Richard Hughes on Jacqueline wins Indian 1000 Guineas

  1. In my opinion, Richard Hughes made heavy weather of this race; while making his move on the outside at the 400m, Suraj Narredu came right alongside and Hughes got checked. Jacqueline is so classy that she carried him through. He made heavy weather of his rides on Smart Chieftain as well several years ago. I believe Mick Channon felt this too and jocked him off Youmazain in the Arc last year when the horse finished second to Zarkava. Interestingly, that horse finished second in this year’s Arc as well to Sea The Stars with Kieren Fallon on board.

  2. You’re absolutely right – Youmzain saves his best for Longchamp. The last two years he ran into two superstars that were too good for anyone.

    Sea The Stars is now at the Aga Khan’s Gilltown Stud in County Kildare, Ireland. I believe he is due to cover Zarkava after that mare visited the Aga Khan’s other Arc winner Dalakhani earlier.
