The Valentine Day Cup highlights the action at KRC today
KARACHI: Seven horses will battle it out for honors in the Valentine Day Cup which features prominently in a small four-race card of the Gymkhana Race Meeting to be held at Karachi Racecourse on Saturday.

Five horses will make their presence felt in the opening race which is also the highlight event of the day – combined ladder order II and III – and will run over four and a half furlongs.
The second and second race has seven competitors and will take place over four and a half stages.
Seven other horses will face the starter in the fourth and final race under the lowest ladder orders VII and VIII and will be raced over four furlongs.
