  • Description

    BALDRIC, A 20/1 OUTSIDER, AMERICAN-OWNED, FRENCH-TRAINED AND AUSTRALIAN-RIDDEN, WON THE 2,000 GUINEAS THE FIRST OF THE 1964 BRITISH CLASSICS RUN OVER A MILE TODAY (WEDNESDAY) AT NEWMARKET.

    OWNED BY MRS. HOWELL JACKSON, FROM VIRGINIA, THE BAY COLT TRAINED IN FRANCE BY THE AUSTRALIAN ERNIE FELLOWS AND RIDDEN BY AUSTRALIAN JOCKEY BILL PYERS, WHO WAS HAVING HIS FIRST RACE EVER AT NEWMARKET, CAME THROUGH A FURLONG OUT TO WIN COMFORTABLY.

    SECOND AND THIRD WERE TWO BRITISH COLTS, BOTH 28/1 LONGSHOTS, FABERGE RIDDEN BY JOE MERCER AND BALUSTRADE RIDDEN BY BILLY WILLIAMSON OF AUSTRALIA.

    SHOWDOWN, THE MOST FANCIED BRITISH CONTENDER, STARTING 5/1 FAVOURITE, WAS FOURTH AFTER BEING IN FRONT TWO FURLONGS OUT.

    THIS WAS THE FIFTH SUCCESSIVE BRITISH CLASSIC WON BY A FOREIGN HORSE.

    BALDRIC IS AMERICAN-BRED, A SON OF ROUND TABLE OUT OF TWO CITIES.

    THE RACE WAS THE RICHEST EVER IN BRITAIN, WORTH GBP40,000. THE HEAVILY BACKED PORT MERION WAS NEVER SEEN WITH A CHANGE NOR WAS THE MUCH FANCIED IRISH HOPE MARCO POLO.

    THE RACE WAS RUN IN BRILLIANT SUNSHINE WITH A STIFF BREEZE, ON SOFT GOING.
