The races on the Bangalore Turf Membership (BTC), which had been suspended due to the lockdown, will resume this Sunday. With this, the BTC will kickstart the 2020-21 winter season and maintain 5 races in November, throughout the weekends.
Nevertheless, there will likely be no spectators, and bets may also not be taken for the primary few races, a senior steward on the BTC mentioned. “We can’t enable crowds on the BTC to position bets. So, we’re growing a cell utility for punters to position bets. It’s within the final levels of growth and can hopefully be obtainable for industrial deployment by November 14, after which we’ll take bets,” the steward mentioned.
For races with no bets, BTC pays the winner stake cash. “We now have devised a system the place the winner will likely be paid 45% of the stake cash that the corresponding race had garnered final 12 months. This follow will likely be in place solely until our app is deployed,” the steward added.
The races will likely be streamed on the BTC web site. A ticket for a race day will likely be priced at ₹500, and patrons will get a password to observe the race.
