On Sunday(7-3-2010), the 48th running of the "Indian Turf invitation cup" and its tenth running at the "Mahalaxmi race-course" in Mumbai was conducted with great fanfare and entertainment . Sponsorship of this race by the "vandrewala Foundation" has given it its name "Vandrewala Foundation India turf Invitation cup-2010". Akin to the "Mcdowell's Indian Derby-2010" there was a carnival atmosphere at the race-course with a "Ice-skating show" performed on synthetic ice floor constructed in the 'members Enclosure", something unique in tropical Mumbai climate.The favourite was "Jacqueline @ 90/100 odds and the second favourite was "Becket" @ 2 1/2 odds, the rest of the 9 horse field were quoted at much longer odds, proving that this was a 2- horse race . There was a crowd of approx 15000 racegoers, less than the "mcdowell Indian derby-2010", but, the race had all the ingredients of a repeat of rivalry between the flliy Jacqueline and colt Becket.
