Welcome It gives me great pleasure to welcome you back to York in something nearer “normal” circumstances. As the Prime Minister stressed, the coming weeks will require a significant degree of personal responsibility, please play your part in keeping each other healthy this evening. Our only evening meeting means Music Showcase, an event that combines great racing with music, as we look forward to the performance of Rick Astley after the last race. This is also the seventh day of The Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival, now in its lucky thirteenth year and firmly established thanks to the generous and loyal backing of our week-long sponsors, Sky Bet and Goldsborough Hall. In Yorkshire we have nine superb racecourses, over 120 training yards, the National Horseracing College and Goffs UK and Jack Berry House, all making for a successful racing industry in the county. Each track has its own unique attributes and we hope that you have, or will enjoy, what each has to offer; not only over this Festival, but throughout the year. It would be lovely to see a bumper crowd on Sunday for the finale at Pontefract. The most generous support of tonight’s sponsors has also helped stage a programme valued at over £100,000 with a Listed contest, the British Stallion Studs EBF Lyric Stakes, as the valuable feature for filles and mares, over ten furlongs. Offering star quality from Ireland is Alpine Star, a Group One winning filly from the County Kildare operation of Jessica Harrington. Sea Empress from the Newmarket yard of William Haggas, carries the colours of her illustrious father, Sea The Stars, who won over course and distance in the Juddmonte International of 2009. We know a lot of you reading this card will be first time racegoers, so I’d encourage you to explore a track voted as the best in Britain, by both the Racegoers Club and Racehorse Owners Association. Please use the maps on pages 6-7 & pages 8-9 to guide you, or just ask any of the team in the teal blazers who will be happy to help. My tip is to stand close to the rail as the horses race past, you can feel and as well as hear the thunder of hooves. After racing a man who has already sold more than 40 million albums worldwide will be live on the stage to the south of the stands. A special request from our plumbers, please use all the facilities around the course during the evening, rather than all choosing to spend a penny just before concert time! Also, please respect our neighbours and home city as you make your way out this evening. Thank you for your support today and during the wider Go Racing in Yorkshire Summer Festival. We hope to welcome you back again tomorrow for racing followed by McFLY on the stage, well done if you’ve already booked your admission as a picnic in Clocktower Enclosure is your only option for that spontaneous afternoon. After that, our preparations will go up a gear as we are very much looking forward to staging our flagship meeting, the Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival (18-21 August) where some of the best horses from around the world look set to compete over four days of top-class racing, fashion and fun.

Please take your belongings with you and proceed out of the area quickly and quietly. If we are unable to re-occupy the stands, you may be invited to return to your car or coach. Departure from car and coach parks will be under the direction of the Police. The foregoing is a precautionary tale. 11

Official BHA Ratings The BHA Handicappers allot ratings to horses once they have taken part usually in three races to enable the Handicappers to make a numerical assessment of each horse’s ability. The principal purpose of the ratings is to determine the weight to be carried by each runner in handicap races, with the Handicappers aiming to provide each participant with an equal chance based on its best recent form under its optimum conditions. A horse rated 100, for example, would be set to carry 1lb more than a horse rated 99 (ignoring any penalties or allowances). The ratings published in the racecard for handicap races are the ratings that were used to calculate the weight to be carried by each horse, whilst in non-handicaps races the rating shown is that of each runner at the time that the entries for the race were confirmed. Any subsequently published change to a rating, either up or down, is shown in brackets following the rating. Racing Post Standard Times is an independent assessment based on how long it should take a 90 rated horse to win on Good To Firm ground at York. Race tactics, rail movements, and wind direction are amongst the many factors to also affect the time for each specific race. Non-runner Ground - The Trainer states the ground is not suitable for this horse, the official going has changed since the time of declaration. Vet - The Trainer states the horse is subject to a Veterinary Certificate. Self Certificate - The trainer has advised the authorities that the horse is not able to race today.

You must be 18 or over to place a bet You may be asked to provide proof of your age when placing a bet If you cannot produce this your bet will not be accepted

Today’s Runners & Riders


A message from Mr Malih L Al Basti As the founding owner of Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2021 season at the magnificent York Racecourse on the Knavesmire.

