The Winners Enclosure's Top Three Rides Of The Flat Season So Far

James Doyle And Sea Of Class

The Winners Enclosure Third Best Ride Of The Flat Season

With so many good rides this year to narrow it just down to three has been extremely difficult and with still some really important races left in the season there could be more chopping and changing to come but for the time being here is ride of the season number three.

The bronze medal award for third best ride of the season goes to James Doyle on brd Sea Of Class at the Curragh in the Irish Oaks.

This horse has gone on to be a superstar this season taking two Group 1s with the latest at York in the Yorkshire Oaks but that day at the curragh really made a name for this horse and it was hugely thanks to jockey James Doyle with his superb timing of the run to just get up and take the win from Forever Together and Aidan O'Brien.

Oisin Murphy And Roaring Lion

Taking the silver medal in our pick for ride of the year only took place on Saturday at Leopardstown in the Irish Champion Stakes and it goes to the superstar jockey this season in Oisin Murphy with his perfectly timed run with three time winning Group 1 horse this season Roaring Lion.

The John Gosden trained three year old has been doing battle back and fourth with the now retired Saxon Warrior and this race was one of there closest battles to date.

The Aidan O'Brien trained 2000 Guineas winners had first run for home but Murphy sat comfortable on the Lion and timed the charge to just get up and claim the Group 1, what a race and what a season for both the horse and the jockey.

Silvestre De Sousa And Dark Vision

The Time has come to present The Winners Enclosure prize for the current ride of the season to date and we have gave to the current Champion Jockey Silvestre De Sousa for his amazing performance on board Dark Vision in the Group 2 Qatar Vintage Stakes at the Glorious Goodwood Festival.

This performance was outstanding by the jockey and horse for many reasons, the first being he came from last position with not much of the race left to run to go and win comfortably.

The second this was only his third run and being upped to Group company for the first time and he showed immense pace but the jockey showed immense patience and trust in the horse to leave it so late to make a move.

This is our ride of the year and i'm sure many of you will agree but if you don't agree with any of our decisions fell free to tweet in your suggestions @TWEnclosure.
