Three Best Races From The 2019 Flat Season

King George and Queen Elizabeth Stakes

We have had to really think hard about which races to put in the top three races of the season with so many talented duals throughout the campaign, but we feel we have made some good decisions.

The first race we want to start with is the Group One King George and Queen Elizabeth Stakes where we saw arguably the best battle of the season coming up to the line.

With the majority of the best middle distance horses in the same field at once it was never going to disappoint and the two market leaders Enable and Crystal Ocean gave us a spectacle.

With two furlongs to go the pair went clear of the field and were neck and neck all the way up until the final strides where although Enable was headed she managed to get back up and keep her impressive unbeaten run going.

Long Distance Cup

The second race that makes it into this esteemed category came at the end of the flat season on British Champions Day at Ascot in the Group Two Long Distance Cup.

Stradivarius had been the leading stayer for the past two seasons landing back to back Weatherby's Hamilton Stayers £1 million bonus for landing the Yorkshire Cup, Ascot Gold Cup and Goodwood Cup consecutively.

The five year old was looking to finish his season off in style with a second win in the Long Distance Cup but Kew Gardens was the horse to spoil proceedings in what was a thrilling contest.

Kew Gardens went for home with two furlongs to go and left John Gosden's horse struggling for the first time since this race back in 2017.

Stradivarius got back on terms with Aidan O'Brien's runner and looked sure to just hold on for the win but Kew Gardens got up close home to cause one of the shocks of the season.

It sets up a serious battle next season but this has to go down as one of the races of the year.

Epsom Derby

We think we have saved the best contest of the flat season until last with the Epsom Derby always a race that punters and racing fans look forward to.

However, this seasons truly did throw out the spectacle of the season with four possible horses coming up to the line all with a chance of winning.

Aidan O'Brien took a strong hold over the field, entering seven runners in the field and having four of the top five home in the race.

The 1 mile 4f Classic went as ever with a strong pace and explosive finish but this time when the photo-finish was called punters and bookies were still none the wiser who had won with it being that close.

Anthony Van Dyck for the master trainer managed to get the rail and fly home under a great ride by Seamie Heffernan in what was our race of the season.
