SM Shah's son wins the Breeders Cup Classic 2014 with Bayern

So the Owner's father the now retired SM Shah trained horses for my parents here in Bombay back int he 60s and 70s with great success winning the Indian Derby for us twice with OUR SELECT 1968 and BRIGHT HANOVAR 1971 and a host of other big races and big horses.

He then suddenly decided to shift base to Bangalore saying that his kids needed him there. Here's that kid doing him proud today.

Well done  #KaleemShah wish you many more.

Photos of his father leading in our winners can be seen on http://www.gainsvillestud.com/history.html

GREEK GOD's 4th win.

Greek God seen here winning The J.E.Hughes
Trophy by 8,1/2 lengths in Pune on
14th September 2014.
One comes to see that a man learns nothing from winning. The act of losing however, can elicit great wisdom. Not least of which is, how much more enjoyable it is to win. It's inevitable to lose now and again. The trick is not to make a habit of it.

GREEK GOD wins this time by 8, 1/2 lengths beating a class II field out of sight. His widest winning margin yet. Ridden by A.Sandesh and trained by Dallas Todywalla.

He is trained by Dallas Todywalla and bred at the Ruia Stud Farm.

Greek God is from the first Indian born crop of the Danehill horse Chevalier and comes from the prolific Canalette family that has produced the likes of Brave Hunter, Desert Carnival etc. in India.

His dam Pas de l'argent has produced many classy winners like Generalissimo, Habituated, Angels Glory, etc.

It's a good start and gives Gainsville something to look forward too.
Fingers crossed !

The GREEK GOD double !

On February 13th, 2014, GREEK GOD gave Gainsville the much awaited win after a long gap. He won the 6 furlong AFS Talyarkhan Trophy on debut by 2 3/4 lengths with considerable ease.

Two weeks later on February 26th, 2014, GREEK GOD annihilated the opposition to win easing up by 7 1/2 lengths in the 5 furlong Bright Hanovar Trophy - a Trophy sponsored by Gautam Lala in memory of the family owned great Indian Derby winner Bright Hanovar.

That takes his tally to two wins from as many starts. Greek God is trained by Dallas Todywalla, bred at Ruia Stud and was ridden by A.Sandesh on both days.

New for racing !

Gainsville's new purchase - bay colt by Multidimensional[IRE] - Congrats by China Visit[USA] - Congratulations by Razeen[USA]. 

This colt goes into training with Adhirajsingh Jodha.

We said we were excited about this. And right we were.

Our mare Starynessey was sent to Oath on retirement. It was a mating planned by Gautam Lala. We, in our article on May 25, 2008 (http://gainsvillestud.blogspot.in/2008/05/starynessey-and-henrythenavigator.html) said how excited we were for the progeny of this mating to run.

DARE TO DREAM - by Oath - Starynessey(foal of 2011), last week won The Alcock Arabian Stakes Gr.3, being his 3rd win from as many starts. He annihilated his opposition to win by 8 1/2 lengths. This is a very promising start and a lot more will be heard of DARE TO DREAM who is sure to get a longer trip in future. Even at this early stage, he seems to be the best sired by Oath.
