Throwback Race Of The Day For Tuesday - 08/06/21


As we edge closer and closer towards a superb five days at Royal Ascot we are today going to look back at one of the most special races from last year's festival.

The superstar stayer Stradivarius was all the talk at the 2020 royal meeting with him going for a third straight win in the Ascot Gold Cup.

The superstar seven year old has seen it all in the staying ranks over the last few years and he keeps on coming back, going for a fourth straight win in the race this year which would put him next to the likes of Yeats in the record books.

Stradivarius last season headed to Ascot having done two seasons of landing the Gold Cup, Goowood Cup, Yorkshire Cup and Doncaster Cup.

The son of Sea The Stars was the headline act in June and with him drifting slightly before the off he could not have been a much easier winner of the race seeing off Nayef Road by 10 lengths.

Ahead him trying to create more history at the meeting this season, we are looking back at the demolition job that was his performance last term.
