  Azhar starts new year with group win

SINGAPORE:  Jan 1, 2017

For so long the dominant name amongst the jockeys in Malaysia, Azhar Ismail's transition to be based in Singapore in 2015 has not been easy.

Azhar failed to win a race in 2015 and only got his long overdue first win as a Singapore based jockey in February last year when successful on GURU-GURU. He went on to land just three more winners last year.

The new season, though, has started well for the six-time champion Malaysian jockey. And it was again GURU-GURU who gave Azhar the much needed fillip.

Azhar and GURU-GURU just missed out on a big race win when beaten a short head by BAHANA in the Group 3 El Dorado Classic last October.

Two starts later, the pair were to emerge triumphant in the Group 3 New Year Cup over 1900m at Kranji here today, the opening day of the 2017 season.

GURU-GURU won by half a length from BIG BROTHER to record his fourth win in 21 starts.

"This horse has been fantastic to me and the race worked out well for us. Credit to Desmond for maintaining his form during the break," said Azhar.
