In the Victorian era, around the turn of the century, the British Raj was getting more and more Indianised. Indians began to find a place in the administrative, industrial and social environment of the country. It was only a matter of time before the local elite began to take an active interest in racing.
The maharajas were amongst the first to be bitten by the racing-bug and early princely patrons of the Turf included Cooch-Behar, Burdwan, Baroda, Idar, Morvi, Kolhapur, Rajpipla and Mysore. Many of them, as also industrialists like textile tycoon Mathradas Goculdas, extended their interest to the ownership of horses in England. Thoroughbreds began to be imported on a larger scale.
The Army too set up its Remount and Breeding stations, using imported stallions for stud purposes, and Thoroughbred breeding in India began to take shape. From just 40 Thoroughbred foals of indigenous production added to the racing population in , the number rose to by the mid forties. The advent of the Second World War saw a substantial reduction in the broodmare strength in England, and many of the mares so culled ended up in India, leading to an even further increase in the number of foals bred here.
The racing season of marked a watershed in India racing and breeding and heralded the present era. In that season for the first time, the India Classics were run. To begin with, there were only three such events framed the Indian Guineas, the Indian Guineas and the India Derby and all were run at Bombay. In the inaugural year, all three were won by the Maharaja Gaekwad of Baroda's grand filly, Princess Beautiful.
The following year, the Indian Oaks and the Indian St. Leger run initially as the Governor-General's Cup were added. Indian racing could be said to have come of age. It needs to be mentioned that from their very inception, the India Classics were restricted to horses bred in India. By the late forties, the involvement of the British in India was on the wane and though the cantonment race-course remained, meetings were no longer conducted on many of them and racing came to be concentrated in the metropolitan cities of newly independent India.
Unfortunately, the misguided notions of conservative politicians threatened the very existence of the Indian Turf as racing was sought to be banned at the time. Better counsels prevailed and by the mid-fifties, racing was once again on a sound footing. In the late seventies, the five independent clubs came together to form a loose federation entitled the Turf Authorities of India.
The organisation exists as a joint, consultative forum while retaining the independence of jurisdiction of its constituents. The pattern of the 5 Indian Classics was followed by other turf clubs and brought about the establishment of the Regional Classics. In , the Indian Turf Invitation Cup m was instituted. Meant for the Classic crop, it was first run at Bombay and then in rotation at Calcutta and Madras.
At present, it is run at Bangalore and Hyderabad as well, each centre getting its turn in a 5-year cycle. Lifetime 0 Expired 0 Redeemed 0. Total redeemable TimesPoints 0. Notification Center.
