Goldikova, Canford Cliffs to Meet at Royal Ascot

Goldikova top story.
THE clash everyone was hoping would kick off Royal Ascot on June 14 is set to become a reality after Goldikova’s trainer Freddie Head revealed to the Racing Post the wonder mare would take on Canford Cliffs in the Queen Anne Stakes.

The contest – the first of three Group 1s that guarantee the royal meeting starts with a bang – was last yearwon by Goldikova on her first visit to the course. But after the record-breaking six-year-old made a successful return in the Prix d’Ispahan eight days ago, Head refused to commit to another crack at Ascot, saying: “I won’t be drawn now”.

Head said on Sunday: “We are going to Ascot for the Queen Anne. She has come out of the d’Ispahan very well and will improve for that run.”

Would love, love, LOVE to go there in person to watch history be made. I'm really envious of those who will be there in person to watch. Any idea whether these races will be televised by HRTV or TVG? Because I am so willing to stay up all night or get up early to watch.
My cousin and her husband will almost certainly be there in person. Jealous...
Great race!! American trainers should learn from the euros. There race horses so RACE them.
Wow, I would love to go to Ascot someday. I went to York on my honeymoon.
