My name is Arveen Nagadoo, manager of River Palace Racing Syndicate, aged 27, & I grew up in the Nagadoo family. Horse racing is in my blood as my dad Naveen Nagadoo & 2 uncles Praveen Nagadoo & Samraj Mahadia were jockeys, my late grandfather, Narad Ramlugun, was head groom at Martin Stable (Groom of Azul & Laldheer) & several family members who currently work as grooms in different racing stable.
I took the decision to return to Mauritius to be much closer to my horses, as I really want to takeover in the future if the situation permits. I have the chance to work with V Allet Stable, but the current situation is not encouraging at the moment as unfortunately horse racing in Mauritius is purely politics rather than a sport. I wish the authorities could make horse racing SIMPLE, just the way it should be.
Twist Of Fate was my first ever purchased, and he definitely changed my fate!! I bought him as a yearling in 2017 from Favour Stud at R30 000 only, and he turned out to be a little champion. I therefore built up River Palace Racing Syndicate, and we currently have around 30 members from Mauritius, Canada, UAE, UK, South Africa & Australia. We have been successful not only with Twist Of Fate, but we had some winners with Red Ten & Anza-Borrego. We currently own 7 horses in both Mauritius & South Africa, out of which 2 unraced babies & have registered 9 wins so far. We try to focus as much as possible on Quality than Quantity, the reason why we buy only 1 or 2 horses per year.
Twist Of Fate will turn 6 this year and logically, things won’t be easy anymore in South Africa, considering the quality of the young horses and the level of competition we have over there. I therefore decided to bring him over to Mauritius to represent our colors. Regarding his plan, I will leave that to the trainer, but without a doubt we will go for classic races.
