Ladies Day brought racegoers into Royal Ascot with bright, bold, statement pieces, nothing less than what you could’ve imagined for Ladies Day. The sun was shining or at least trying to, being one of the better days of the previous two over at Ascot.
The man of the moment Frankie Dettori had a terrific start to the day yesterday placing first in four of the first races, with a seventh Gold Cup victory. But that’s where it stopped for Dettori as after his fourth win his luck soon faded. After the great performance from yesterday Dettori is now in first place for the leading jockey of Royal Ascot 2019. With two days until the final day of Royal Ascot can he hold onto that title at he continues to play at the Frankie playground.
Dettori kicked off his four consecutive wins in the Norfolk Stakes on A’Ali. The horse was the first Maiden to win this race in 30 years. A close call at the finishing post as A’Ali and Ventura Rebel paced over the finish with mini seconds apart. While Dettori’s second win was just the opposite of that with a clear length ahead of the others over the finishing post.
Star Catcher defiently caught up with the other runners in the Ribblesdale Stakes, leading two furlongs out. Making it a third win of the day for the legend of the day.
The awaited Gold Cup race saw Dettori take his fourth and last win of the day. The leading jockey achieved a record breaking seventh win of the Gold Cup. Stradivarius being the bookies favourite and delivered what Royal Ascot racegoers wanted, with the horse retaining a second Gold Cup. Taking Ladies Day by storm Dettori also made trainer Gosden day as he brought home two wins for the trainer on Star Catcher and Stradivarius.
Young jockey Harry Bentley has a taste of victory with his first win at Royal Ascot stopping Frankie Dettori in his tracks from getting an all clear 5/5 wins at Royal Ascot. The young jockey rode Biometric out pacing Dettori’s horse Turgenev who lead the race until the final moments when it really counted.
South Pacific gave jockey Seamie his first win at Royal Ascot 2019, taking the last win of Ladies Day. Trainer Aiden O’Brien also taking his fourth win at Ascot this week.
