Wednesday, June 22, 2016 RSS Feeds

The five-day Royal Ascot meet is considered one of the most prestigious race meetings in the world. The race meet has always attracted many international runners, which have continued to increase each year.

Strong international ‘flavor' was firmly on display this year, with Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, and the U.S. all being represented.

Horses bred in the United States had a very successful Royal Ascot meet, bringing home five victories, the highest number since 2009, according to the Racing Post.

The meeting started off with a bang when champion Tepin, bred in Kentucky by Machmer Hall, defeated a talented field in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes. A short time later Caravaggio, a 2-year-old son of Scat Daddy bred by Windmill Manor Farms, remained undefeated in three starts with a sharp score in the G2 Coventry Stakes.

The following day, Lady Aurelia, another talented juvenile by Scat Daddy, zipped to a seven-length victory in the G2 Queen Mary Stakes. Lady Aurelia was bred in Kentucky by her owner, Stonestreet Stable.

Hawkbill, a son of Kitten's Joy bred by the Helen K. Groves Revokable Trust, took the G3 Tercentenary Stakes, while Brave Anna, a daughter of War Front bred in Kentucky by her owner, Evie Stockwell, won the G3 Albany Stakes.
