How Much Can You Remember From 2018?

As the flat season of 2018 is drawing to a close, there have been so many moments to savour from this campaign, with several stand out performances.

Cast your mind back to May, with the first two classics of the season looming. Both the 2000 and 1000 Guineas were wide open with no clear favourite in either race.

Aiden O’Brien had sent over his usual brigade to try dominate both fields, and it was the Irish Trainer who picked up where he left off last year.

Saxon Warrior, out of Deep Impact, landed the spoils, before an unlikely success for Sean Levey on the Sunday, as Richard Hannon trained Billesdon Brook caused a major upset.

A few weeks later and Derby weekend was upon us. Ballydoyle once again dictated proceedings in the English Classics by landing the Oaks with Forever Together, before Masar, ridden by William Buick and owned by Godolphin handled the tough Epsom course the best in the Investec Derby.

The Charlie Appleby trained three-year-old would then unfortunately miss the remainder of the season.Then came Royal Ascot - Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for more than £7.3m in prize money.

This meeting has helped produced several household names such as Frankel, Black Caviar and Yeats in recent years, so who was ready to add their name to the history books?

Without Parole maintained his unbeaten record when landing the St James Palace Stakes, shortly after Blue Point ran away from his opposition in the Kings Stand.

Alpha Centauri demolished her rivals in the Coronation Stakes a day after an intense battle in the Ascot Gold Cup went the way of John Gosden’s Stradivarius.

Harry Angel getting caught up in the stalls allowed Merchant Navy to seal the Diamond Jubilee a few hours before Bacchus turned over the shortest price favourite (Dreamland) in the Wokingham for some time.We also saw some potential stars of the future, in Calyx, Signora Cabello and Soldiers Call.

With more sun and champagne been shared and celebrated at the Coral Eclipse, Glorious Goodwood and the Ebor Festival, it really has been a special year.So how much can you remember? Here are 15 questions from the 2018 Flat Season:
