Galileo Gold beat hot favourite, The Gurkha, to win the prestigious Gr.1 St James’s Palace Stakes at Ascot on Tuesday. Frankie Dettori rode him with absolute skill at every stage of the race allowing him to storm the finish line well ahead of the two other Guineas winners. Galileo Gold gave trainer Hugo Palmer his first Royal Ascot win. Sheikh Joaan al-Thani was there to collect the trophy from HRH Prince Harry with huge teams of jubilant supporters all around.
