Crazy boys of the game: Two-year-olds entering the BTC premises are allowed inside only during office hours, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. !!! This is the notice issued to trainers regarding bringing the fresh horses into the BTC premises. Horses come in trucks from far off areas like Punjab. Trucks are not allowed to enter the city during office hours but BTC insists that horses too have to adhere to office hours. The club mandarins are totally oblivious of logistical difficulties. If the horses arrive late, will they have to stand outside till the next day to be allowed in? Your guess is as good as mine. Nothing can be crazier than the rules that the mandarins have made. One is not sure whether the authorities stand on their legs.

It's a privilege to be connected to such a class horse. (Courtesy: www.racingpost.com) Click on the link for the video.  Link
