Treble effect at Pune races


Trainer Narendra Lagad and jockey Dashrath Singh emerged as star professionals on Saturday's eight-race card. Both of them won three races apiece. Interestingly, both partnered to win two races together — Arabian Storm (Yogender Singh Trophy - Div II) and Wild Fire (Enaksi Plate).

While Lagad won his third race with Excellent Gold (A Sandesh up), Dashrath Singh earned his third point astride a vigorously ridden Name Of The Game who just about managed to hold a fast-moving Highland Princess (H Zeeshan up) at bay.

Meanwhile, today's Grade 3, S A Poonawalla Million has attracted a small field of only five three-year-olds.

First race at 1.30 pm.
