Who are the most successful jockeys at Royal Ascot? Read on to find out more.
The fans of horse racing always wait for the highly anticipated Royal Ascot race week and in fact, it offers a vast selection of different outcomes from a variety of exciting races. The history of Royal Ascot stretches back centuries, but who are the most recent top jockeys of the event?
Royal Ascot Top Jockeys
- Ryan Moore
Moore set a modern-day record with 9 winners at Royal Ascot in 2015. There is no doubt that along with the best flat jockey in the world, Ryan Moore is going to be nigh on impossible to keep off the scoreboard in the quest to be the top jockey at the meeting for the 5 times in the past 6 years.
- Frankie Dettori
This Italian guy did a great job in his career. Frankie Dettori has enjoyed many wins at the Royal meeting over the course and he will forever live in Ascot folklore for his unforgettable Magnificent 7 at the September meeting in 1996.
He has ridden the winner for 6 times of the Queen Anne the race which starts the meeting and he has shown his finesse with the fairer sex in the Ribblesdale the same number of times.
- Jamie spencer
He is the ultimate hold up jockey at Royal Ascot. He is a master and when he gets it right, then he will be the reason the frustration of the punters. He is best on Ascot’s mile-straight course.
For the straight course, he is taking a huge amount of money and this is why he can provide a suitable ride in the coming festival.
Stradivarius is now on a seven-race winning streak with his last loss coming here at Ascot in October 2018. He was the hot favourite after the last year’s victory and started the race with odds of even money.
There is no doubt that in recent times race betting is more difficult to decide upon and competitive, you’ll really need to concentrate properly to win a race. Along with this, you cannot deny the fact that the craziness of this sport continues to engage fans.
