This article contains some of the top horse racing results for today at William Hill. They include the English horse racing results as well as the French horse racing results.
Almanzor Denies Aga Khan a Win at the French Derby
Almanzor, the 20/1 outsider at William Hill online casino, repudiated Aga Khan a derby double in one of the horse racing results for today.
He came in with a very strong run towards the last furlong to defeat Zarak in the event that was held at the Prix du Jockey-Club.
Zarak, in the usual red and green colors that were carried to victory by Harzand at the Epsom, maintained a strong run and carried it towards the closing stages but couldn’t keep up with the winner.
Foundation, who’s origin, is the John Gosden Yard, had plenty of support right before the race began and had odds of 4/1 to win but was defeated comfortably with the winner Almanzor.
Moreover, Roger Charlton’s Imperial Aviator also failed to perform to the expectations of various punters and spectators.
Unlike Epsom’s classic distance of a mile, the French Derby is usually run over 10 furlongs with the leader in the race developing into the favorite candidate for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
According to William Hill’s odds, Almanzor is put at 16/1 to win the European racing’s all-aged event that will be held later on this year in October. The race is usually held in Chantilly.
When interviewed by the Mail’s reporter, jockey Rouget said he believes that Almanzor is improving and that he had no doubts about his colt taking part in the event and giving an outstanding performance like he did.
“If we thought he wasn’t in the best condition, we wouldn’t have left him to take part in the race, but from the performance, we believe that he will be a better horse on better grounds in future,” he adds.
According to his trainer, Dermot Weld, he said that he would consider running the horse come September in the St Leger event that will be held at Doncaster. “Only time will tell. Hazard has been a good English Leger horse or, undeniably if it was a wet autumn, a brilliant colt for the Arc.”
Ryan Moore and Minding Get Out of Trouble to Win the Oaks Race
In english horse racing results for today, Minding won the Oaks race by a whisker after suffering a bad run on the turn for home before he got up and won the race.
Minding displayed an exemplary performance to record victory at the Oaks event that was held at Epsom. This was after she faced trouble in running that seemed to have blown her chances of winning the race.
However, she did recover and consequently became the first filly since Kazzia in 2002 to win this racing event in addition to the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket.
Despite her defeat at the Irish Guineas two weeks ago, Minding had odds of 10/11 to win the event. She traveled well but ran out of options at the last turn for home when Turret Rocks and Australian Queen tired in front of her.
This forced Ryan Moore, the jockey to strike her on the face using the whip to get her to increase her pace.
Bravely, Minding responded well and took a gap up the inside rail and within no time, she on the heels of the leading horse, Architecture, who had been leading for the better part of the race under Frankie Dettori.
By the time they were heading towards the finish line, Minding had already recovered some length and was within reach of Architecture, dismissing any questions on whether she will maintain the stamina for the remaining mile. Harlequin, on the other hand, remained in the third place, eight lengths behind Architecture.
After the race, Aidan O’Brein, who is Minding’s trainer, had this to say to the reporters: “Minding is an outstanding filly. She has a great mind, the stamina, class and importantly, the speed. She has everything a champion requires to win a race. In my opinion, Ryan did brilliantly to win on Minding after what she underwent.”
Hugo Palmer, Architecture’s trainer, had this to say after the event: “There race had several points when I thought, “We’ve got this.” My God, Minding is good.”
The architecture was the clear-cut winner by the time the race was remaining with a length and three-quarters, but things got a little bit tight when the champions rose to the occasion and denied him the victory.
Day after Day won the MSW Race
In English horse racing results, Day after Day won the MSW race that was held at Bel after the 25/1 shot beat the hot favorite Sabrina Ballerina.
The storm of noise emerging from the stand dropped away in near silence when Day after Day neared the final furlong of the course. It also dawned to many that the 2/5 favorite Sabrina Ballerina was about to come second to the underdog.
Sabrina still had almost three-quarters of a length to cover when Day after Day crossed the post to secure a win at the event with the hashes on the terraces being replaced by a buzz of spectators questioning why and how the favorite had been defeated.
At the end of the Race, Jose L. Ortiz had this to say: “Today, Day after Day ran a great race which paid off. It’s disappointing to everyone that Sabrina was beaten, but they have to understand that this is how racing is. Everyone expected him to win, but Day emerged victorious at the end of it.”
It later emerged that the winner was unlikely going to participate in any event this season, though he will be kept in training. As for the favorite, plans will be considered over the coming few days.
