Juliette - Star of the Indian Turf

Juliette, under the training of Karthik Ganapathy, made history at the Kolkata racecourse, securing her third consecutive Gr 1 Indian Turf Invitation Cup victory with record-breaking speed. The remarkable eight-year-old mare outshone her rivals, leaving them far behind as she surged to victory guided by her regular jockey, C S Jodha.

Despite facing challenges, including indifferent rides and missing out on the Dubai Racing Carnival, Juliette's determination prevailed, propelling her to surpass Adjudicate's record. Trainer Karthik Ganapathy's dedication and the decision to keep Juliette in training rather than retiring her for breeding paid off, leading to her unprecedented success.

Juliette's thrilling performance garnered overwhelming support from punters, contrasting with the lack of confidence in other contenders like Synthesis and Jamari. Despite a slow start, Juliette's seasoned jockey maintained composure, allowing her to dominate the race and cross the finish line eight lengths ahead in a record time of two minutes and 26.78 seconds.

In the Gr 1 Major P K Mehra Memorial Super Mile, A Star Is Born, trained by Rajesh Narredu and ridden by champion jockey Suraj Narredu, continued his unbeaten streak for the season, edging out Knotty Charmer in a tightly contested race. Suraj strategically timed his challenge amidst fierce competition, securing the win just before the post.
