Put your hats on, it’s Derby time!
THIS Sunday, Mumbai will witness one of its most iconic sporting and lifestyle events — the McDowell Signature Premier Indian Derby. According to a racing aficionado, the day is associated not only for its style and class but also for the top- class racing action, rated the best in the country. And along with that there will be oodles of glamour. Last year, Dr Vijay Mallya , sponsor of
The Indian Derby and Vivek Jain ( former Chairman RWITC who was replaced a month ago and current head of the media and marketing group of the club) drove up in a regal horse drawn carriage to the victory podium on the track — a first ever in the history of the race.
This year, the pageantry unfolds again as Vivek has arranged a blue drop head 1947 Vintage Bentley ( previously owned by the Maharajah of Mysore) to replace the horses when they drive again in true style to award the winners!
Under the sprawling air conditioned tent will be fashion, music, magic and the race has already set a record with prize money topping a whopping Rs 3 crore.
