A day of race and revelry
It's important for an institution or organisation to not forget its roots and those that helped it climb the fame ladder. Lauding the same tradition is the Dr Govind Ram Gurbaxani Memorial Trophy, which is a memorial race that the Royal Western India Turf Club, Mumbai, has named after its esteem member, Govind Ram Gurbaxani.
