Joseph O’Brien has won the glory of Group 1 as a jockey and is now a trainer at Royal Ascot.Royal Ascot

Joseph O’Brien was in the winner’s enclosure talking to reporters as jockeys came out for the next race after winning the Prince of Wales Stakes here at State of Rest on Wednesday. “Thank you, Michael” When Michael Barzalona congratulated him, he reminded O’Brien himself of being in the weighing room and competing with many riders this week in June 2015.

O’Brien rode six winners at Royal Ascot as a stable jockey for his father, Aidan. This includes So You Think at the Prince of Wales Stakes 10 years ago and the reading light of the Gold Cup, the most historic event at the conference. In 2014.

But his achievements since hanging his boots to get a trainer’s license have been amazing. Two Melbourne Cup winners, Irish Derby and St Leger, are one of the main highlights in the four years from 2017 to 2020, and O’Brien is still shy about his 30th birthday for 11 months. I am.

The State of Rest 5-1 victory here on Wednesday was another landmark. O’Brien was the first person to train on a Group 1 winner at Royal Ascot since the introduction of the Pattern System in 1971. The tournament arrived thanks to a pre-race “simplify things” plan, according to winner 20-year-old jockey Shane Cross, after 43 losers had entered until 2016.

Chariya, who is about to become Japan’s first royal winner, has run in the past, but Christian Demuro has taken the lead from the State of Rest as the cross progressed at a steady pace for the first three-quarters of the mile. I did. Demuro seemed ready to pick the leader straight, but when Cross demanded an extension from the State of Rest, he soon had the advantage that Shariar was clearly struggling to close. Opened.

The 10-11 favorite Bay Bridge then had a crack, but he couldn’t find any acceleration to drag State of Rest into combat, and Cross still had a one-length advantage on the line.

“If I could lead the race, I really had a chance to win,” O’Brien said. “After Halong, we were very happy with the race setup and the horses were very tough and real as usual.

“Shane gave the horse the most amazing ride quality. He was a very cool customer and proved it today. We really wanted to lead. He is tough and loves fighting. is.

“I feel it [pressure] A little more as a trainer, maybe because I’m old.I placed a few horses [at Royal Ascot] Over the years, we knew that the winner would eventually come, but it’s very special in races like Prince of Wales. You lose every day, this game is all about losing, and you then have to learn and reorganize and go again. “

Aidan O’Brien was at the meeting when 6-5 favorite Little Big Bear defeated Rocket Rodney at Windsor Castle Stakes and Karl Burke’s Dramatics won Queen Mary Stakes, another boy’s speed test on the card. I removed the mark. In an impressive way under Danny Tadhope.

Tudhope has always traveled sinisterly behind a strong pace, firing Dramatized towards the decisive lead of one furlong. The jockey dropped the whip shortly thereafter, but it didn’t make any difference as the winner returned home almost two lengths.

Thank you for your feedback.

Jun of Irad Ortiz had much less to celebrate afterwards. During the difficult week of American jockeys, Steward continued to ban him for five days due to his careless ride on Wesley Ward’s Love Rains. Officials have discovered that Ortiz had an early left-handed drift of Love Rains, causing a chain reaction of interference with four rivals.

Ortiz, who replaced Frankie Dettori as a ward rider at this year’s meeting, missed a break by riding a golden pal at a stall in front of the King’s Stand Stakes on Tuesday. He has two more rides for the ward at the conference, riding on Friday’s Holyrood Palace Handicap Lucin and Saturday’s featured Platinum Jubilee Stakes Canpanel.
