Hootenanny Wins at Ascot for Ward

Little Mike goes past the stands for the first time in the 2012 Arlington Million

Derrick Smith, Mrs. John Magnier and Michael Tabor's Hootenanny, who worked over the Arlington International Racecourse turf in preparation for his trip abroad, won the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot on Wednesday to give the United States its first win of this year's royal meeting.  

Breaking from the stands side in the massive 25-horse field, the $75,000 Keeneland September purchase dominated the straight five-furlong event from start to finish, winning by 3½ effortless lengths in his grass debut.

Trained by Wesley Ward, the son of first crop stallion Quality Road followed a similar route that proved successful last year for the conditioner when he worked No Nay Never at Arlington en route to winning the Group II Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot.  

That talented colt would later be shipped to Europe again to win the Group I Prix Morny at Deauville in August in impressive fashion.
