Subject :Shocking Mount of Ys Srinath
I am quite surprised to see Ys Srinath being aasigned mount in Race no 2 horse no 5 Mathaiyus.. Horse is assgined weight of 49 kgs whereas Srinath is close to 54 kgs..
What could be the reason to take disadvantage of such handicap selection.

@ sportyy

By far the most logical person in the group.

I am not saying anything about you dear friend. But my reply was for all the Doubting Thomas' in this group !

MATHAIYUS may run in the Hyderabad Derby at the end of this month !

When you cannot argue logically resort to mud slinging the Dilip way. He just could not deny any of my argements

The horse won in a record time of 2.37 .9 mins.I leave it to your imagination the reasons for this brilliant performance.[Set light won in 2.27 mins]
Please note the repeated announcements before even race one.

The trainer at the behest of the owner requested a 5.5 kgs over wt Which was given. So Pessi played it safe.

Any one claiming it will run in Indian derby may do so but will be in the last few horses..

@ Vroom Vroom

Over weight and allowance reversed /handicapper overlooking / disadvantage
blah blah blah blah -some said jockey srinath wont be sitting on it

Point is horse won today and at good odds defying the handicapper

Good win in the day for the trainer & jockey & thats what racing is all about [Precise calculations for a particular race ] with good finish
this is a forum & discussion was on a particular ride .... nobody cursed the trainer or jockey
Some were confident Mathaiyus would win -others were sure horse would lose
So the arguments -
We all here to share info & VIEWS and not to show anyone down so chill my friend

but ....

Now that the verdict is out how does Handicapper handle this situation where a horse carries 5.5 Kg over weight and Wins a Handicap Race.This horse rated 47 qualified to run in this class only because 40-52 rated horses were eligible to participate.Even then it was required to carry 49Kg after weights were raised by 1.5Kg.All in all it is an exception to the normal.My rating after the win is 71 and mapping it to Mrs Patmore race it can be assumed to be running at a virtual rating of 82 still a clear 3 Kg short of 88 the revised rating of Mrs Patmore.
Now decide for yourself.

  vroom vroom said ... On : 1/12/2017 6:22:35 PM
Well ?

What do all of you have to say for yourselves know?

Never mind the Indian Derby, the horse won today... Thats what all the arguments were about in this forum.

I hope every single one of you are eating your words !

The horse will carry the jockeys body weight so will not matter regards the running of the race. But as rightly pointed out by many no trainer should be allowed to declare a overweight jockey of more than 2kgs

  Dilip said ... On : 1/12/2017 6:12:19 PM
@stopfoolingpunter, the unhealthiness emanates from you and not Pesi and his owners! Improve your health and ours by not venting your frustrations on this site. As one could see, there was never any ill intent . Your negative comments will do you no favours. The condemnation sits squarely on your shoulders!

  Mani said ... On : 1/12/2017 1:27:44 PM
So, you have a situation where this horse is running at 54 kgs, so basis this weight and the field, you have to decide whether it would win or loose and accordingly bet. There is nothing hidden here. So, punters are not in dark. Nothing wrong here.If it wins now, it surely becomes one of the strong contenders for derby. If it loses, it might not be entered in derby. But for this race, bet basis your logical sense, obviously, the intention of trainer is to win this race and win the derby. Whatever happens, we will know.

Dilip for that matter no one forces any one to for why this argument.
There are certain norms for racing to be conducted and so far we have been following them. The entire Handicapping system is based on wt. carried by any horse.

If some one is breaking the rules aided by the club we have every right to point out the same.
This should be condemned by one and all, as this is not healthy racing

  Dilip said ... On : 1/12/2017 11:45:13 AM
@JP, no one has forced you to back the horse. The punters are aware of the overweight PRIOR to the horse running and if they still decide to back, it is with the full knowledge of the extra weight so what are you making a big song and dance about.

