhur and Maingard.

As a reminder, by this morning, it was uncertainty due to a lack of entries. At the close of the hour, the deadline for the submission of entries, the names of only about thirty horses landed at the Horse Racing Division. The Horse Racing Division decided to open the entries until 11 o’clock on Wednesday, in order to attract more horses. But fortunately, the organisation was able to find enough entries for the day to go on.

The People’s Turf Club PLC withdrew its application for an injunction in the Supreme Court on Tuesday. This after having been able to organise the first day of the 2022 season without a hitch, last Saturday at the Champ-de-Mars. It is recalled that it was asking the judge in chambers to prohibit the MTC Sports & Leisure Ltd (MTCSL) and the Mauritius Turf Club (MTC) from removing or dismantling the existing structures and horse ramps at the Champ-de-Mars last Friday.
