Telescope Agonisingly Close in Group 1 King George on Saturday.

Telescope, purchased as a yearling by John and Jake Warren, ran his heart out on Saturday to finish second in the King George and was beaten fair and square by the very brilliant Oaks winner Taghrooda who was carrying 15llbs less weight than him.

Buying and Selling

Postponed adds to list of Stakes Winners purchased by John and Jake Warren when he broke the track record winning the Listed Glasgow Stakes at Hamilton last week. He will now be aimed at the Gr.2 Great Voltigeur at York next month.

East India, sold by Highclere Stud on behalf of Franca Vittadini’s Grundy Bloodstock, won an important 7f maiden at the Curragh on Saturday, a race won in the past by the likes of Teofilo, New Approach and Australia. East India is out of Gr.1 Prix de la Foret winner Field of Hope and is half brother to four individual Group and Stakes performers. He was purchased by Blandford Bloodstock for £650k at Tattersalls Book 1 Sale last year.

Camelot storms to victory in the Investec Derby (Gr.1)

The Highclere Stud reared and consigned, Camelot, stormed to victory in the Investec Derby (Gr.1) today at Epsom.  It was his second Classic success as he also won the Qipco 2,000 Guineas (Gr.1) earlier this year.

Defeat never looked likely for this unbeaten three-year-old trained by Aidan O’Brien for the team at Ballydoyle, and ridden by Joseph O’Brien.  Camelot had previously cruised to victory in the Racing Post Trophy (Gr.1) at Doncaster last year, and may have the Triple Crown as a future target.

Aidan O’Brien said: “From day one Camelot has been exceptional so we have taken it race by race rather than been dictated by trip. He was very impressive in his two runs at two and we were over the moon with his first run of the year in the Guineas.”

Camelot was the most expensive yearling by Montjeu in 2010 having made 525,000gns at Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 when knocked down to Demi O’Byrne. Bred by Sheikh Abdulla Bin Isa Al-Khalifa, he is out of the Kingmambo mare Tarfah, who won the Group 3 Dahlia Stakes.