  JP said ... On : 1/12/2017 11:13:01 AM
As somebody has written that permission has been obtained for riding with 6 kilos over weight. I am surprised that RWITC authorities must be out of their minds in granting permission. In case the horse loses whether the trainer and RWITC will reimburse to all who had lost on betting this horse.
Be Safe incident is still fresh. The horse was declared as bleeder and was permitted to run before the stipulate period of ban and see what state the horse is now. I have seen horses running on two successive days, winning the previous day and carrying the stipulated penalty of 6-7 kilos in the same class next day and winning. If the trainer was so confident of the horse's calibre and guts he should have ran the horse on Sunday in the R.R.Ruia cup. For me it is going to be PALATIAL and VULCAN for SHP


  venu said ... On : 1/12/2017 11:10:55 AM
Its a battle between Pesi and the handicapper. Worth watching this race today. As far as betting is concerned I suggest you should bet Vulcan or Palatial each way.

  Mad Max said ... On : 1/12/2017 10:50:59 AM

In the history of horseracing, nowhere any horse won carrying 6 kg extra. If he wins it will be entered in the Guinness world record.

  Mani said ... On : 1/12/2017 10:21:04 AM
Pesi wants to try this horse for derby distance at close to the derby weight. So, pesi is confident of winning and is taking this as a prep run for derby. It will win, so you can either play win on this horse or place on any other horse.

  JIT said ... On : 1/12/2017 9:56:38 AM
Rules Of Racing clearly state that a rider can carry a maximum overweight of 3.5 kgs.

YS Srinath and Pesi should be fined for this declaration as it is a planned contravention of the Rules - what will stop other trainers from declaring jockeys from riding heavier than the declared weights ?

Rest assured that the Stewards of the Club will either scratch the horse or have Pesi replace the jockey. Either which way one must wait to see what transpires and then decide.

  stop fooling punter said ... On : 1/12/2017 9:35:44 AM
Please the video of the last race of Mathaiyus.
Sri. whipped him 4 times inspite of being good few lts, ahead.

Also see the horses he has beaten. It looks like Tom cruises mission impossible.
Will Pessi defy all odds.? Lots of clamour because as stated defies the rule book.

Never a dull moment in RWITC

Permission has been taken from the club to carry 6kgs overweight which means Srinath will sit in the sweat box to loose that 1 kgs extra[min] or more ..
Either way this gimmick is purely for 2 reasons
Getting more than On money price or
Actually confirming his handicap disadvantage and letting it work against the horse for obvious reasons ..
what ever it may be , the trainer is bold to defy the handicapper and we will know the outcome tomorrow evening .
Horse shud run with jockey srinath astride on it

  Luckylooker said ... On : 1/11/2017 11:58:00 PM
The rules of racing state that you can only carry a maximum of 3.5 kg overweight. So, have the rules of racing changed for certain trainers? And yes gentlemen, we will see tomorrow evening who prevails.

  JP said ... On : 1/11/2017 11:47:32 PM
I am sure that there will be change of jockey for Mathayius with a silly reason "jockey indisposed". RWITC should scratch the horse and fine the trainer for declaring over weight jockey and then changing.

  Umesh said ... On : 1/11/2017 10:38:36 PM
The top trainer wants to proove that he is also a magician,and can teach the handicappers how to handicap. He is fancied for indian derby also.he is best horse.

  Manoj said ... On : 1/11/2017 7:42:19 PM
Back him as a good thing,the trainer is very confident to win the Indian Derby.

  Pradeep said ... On : 1/11/2017 7:40:54 PM
Change in Class, same weight(when it won last) & additional distance of 400Ms. & Overweight carried by jockey.All factors are against it even for a place bet.But you don't know what Pesibaba has in his head.
Fingers crossed but this has happened at RWITC earlier too & results are varying.

If Mathius wins it will show the Handicapper is useless.
He is only knowm

  Rajesh said ... On : 1/11/2017 4:30:05 PM

Shows the over confidence of Mr PS. YS rides him in the Derby so they feel all is over and will toy with the opposition.
