DESERT GOD returns to Windsor where he made his English racing debut three months back. He is dropping back in Class and distance.

He is entered for Class 3 Konig Ludwig Handicap (about 2300 m.) to be run on Monday at 8.15 p.m. IST. He is set to carry 61.0 kgs. and will be ridden by Stephen Cummins who claims 3.5 kgs.

Poor God not in first 4 lead and faded out. Not that class Evan in class 3 in Windsor that’s real bad.

He will run out of board. Just not good enough. Gone there to disgrace himself. Sargent is next to be in the same state.

Thank you Major for keeping us up to date with one of our favourite horse, who may not be doing too well for some, I am happy he is running and just the fact that Commentator will say "Desert God from India" is reason enough for me to tune in.
Win, lose or draw he is still all conquering horse.

Major Sir:

Thanks for your Post. However in India most of us feel that good sense prevails over the owners and they give proper rest to the Horse which earned enough money for them. If the owners spent a lot out of greediness the horse is not responsible.They have acted almost like punters playing again and again and finally lose all.

In order to win the race the horse needs a good jockey like Colm O Donogue I dont think that Jockey Stephen Cummins will be able to handle the Horse effectively. In all probability like last time a low weight Horse will win the race.

Racing a Desert God in Class 3 will be almost like Indian Doctors working in Pharmacy Shops in USA !!!!! If the owners wanted money they could have earned here itself quite a lot without giving much strain to the horse ! Now they have neither earned any money and in all possibility they might have apent all their earning out of this Horse also !!! Worst is they brought a bad name to an excellent horse !
