Richard Hughes – going training

Champion jockey, Richard Hughes, is aiming to finish his career in style as he rides third favourite Eagle Top in today’s King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

Hughes has decided to call time on an illustrious career to focusing on training and will do so in just under 10 days time.

He has started his marketing campaign attract owners and a call to join the 3 times Champion Jockey in his exciting new career training from the historic Danebury Stables in Stockbridge, has been doing the rounds.

The 42-year-old has been booked to ride the John Gosden trained colt today but all eyes will be on unbeaten Derby winner, Golden Horn.

Should Golden Horn win he would become only the fourth horse to win the Derby, Eclipse Stakes and King George in the same season since the foundation of the Ascot race in 1951.

Installed as heavy favourite with the bookies, at a price of 4-11, Golden Horn is most certainly the horse to beat.

The race will be shown on Tellytrack – check the fields and times here.
