Godolphin secures Leading Owner title at Royal Ascot


Godolphin received the Leading Owner Award at Royal Ascot for a second successive year following an exceptional meeting that saw five winners in the Royal Blue silks.

This season’s 2,000 Guineas hero Coroebus (pictured) started the week with a thrilling victory in Tuesday’s G1 St James’s Palace Stakes, with Dubai Future scoring in the Listed Wolferton Stakes on the same card.

Secret State notched a third straight success in Thursday’s King George V Handicap, while two wins on Saturday included Noble Truth in the G3 Jersey Stakes and Naval Crown edging out Creative Force in a thrilling G1 Platinum Jubilee Stakes.

Hugh Anderson, Godolphin Managing Director (UK and Dubai) said: “I am delighted to have received the Leading Owner trophy on behalf of Godolphin and our Principal His Highness Sheikh Mohammed.

“It has been a fantastic week for our whole team, from Godolphin Stables to Moulton Paddocks and our breeding operation and stallions. Winning this trophy is testament to the hard work of the entire team, all of whom deserve congratulation.

“I must also thank Ascot for putting on the most marvellous festival of outstanding racing.”
