MUMBAI, (GNI): The Wadia Group today hosted the C. N. Wadia Gold Cup Race 2017 at Mahalakshmi Racecourse, Mumbai. The race is named after Sir Cusrow N Wadia, a great visionary and philanthropist of the Wadia Family, whose dream was to give Mumbai an International Race Course. It was his vision that created the beautiful Race Course. The Wadia Group and RWITC dedicated the day to honour Sir Cusrow Wadia by organizing the annual C. N. Wadia Gold Cup race.
The Paddock area of the Race Course was buzzing with entertainment programmes hosted by Mrs. Maureen Wadia as she showcased Gladrags Little Miss and Master India Mumbai Fancy Dress, Mrs India, Mumbai Bridal Wear and The Gladrags Megamodel Manhunt Mumbai.
In the early 1880’s Sir Cusrow N Wadia sent a team of architects to Melbourne to study its racecourse design so that it could be replicated on 225 acres of sea facing land he owned at Worli. When it was ready, he donated the newly built racecourse to the city.
