The Royal Western India Turf Club Limited (RWITC) is one of the oldest and most well-known horse racing Clubs in the country that has enjoyed the patronage of socialites and eminent personalities alike. The members, in particular the club members, comprise the crème de la crème of Indian society. Some of the more prominent members include Vijay Mallya, Cyrus Poonawalla and Madhur Bajaj among others.
While the Royal Western India Turf Club conducts races at both Pune and Mumbai, the differing nature of the track makes for very interesting viewing for the discerning equestrian fan. With races held from July to October, Pune’s is a monsoon track and is tighter with a shorter run-in. With racecourse conditions varying from one day to the next, the possibility of surprise results will make for some very interesting viewing indeed!
