NAZAKAT was very well-tempered but very fastidious about food.
He was not fond of grass, only carrots.
He did not need a strong rider but nearly always worn blinkers.
Mr H T Barma once said:
“NAZAKAT never let us down.”
NAZAKAT also set the record of winning of:
two QEII Cup
80/1 of his second QEII Cup
3/1 of Class 3 Handicap
The favorite odds was due to Tony Cruz replacing the injured Rod Staples.
Mr & Mrs H T Barma retired NAZAKAT immediately after his last victory of the Ritz trophy.
