I followed the whole Royal-Ascot meet very closely with great enthusiasm this year. Let me offer congratulations to Kinsale King. America's best 6 furlong sprinter, without question. Kinsale King made his first career start on turf at Ascot in the Golden Jubilee Stakes. He ran a blazing race, right at the front, for the entire 6 furlongs and was right there at race's end with a legit shot to win. Amazing for a first start on turf. Especially at Ascot. A track that can be very difficult to win over. Kinsale King was beaten only by Ballydoyle's new superstar, Starspangledbanner and Society Rock. Ultimately finishing 3rd of 24 starters. The Golden Jubilee Stakes winner, Starspangledbanner, had recently clocked a 9 second furlong in training. Ballydoyle's top trainer, Aiden O'Brien remarked that Starspangledbanner was the first horse he's ever trained to accomplish such a feat. Kinsale King put forth an awesome effort. Finishing ahead of noted sprinters like the Irish filly, Fleeting Spirit. Also, War Artist, Prime Defender, Total Gallery, Main Aim, and Showcasing. He's now going to stay in the UK and target the Darley July Cup as his next goal. Starspangledbanner is a colt that's going to be awfully difficult to beat. But Kinsale King's sprinting ability more than gives him an adequate shot. The only sprinter to date, anywhere else in the world that I've seen any faster than Starspangledbanner is Hong Kong's Sacred Kingdom. Who I believe is the world's best over 6 furlongs, bar none. JMO.
