GREATNESS in great style !

Being led in by Gautam Lala(left)

Gainsville Stud's 3yo filly GREATNESS by Emerald Cat[USA] - Jungle Girl by Tecorno[USA] won as an 30/100 odds on favorite after some anxious moments at the start. She was to hit the front or sit second, but missed the kick and trailed the field till the bend. Thereafter suberbly partnered by S. A. Desousa, who brought her from the shortest run from the inside, then switched to the outside and went on for an easy victory. This was her 3rd career start. She had finished 2nd in both her earlier starts last December to Snow Blaze and Martinique.
GREATNESS was ridden by S.A.Desousa and is trained by Narendra Lagad. She is bred at the Pratap Stud Farm.
