The adrenalin rush of horses racing was offset by charming fashion showcased by the glamouristas at the Poonawalla Breeders’ Multi-Million races.

The charging of the horses towards the winning post had the crowd cheering at the Poonawalla Breeders’ Multi-Million race. But it was also the ladies in their fashionable hats and attire that got an equal amount of attention, if not more, from the guests present. The races saw a winner in Horse no. 8 of Stud Hazara owned by Dr Ramaswamy, Maharaja of Chettinad, along with jockey B Srikanth. The total prize money was R1,75,00,000 out of which Stud Hazara got a handsome amount of R1,05,00,000 with a trophy worth R2,00,000.

The glamour was endorsed by Delna Poonawalla who showcased her spring-summer collection of hats that became the topic of conversation amongst the fashionistas. Alongside the glitter, charity too came to the forefront. The Poonawalla family extended their wholehearted support to the Indian Cancer Society, which showcased their activities at the racecourse to raise funds.

There was an eclectic mix of celebrities and socialites at the races. Besides the winning horse, others too won exciting prizes such as the Best Dressed Lady that went to Sophie Choudry, Best Dressed Gentleman to Sagar Chordia and Best Hat to Tulika Tripathy.

Venue: RWITC, Mahalaxmi, Mumbai.

Buzz: High fashion, high society, great races—all were winners on this turf.
