Some of the happenings in our country’s racing are quiet intriguing, the case is about the amazing turn around in the riding capabilities of some of our budding riders. The particular reference is to P DHEBE , who was being hailed as a fresh talent likely to challenge the few genuine jockeys we have flying around all the centres and notching up a major share of winners on their mounts. As soon as P DHEBE has achieved the status of a regular rider, he has stopped receiving support from the owners/ trainers who were so keen to utilize him for their mounts in last two seasons. Also see the performance of this rider, he is contend to sit way back and go through the motions on his rides. Last year we had a similar story when young S CHETANKALAY notched up many smart wins at about the same time but faded away once he achieved the regular status. P DHEBE certainly has talent but where is the encouragement from the industry.
