Another For Ballydoyle as Galileo’s Magic Wand Takes the Ribblesdale

Thoroughbred Daily News - 12 hours 5 min ago

   Successful from Forever Together (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in the May 9 Listed Cheshire Oaks, Magic Wand (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) had trailed that stablemate by 11 lengths when fourth in the June 1 G1 Epsom Oaks but back on this summer ground was clear best in her absence in the G2 Ribblesdale S. Always happy in second, the 10-3 shot was sent to the lead at the top of the straight and powered to a four-length-success from the 9-4 favourite Wild Illusion (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), with Sun Maiden (GB) (Frankel {GB}) 1 1/2 lengths back in third. “We did feel the [rain-softened] ground was a factor at Epsom and we were hoping she would be back to the filly she was at Chester on good ground here,” Aidan O’Brien commented. “Forever Together might go to the [G1] Pretty Polly [S. at The Curragh July 1] and this filly could maybe go to the [G1] Irish Oaks [at The Curragh July 21] and then maybe York.”

Camelot’s Hunting Horn Takes the Hampton Court

Thoroughbred Daily News - 12 hours 43 min ago

   Sixth last time in the G1 Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly, Hunting Horn (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) was on song to win the G3 Hampton Court S. with authority and provide Ryan Moore with a 50th Royal Ascot winner. Racing in sixth without cover early, the 5-1 second favourite was sent past Crossed Baton (GB) (Dansili {GB}) with 1 1/2 furlongs remaining and despite lugging down towards the rail stayed on strongly to score by 4 1/2 lengths from that rival, with a half length back to Zaaki (GB) (Leroidesanimaux {Brz}) in third. “We were delighted with his last run and he can travel and quicken well like his sire,” Aidan O’Brien commented on his 63rd Royal winner. “We thought a mile and a quarter would suit well and Ryan gave him a lovely ride. He can step back up to a mile and a half and he has a lot of options, but he’s been busy for the last few weeks and might have a break.”

Shanghai Bobby’s Shang Shang Shang Holds On In the Norfolk

Thoroughbred Daily News - 13 hours 17 min ago

   It was inconceivable that Wesley Ward would go home with a blank at Royal Ascot and Breeze Easy’s Apr. 26 Keeneland maiden special weight winner Shang Shang Shang (Shanghai Bobby) duly stepped up to provide the customary victory in the G2 Norfolk S. Quickest away under Joel Rosario in contrast to the barn’s G2 Queen Mary S. favourite Chelsea Cloisters (First Samurai), the 5-1 shot kept finding as Pocket Dynamo (Dialed In) fought hard and at the line it was just a nose that separated them, with Land Force (Ire) (No Nay Never) a half length back in third. Despite celebrating a 10th Royal winner, Ward was quick to send the attention elsewhere. “I want to say something about the jockey–he’s fabulous and put his time and effort in every day for me and that’s why he’s here,” he said. “This is the best–there’s nothing like it.”
