Free Eagle is now responsible for creating an extremely dramatic finish to the Prince of Wale’s Stakes.
But fans and people who were backing the Grey Gatsby felt that justice was not served because the moment their horse sprinted towards home post it had trouble in running.
Kevin Ryan’s Grey Gatsby, who was famous for beating Australia in Ireland the previous year, was very close to inches of tasting another stupendous success here, but the winning post came more quickly.
If you think about the downfall of the Grey Gatsby, it all comes down to Frankie Dettori.
Western Hymn, who was riding it, during the third lap, moved up towards the outside of Grey Gatsby at a very early stage, which led him to be right behind the Free Eagle.
It is to be noted that Grey Gatsby never had the slightest chance to witness daylight up to the point where he was inside the final furlong.
It was at this time when Free Eagle rolled in the side of the far rail!
Dermot Weld, an Irish trainer is the reason behind Free Eagle’s victory who is also presumed to field for Forgotten Rules, which was most liked in the Thursday’s Gold Cup.
This got officially confirmed despite some concerns about the ground.
Weld stated that when there is a good horse assigned to you, then it makes the training all the more easier.
But in this case, it wasn’t very easy. He was diagnosed with heavy head cold a couple of weeks back and even during the tournament it was highly doubtful, but what matters is that we got him back on the right day.
A little while ago, Wesley Ward, who is an American trainer, won the Queen Mary Stakes for the second time.
This happened after six long years when Jealous Again sprinted five lengths off the field.
She was given permission to kick-start at 13-2, but there was a reputation, which was established forward in bringing the most shocking and fast juveniles from around the Atlantic for the week and his Acapulco was packed off as 5-2 favourite, in spite of being defeated on her one and only racecourse outing.
Ward has always been very enthused and magnanimous about her build-up, and went about describing her fabulous work on turf to be the best he had ever seen. The crowd also finally acknowledged what he has been witnessing when Ryan Moore packed her to go home with over two furlongs to go.
Although the winner of the race was Splendid, Easton Angel also equally had a good shot. However, she was defeated after having to race on the other side of the course.
Also, she started the run post Acapulco gone clear!
Acapulo was keenly observed by many as she has very unique due to an impressive physical specification for a filly that is only two years old.
Ward was very confused and said that if anyone takes a look at her, she would appear to be four and not two!
