With Diwali falling on October 29, Royal Turf Club (RTC) will conduct a horse race at the Nuwara Eliya Race Course coupled with entertainment to keep the crowds in a festive mood.
Racing enthusiasts will be privileged to witness horses from India. These Indian horses will participate in the big fields in all the races.
The RTC hopes to have six races with a minimum of seven runners in each race.
Some of the highest rated class 1 horses like Silver Streak, Santos, along with other horses like Charming Grey and Absolute Red will compete in class 3. Horses like Hunhar Collorato in class 4 are amongst the few fresh legs that will be making their debut run, thus making the races even more competitive and exciting with thrilling finishes.
There will be entertainment for kids. Expectations are that the weather gods will be kind. According to the organisers many prizes are on offer.
