Candidature for RWITC Elections 2010

Dear Member,

This past year has gone by so quickly and we once again come to the Royal Western India Turf Club Ltd. AGM and the Elections to be held in the Members’ Enclosure at 4:00pm on Saturday, 18th December 2010.

Last year with your valuable support I was elected to the Managing Committee. This past year has been a great experience. A lot is yet to be done – as Lao Tzu has rightly said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

Personally I have chaired the Cups & Trophies’ working group and continued to serve on the Equine Hospital working group and the Stud Book working group. New reputed suppliers of Trophies have been introduced with new designs and great quality. They ofcourse continue to come with value certification – a procedure introduced by me years ago. The Equine Hospital in Mumbai is undergoing an upgradation in consultation with experts from abroad. This will be completed soon. The Working Group has scheduled to bring in Veterinarians from abroad to train our Veterinarians here in various fields once this upgradation is completed. Horse owners/trainers will now have better medical facilities for their horses which they so rightly deserve. In the Stud Book, apart from the Stud Book website development ( and routine matters, I have been actively involved in the statutory publication of the Stallion Register which now can be compared to the best in the world. I am sure you will enjoy owning a copy of it. I have thoroughly enjoyed being on these working groups and have served them to the best of my ability.

Furthermore, I have been a Steward this past year, being my sixth year as one. Uninfluenced by personal relationships, I have been fair and unbiased in my decisions in my humble attempt to keep racing fair and clean.

I would like to continue to serve on the Managing Committee of our Club and am offering myself for re-election this year, for which, I earnestly seek your support and will be most grateful for that privilege.

With warm regards,
Sincerely yours,
Gautam Lala
