A great day at the races for Frankie Dettori at Royal Ascot 2019 on Gold Cup Day. Riding home 4 winners on day 3 to include The Ascot Gold Cup with Stradivarius.

The pairs back to back win int he Ascot Gold Cup, along with his Yorkshire Cup Stakes win, means they are still incontention for their 2nd £1M jackpot.

“What an amazing horse he is. He is a horse for the big occasion and I love him dearly,” said the Italian.

Stradivarius is now on a seven-race winning streak, with his last defeat coming on Champions Day in 2017.

Stradivarius returned in style winning The Matchbook Yorkshire Cup Stakes. The first race of three to claim the £1 Million bonus for the second time.

Frankie Dettori & Stradivarius claimed the £1 Million bonus back in 2018 after winning the Yorkshire Cup, Royal Ascot Cup and Goodwood Cup.

Stradivarius fought off the challenge from Aidan O’Brien’s Irish challenger Southern France to take victory.

Making his first appearance since his Champions Day triumph in October 2018, Stradivarius was the 4-5 favourite in the hands of his rider Frankie Dettori. Although saddled with a 3lb penalty, and under pressure early in the home straight, he responded generously to his rider’s urgings.

Dettori said: “It was brilliant. There was the penalty and he was a bit rusty. There wasn’t much of a pace, it was more of a sprint.

He’s a fighter and he’s got me out of trouble so many times. He just put his head down and went.

He’s going to be a big name in the staying division again.”

A delighted Gosden said: “Obviously this was a prep for the Gold Cup and he hadn’t been trained hard for this. The Gold Cup is two and a half miles, a different ball game.

He’s not the polished article yet. We hope to have that at Royal Ascot.”

Frankie Dettori & John Gosden are keen users of the Horse Weigh platforms to keep their horses in just the right condition.
