Dartmouth added to King George field

The Queen’s Royal Ascot winner Dartmouth is a late entry for the Group One King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained Dartmouth won the Hardwicke Stakes at the Royal meeting over the same 12-furlong (2400m) distance as Saturday’s race.


The four-year-old has been introduced to the market as the second choice behind the odds-on favourite, Postponed, to give the monarch a second victory in the race named after her parents with Aureole winning in 1954.

“The horse is in exceptional form and the trainer has been delighted with his progress since Ascot,” the Queen’s racing manager John Warren said.

“Olivier Peslier, who rode him to such good effect in the Hardwicke, will ride him once again so there is continuity on that front.”
