Ascot Wraps Up

June 23, 2019

Royal Ascot wrapped up Saturday and you’d be hard pressed to argue Frankie Dettori and Blue Point were not the stars of the meet. Blue Point took his second Group 1 of the short 5 day meet when he easily won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes under James Doyle. Just 4 days earlier he took the Group 1 Kings Stand Stakes. Trainer Charles Appleby had this to say about his star and the feat he performed:

“We wanted to see how he was after the King’s Stand but it was always in the back of our minds that if he won on Tuesday we would look at the Diamond Jubilee. The first signs were encouraging when he came out of the race as well as we could hope. On Wednesday morning he had a jog and on Thursday and Friday easy hacks. He got his weight back up as well. His racing weight was 536kg on Tuesday and it was 536kg when he left this morning. So I couldn’t have been happier with the way we had the horse. Blue Point is going to retire this year, he’s a superstar.”

Defoe took the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes under Andrea Atzeni who would come back a few races later and win the Workingham Stakes on Cape Byron.

Space Traveler under David Tudhope prevailed in the Group 3 Jersey Stakes.

Dettori did not add to his 7 win total for the meet but that was still good enough to land him leading rider honors.
