Throwback Race For Wednesday

Highland Reel

Sticking with the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes theme we are going for 2016's renewal with winner Highland Reel showing a superb turn of foot to put the race to bed.

The son of Galileo went from the front in his usual style, controlling the pace of the race and that ultimately allowed him to get the run on the rest of the field.

Setting a steady gallop from the outside, he made it difficult for the horses who needed a fast pace to latch onto the back of and when it came for turning for home he had struggled off the main competition to land the Group One spoils.

It really is a fascinating watch how the tactics of Aidan O'Brien managed to land the horse the race.
