Enabler runs to glory in the HPSL Indian Derby

History was written by the Father-Son duo as trainer Malesh Narredu’s champion colt Enabler, ridden by son Yash Narredu, won the HPSL Indian Derby (Gr.1), the prestigious event of the Indian racing calendar at the Mahalaxmi race course on Sunday (Feb.4).

The winner is owned by Mrs B. E. Saldanha, Mr Sultan Singh rep. Sohna Stud Farm Pvt. Ltd, Mr Vivek S. Jain, Mr Balam Mohla & Mr Anil Saraf.

With unwavering confidence, Yash expertly steered this got-abroad progeny of Ruler Of The World and Rozene to maintain the fifth position until the crucial bend.

As the field charged into the home straight, Enabler, strategically positioned in third behind Jamari and Synthesis within the last 200m, unleashed a breathtaking surge on the outside to win in a spectacular fashion.

Juliette dominates

Trainer Karthik Ganapathy’s remarkable mare, Juliette, secured a fourth consecutive victory, that began in 2021, in the Eclipse Stakes of India.

Despite emerging from quarantine just two weeks ago due to the cancellation of her Dubai trip, Juliette delivered a stellar performance, triumphing over Dyf at the post.
