Imtiaz, veteran with an eye for detail.

Imtiaz Sait is one of the most successful trainers in the country. With over 100 Graded race  victories under his belt, the veteran trainer has been a model of consistency. The Mumbai based amiable professional has been a shrewd trainer, placing his wards to get remarkable results. What distinguishes Imtiaz from other trainers is his attention to detail, ability to assess and target his wards to the best of their ability. He has a fine understanding of pedigrees, medication and treatment of horses and has an uncanny knack of spotting problems before they go out of hand which has helped many a thoroughbred to acheive its full potential.

There may be many who fault the trainer for bringing his juveniles long after the plum events during the Mumbai season are over, Imtiaz Sait is a person who believes that horses should be given their time to mature and not rushed through simply because there is a race to be won.

He has always believed that horses have a way of telling the trainer when they are ready for the fray and till such time, one has to be patient. This approach has seen him reap rich rewards and today, he has won almost every big race that there is to be won.

Easily, Exhilaration and Saddle Up are two of the top horses that he has trained in his long career. While Exhilaration remained unbeaten, winning the Gr 1 Indian Derby and the Gr 1 Indian Turf Invitation Cup and did well in the limited opportunities that he was given in the stud farm, Saddle Up went on to gain India and its bloodstock worldwide recognition by his exploits in Singapore against quality international competition. Saddle Up won a host of graded races under Imtiaz including the Gr 1 Bangalore Derby and Gr 1 Indian St Leger.

Imtiaz has had a rewarding career and he has produced a top horse each year with uncanny ability. What is remarkable about Imtiaz is his ability to keep his wards performing at the top level for long periods of time. In the recent years, Blue Horizon who won the Sprinters Cup besides a host of other races, Warsaw Pact who claimed the Indian St Leger and now Alvarita who is proving to be an outstanding three-year old filly, have kept his flag flying.

Imtiaz is patronized by who is who of Indian racing. With his friendly disposition and patience, he has been able to keep all his patrons happy so much so that the success of the trainer, irrespective of its owner, is enjoyed as success of all in the stable! This is remarkable given the complex nature of individuals owning horses. It indeed takes takes tremendous ability to keep everyone happy.

All said and done what places Imtiaz in the elite group is his consistency, experience and expertise to deliver the goods.
