Royal Ascot ended with the highest number of winners carrying the USA suffix - five - since 2009, when seven scored.

The meeting kicked off with a double for American-breds, with Tepin, a daughter of Bernstein bred by Machmer Hall, winning the Queen Anne Stakes and Caravaggio, by Scat Daddy and bred by Windmill Manor Farms and partners, streaking clear in the Coventry Stakes.

Lady Aurelia, another daughter of Scat Daddy bred by owner Stonestreet Stables, made it a treble with her explosive victory in the Queen Mary Stakes, while the Kitten's Joy colt Hawkbill, bred by the Helen K Groves Revokable Trust, scored in the Tercentenary Stakes to make it four.

The five-timer was completed in the Albany Stakes by Brave Anna, a War Front sister to Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf winner Hit It A Bomb bred in the US by Evie Stockwell.

Overall at the meeting, Irish-breds led the way, frequenting the winner's enclosure 19 times. British-breds won the six other races at the meeting.
