Hughes "Over The Moon" At Matching Dettori Benchmark

Wednesday, 17th October 2012

Meanwhile, jockey Richard Hughes' record-equalling feat at Windsor makes him only the second jockey in British history to ride seven winners on a single card. Frankie Dettori achieved the feat in 1996 on Queen Elizabeth II Stakes day at Ascot. Hughes almost won the last race on the card to make it eight, but had to settle for third place. He told racingpost.com: "I feel over the moon. I always said I might do it one day at Windsor - my lucky track. Without [trainer] Richard Hannon I wouldn't be doing any of it."
