Novellist Wins UK King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes
At Ascot in the UK, German 4YO entire Novellist (Monsun-Night Lagoon, by Lagunas) scored a brilliant 5-lengths victory for trainer Andreas Wohler in the £1 million Gr1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2400m) for 3YOs+, over 3YO colts Trading Leather (Teofilo-Night Visit, by Sinndar) & Hillstar (Danehill Dancer-Crystal Star, by Mark of Esteem). Novellist's third Gr1 triumph made it back-to-back victories in this race for Germany & Wohler following Danedream's success last year. Novellist boosted his already imposing record to 8 wins (including the Gr1 Gran Premio del Jockey Club & Gr1 Prix de Saint-Cloud) & a placing (in the Gr1 Deutsches Derby) from just 10 starts for £1,070,078 earnings.
