Solow shines again at Goodwood
29 Jul 2015 21:09
Solow continued his stellar season with an authoritative display in the Qatar Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.
-
With the defection of leading three-year-old Gleneagles taking some of the gloss off the Group One feature, Freddy Head's French challenger was the 2-5 favourite to add to his previous top-level triumphs this year in the Dubai Turf, Prix d'Ispahan and Queen Anne Stakes.
-
The market leader was quickly away in the hands of Maxime Guyon and was in the perfect position to strike in the straight, tracking the pacesetting Arod.
-
Arod refused to go down without a fight, but Solow had too many guns and was good value for his half-length success.
-
Rank outsider Gabrial ran an excellent race to finish third, with Lockinge hero Night Of Thunder slightly disappointing.
-
Guyon said: "He is unbelievable. He's won four Group Ones this year - it's crazy.
-
"He is easy to ride. He doesn't pull. After he uses his turn of foot, he stops a little bit, which is why he doesn't win easy, but he's really good.
-
"We didn't go very fast, but he is very relaxed and he has a very good turn of foot.
-
"For a jockey, he is the best. I think he is the best horse in my career."
