Golden Horn set to make history this Saturday, 25th July?‏

Friday 24 July 2015

Golden Horn will face a maximum of 10 opponents at Ascot on Saturday, including challengers from France and Italy plus impressive Hardwicke Stakes victor Snow Sky, as he bids to become only the 14th colt to win the Investec Derby and King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (sponsored by QIPCO) in the same season. The last colt to achieve this feat was super sire Galileo, back in 2001.

If successful at Ascot on Saturday, he would become only the fourth horse to complete the Derby / Eclipse / King George treble following Nashwan (1989), Mill Reef (1971) and Tulyar (1952).

Saturday's renewal of the great race over 12 furlongs will be the 65th running, with prize money standing at a new record of £1,215,000. The whole card from Friday and Saturday of the King George VI Weekend will be live only on Racing UK.
