Taghrooda takes aim at Ascot history 


SHE DID IT! 
TAGHROODA QUEEN OF ASCOT! Classic-winning 3-year-old filly Taghrooda faced older males July 26 and came up the best in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes Sponsored by QIPCO Champions Series (Eng-I) at Ascot.

The Shadwell homebred became just the second Investec (Epsom) Oaks (Eng-I) winner to take the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes in the same year. She has joined 1976 English and French Horse of the Year Pawneese as the only fillies to complete that considerable double.

ACROSS THE U.S. AND AROUND THE WORLD, GRADE 1 RACING AT ITS BEST!
 
IRISH DERBY FESTIVAL

It's Australia in an easy win in the Irish Derby!


At The Races Irish Derby special section
Group 1 Irish Derby:  Unless the ground turns boggy, AUSTRALIA, the Epsom Derby winner, will go on Saturday at the Curragh.  Six likely challengers include KINGSTON HILL, FASCINATING ROCK, GEOFFREY CHAUCER, ORCHESTRA, KINGFISHER, AND PONFEIGH.  Kingston Hill, second to Australia at Epsom appears to be the most serious threat to the Galileo-Ouija Board son.

The O'Briens have been on weather-watch and will not run the star of the show if there is too much give in the ground, but despite plenty of rain being forecast on Thursday night, only five millimetres fell and the ground remained good to firm.   Raising the excitement level is Australia's brilliant parents, Galileo in 2001 and Oaks heroine Ouija Board three years later managed to pull off the English-Irish Derby double, and Australia is a long odds-on shot with the bookmakers to give trainer Aidan O'Brien his 11th win in the Curragh showpiece.
