Since I'm unable to watch the KG6&QE race tomorrow morning, I'm hoping there will be a replay during tomorrow afternoon's Day At the Races program on Fox Prime Ticket.

Enable wins after battling Crystal Ocean through the stretch. She is just wonderful.

Enable so brave kept fighting to the end- would not let Crystal Ocean get by. Great race by both horses. Her stiffest challenge yet and the great mare prevailed. I noticed Frankie kind of pushed CO over from the 3 path over to the rail. Perhaps this helped his momentum a bit? Race of the year so far, IMHO.

Awesome to see her back in the winner's circle. After her first couple of lacklustre runs this season, I was afraid that she had started to lose interest.

King George was definitely the best race of the year so far, and will be hard to top. What a gutsy effort from both horses -- Crystal Ocean was passed and came back and put his head back in front, and then Enable just dug in a little bit more to prevail. What a treasure she is!

So happy to see this. He and Enable are my favorites. I hope Too Darn Hot runs well tomorrow.

Amazingly 3 years in a row actually :D He becomes only the 2nd horse to win 3 and the first to win 3 consecutively! Love this little horse, he’s got the heart of a lion!

And both Dettori and Gosden have said that he does only as much as he needs to which is exactly what his sire did as well. It’s very clever in a way, that way he saves himself for the next race, not that I’m saying the horse is aware of that :lol:

Too Darn Hot wins the Sussex Stakes (GI)

2nd was Circus Maximus
3rd I Can Fly (by a whisker)

It seems the BC Mile is the big goal for Too Darn Hot this year!

Also just want to say, John Gosden is such a classy trainer! Always praising his staff and just now after TDH's win he was being interviewed by ITV and he asked them to interview one of his staff Maisie instead, she rides TDH at home so John said she deserved all the credit.
