Baaeed – The best horse in the world – Go home stylishly with Royal Ascot | Royal Ascot

Perhaps a few latecomers were still trying to park when Baaeed crossed the line at Queen Anne Stakes on Tuesday to consolidate its position as the world’s highest rated horse. But perhaps no one wants to miss his next start if he faces Coroebus, the winner of the afternoon St. James’s Palace Stakes at Goodwood’s Sussex Stakes next month.

Like Frankel in the same contest 10 years ago, Baaeed had a long chance of meeting with the ruthless defense of his undefeated record. He moved smoothly for Jim Crowley behind the second most popular Real World before he got in the hands in the last quarter mile. He crossed the line almost two lengths in front of the real world at the Order of Australia, the winner of the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Mile, and was third behind by four more lengths.

“It can never be easier,” Crawley said. “It was like a clockwork just to stretch him to the very end of the race. It was a really perfect race.

“Baaeed plans to do the Sterner test first. We know that. He’s doing everything perfectly right now. He galloped very well over a mile and got a mile. Make a serious foot turn beyond-it’s really unnatural [and] I don’t think 10 furlongs will be a problem.

“We are confident that we will continue to test him, but we are confident that he will continue to find. You will wait a lifetime for the horse to come this way. The only way I can explain that feeling. Is when you go to the amusement park and you are waiting for a high speed ride. That’s how you felt before you got on him. “

Baaeed trainer William Haggas wants to try him at some stage in a quarter mile at the International Stakes in York, where Frankel took the same step 10 years ago. But Frankel first went to Goodwood, and Baid was able to do the same well.

“He travels a lot and calms down a lot. [and] This is a very important part of going further, “says Haggis. “We all want to give it a try. It’s done in York. In the meantime, it’s about whether we’re going to put in Goodwood. It’s possible that we’ll be Goodwood next.”

Baaeed had the highest price at 8-13 in Sussex Stakes and Coroebus had to wait for a run at St. James’s Palace Stakes before going home with his neck and was offered 4-1.

However, Haggis may feel that German 2,000 guinea winner Maljoom might have had a Group 1 double on the day he was able to find a running room half the distance from Halong. .. He showed an extraordinary foot turn on the line, within half the length of Coroebus, which was enough for fourth place behind Lusail and My Prospero.

Coroebus was the 16th 2,000 Guinea winner at St. James’s Palace Stakes after the war and the second winner at Godolphin Operations following the 2013 Dawn Approach.

“It was a tough and gritty performance,” said Coroebus trainer Charlie Appleby. “I felt that it was the class and determination that led us there.

“I’m sure [a meeting with Baaeed] I would like to discuss it in the next few weeks. It’s always a great race.Older horses and 3-year-old horses took on each other and we were confident [beforehand] Hopefully I’m doing it behind the scenes today. I think it’s still very much discussed. “

The long-awaited meeting between Australia’s and US top sprinters Nature Strip and Golden Pal didn’t come true as expected as Golden Pal couldn’t pick up on a two-furlong pole after walking around slowly. ..

Nature Strip, however, has come a long way in front of European sprinters with a comprehensive four-and-a-half-year long success. Chris Waller’s gelding may try to complete the Group 1 Sprint Double at Platinum Jubilee Stakes on Saturday. Waller’s foal’s internal affairs are probably a favorite, and Campanel is also a major candidate, like Golden Pal, a member of the Wesley Ward party in the United States.

Nature Strip (3-1) replaced Home Affairs (4-1) as a favorite after Tuesday’s great success, replacing Campanile, who had already won two winners at the 7-1 Royal Meeting. ..
