Faith Of Success wins feature event

Trainer Aravind Ganapathy’s classic filly Faith Of Success ridden by Neeraj Rawal won the Golconda Derby Stakes (Gr. 1), the stellar attraction of Sunday’s (Jan. 30) races.

The winner is owned by M.A.M. Ramaswamy Chettiar of Chettinad Charitable Trust.

Jockey Neeraj kept his mount calmly in the seventh position till the bend, later as they were homeward bound into the straight this daughter of Saamid was bunched up near 400m. When Neeraj asked her to go she brilliantly manoeuvred her way to take charge and snatched the verdict from Stockbridge and Fire Power to win the race in a tight finish.
