Qemah claims second Royal Ascot win

24 Juin 2017

"We always thought the world because he's always been a natural, brilliant athlete". He came with every chance in the straight.

Gregory Benoist: "She ran like he did past year - she was very quiet before the race whereas last time at Lingfield she was excited first time out".

"He could go for the Goodwood Cup afterwards, but we've got to get to Ascot first and we will see after that".

"The Nunthorpe is where I'd like to go with her next".

He has been a beaten odds-on favourite three times in his last six starts since his Gold Cup victory and that has to be slightly off-putting.

"She is very bright in herself".

"He's got to be the best I've trained, especially breaking the track record here today, and that is not being disrespectful to the other horses". We don't know whether the extra half-mile is going to suit her, but we would be very optimistic. The trip is the obvious concern, though, as she would want further ideally, as well as a deep level of opposition.

And it prompted the sort of reaction from some racing's coolest professional which indicates Highland Reel has secured a singularly sentimental spot in the affections of the Coolmore bloodstock empire.

Lynch: Reduce cost on health plans
Heller and Sandoval said they believe that Obamacare has problems, but raised concerns with the Senate plan's Medicaid provisions. Trumpcare 2.0 throws millions off healthcare, cuts Medicaid & weakens protections for pre-existing conditions.

And yesterday she was attempting to become only the second female to ride a Royal Ascot victor, 30 years after Gay Kelleway won the Queen Alexandra Stakes on Sprowston Boy. "We've been praying for a nice steamy Ascot as he loves fast ground". I was disappointed that he was just a bit inexperienced at Newmarket, and that cost him the race. "His work has been good and Jessie is very happy".

"Davy and Andrew were happy with him at home and they were really looking forward to it. It's not so much revenge, it's the fact that we thought he was a Group 1 victor in waiting and now he's proved that".

He hasn't really gone on from his impressive Doncaster return for me in April, and I would be anxious about fast ground for him, even if he has won on it.

It's nice to have that old feel back with a good horse like him, and it's nice to do it for Sheikh Mohammed too.

"I think the Deauville could be next for her".

Ward said he hoped to free up Velazquez from American commitments to ride favourite McErin in Thursday's Norfolk Stakes, but had not yet firmed up riding plans for his Friday runners, which are Commonwealth Cup hope Bound For Nowhere and Albany Stakes contenders Fairyland and Princess Peggy.

"Fifth in a Group 1 against some of the best milers you could have thrown at you, so absolutely thrilled with that run".

First prize for that was nearly £3 million and the emphatic manner of the victory will not make him any less attractive when he is (probably) retired to the breeding sheds at the end of this year.
