More Classic joy for Martin Dwyer

Report: India, Sunday

Kolkata

JOCKEY Martin Dwyer, who famously won the Derby on Sir Percy in 2006, enjoyed more Classic success on Sunday when he partnered In The Spotlight (Sadakshara Padmanabhan) to victory in the Calcutta Derby on Sunday.

Dwyer, who had partnered the filly to wins in the Calcutta Oaks and 1,000 Guineas, steered her to a convincing ten-length success over her main rival Dandified.

The rider has also won the Bangalore 2,000 Guineas on Field Marshal since going to India when the Flat turf season drew to a close in November.

The prestigious Indian Turf Club Invitational Cup in March, the Indian equivalent to the Breeders' Cup, is expected to be Dwyer's last race before heading back to Britain.
