Bourbon King’s style of win

iBourbon King’s style of win in the Rajytotsava Cup on the opening day of Bangalore Winter races on Saturday suggested that no body in the country would beat this son of Diffident up to a mile. Bourbon King is the right kind of horse which should be sent to Dubai to race in the Dubai Racing Carnival. In the kind of form that he is in, Bourbon King would easily beat even the mighty Southern Empire.
Bourbon King was expected to have it tough against seasoned horses like Hesperus and Green Bax as he was giving weight to these horses. If Bourbon King had run in a handicap race, both these horses would have been conceding weight to him. Bourbon King scored a bloodless victory and he won by more than six lengths. Jockey Prakash was not even required to use the whip to get him going. According to me, Bourbon King is a good thing for the Indian 2000 Guineas and I firmly believe that no other horse in the country can come anywhere near him. Pesi Shroff and the rest who would have been nursing hope of winning the Indian 2000 Guineas can quickly bury their dream.
