LET THE HORSES DO THE TALKING, IF YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT THE HORSES ARE SAYING YOU WILL KNOW FOR SURE THAT YOU ARE BLOODHORSE ILLITERATE.
British Horseracing Authority personnel way off the pace in the Horsemanship Stakes. Out of touch, and out of tune with all the key providers of British Horseracing to include the horses.
The outstanding achievement on this the second day at Royal Ascot, must surely be the performance given by BYWAYS & MAXIME GUYON to win the 3.50 Prince of Wales’s Stakes worth £255,465 to the winner. BYWAYS trained by A FABRE (FR) for owner K ABDULLA 5/2 fav. Fabre confirmed that this was Guyon’s first ride at Royal Ascot, that he was absolutely delighted with the result, confirming that “he (Guyon) managed to succeed in getting a clear run for BYWAYS throughout the race, no problem, riding with his hands, and heels, balance and timing in preference to using the whip.” MAXIME GUYON so ... so young, yet has that certain quiet charm and flair to match his exciting talent. A joy to watch.
