Apr 2010 (annual)
Link: India Races Website
The Indian Derby, run at Mumbai's Mahalakshmi Race Course, is the highlight of Mumbai's racing season and a major occasion on the city's social calendar. Serious racing fans are outnumbered on Derby day as the course overflows with well-heeled viewers.
The race is known as the "Crown Jewel of the Triple Crown". It is restricted to four-year-old horses, both colts and fillies, but is almost of secondary importance to the activities surrounding the event. It is important to be seen here, and to be seen at your smartest.

The event is supported by McDowell and Company, a liquor company controlled by Vijay Mallya, who also owns one of India's leading stables.