It is great to be back approaching some form of normality here at York. And so it is with great pride that Al Basti Equiworld Dubai, can continue to support The Chairman, Committee and every member of the York racecourse team by putting our name to three Group 2 races in 2021: the Gr2 Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Middleton Stakes, the Gr2 Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Dante Stakes and the Gr2 Al Basti Equiworld, Dubai Gimcrack Stakes.

A RACECOURSE FOR ALL We want the racecourse to offer both a welcome and an enjoyable day to all our racegoers and in delivering that we recognise that some may need additional assistance from us.

The first thing to say, please just ask for help, if the team don’t have an instant answer, then they know someone who will. The team in the Racecourse Reception (behind the Ebor Stand) act as the link to the rest of the team, as needed. FAQS Is there disabled and blue badge parking? Yes, I hope you found it. All our car parks have designated spaces near their front row. Can I get help with getting to/from the car park, taxi rank or shuttle buses? Yes, there is a complimentary buggy service to all these points, ask at racecourse reception or next time you arrive just call 01904 620911. Thank you for your patience as the buggies can only transfer 4 people at a time and it’s a big site. Can I bring a wheelchair? Yes, if you need to; but we also offer complimentary hire, again from Racecourse Reception (see told you they were the hub). As we hope you’ll appreciate, there are only so many wheelchairs on site, if you need to reserve in advance then call 01904 620911. Can I bring somebody to help? Yes, we appreciate that will come in various forms, we hope our “carer comes free” scheme is a help, before your next visit check it out online at www.yorkracecourse.co.uk or just ask the team today. Are there wheelchair viewing platforms? Yes, in all stand side area and Stands easiest thing to do is to ask our Stewards, though a map is available from, you guessed it, Racecourse Reception. For our music events , there is a dedicated viewing platform on the eastern side of Bustardthorpe lawn. Please use these in the spirit intended, with carers being prepared to step aside to allow space for those who need the view the most. What about toilets and are they part of the Radar scheme? Yes they are, all the permanent toilet blocks have a disabled capability, please ask for directions or check that map from you know where. Are their wheelchair height food and drink counters? Yes there are but not as many as we’d like, please ask a member of the team to assist you. Wheelchair height betting? Yes, there are some Tote counters set at a reduced height though a better plan might be to use the courier service that operates in areas such as the main Champagne Lawns; the Tote team themselves are always willing to help. There was one more thing? Please ask, we value your feedback so we can keep improving in this area.

Examples of viewing platforms both around the Parade Ring and trackside 23

1st Race 6.00 The John Wright Electrical Silk Series Lady Riders Stakes (Pro-Am Female Jockeys)

1m 1f Handicap 66-85 £11,200 3 Inside Rail

One Mile About One Furlong (1,700 metres) See page 60 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION A competitive handicap for 3yo horses, run over a mile and one furlong. Designed for close competition, the handicapper is the independent assessor who rates horses on past performance seeking to get them crossing the line together, by handing out differing weights. The best on past performance, will be the highest rated and so will carry more weight, Dejame Paso has that honour here. This race is special, being part of the Silk Series, an initiative that offers an opportunity to female riders nationwide. Interestingly, it allows fully fledged professionals (like Hayley Turner aboard the top weight), apprentices (such as Gemma Tutty on Freak Out) and amateurs (for example, Amie Waugh who partners Trevolli) to compete head to head with an allowance based on their past success. Perhaps seek guidance from the Press Selections Board by the winner’s enclosure.

2019’S RACE Winner: CHANCE Trainer: Simon Crisford Jockey: Megan Nicholls Age/Weight: 3-10-8 SP: 9/4F Runners: 10 Megan Nicholls took this for the second year in a row, this time thanks to the Simon Crisford-trained Chance, who skipped well clear of his rivals in the final two furlongs.

KNAVESMIRE TIP DEJAME PASO accounted for a decent field when scoring over this trip at Sandown last month and a 4lb rise for that success may underestimate Andrew Balding’s colt. Semper Augustus got off the mark at Newbury two starts ago and he is an obvious danger to the selection having hit the crossbar on his most recent outing. Just For Yuse remains unexposed and he merits consideration following a maiden victory a month ago.

FIRST RACE PRESENTATION & BEST TURNED OUT The trophy for this race will be presented to the winning owner after the race by a representative of John Wright Electrical. John Wright Electrical have generously given £50 to the racing groom responsible for the best turned out horse in this race.

HBLB PRIZE MONEY The Horserace Betting Levy Board continues to provide special funding at this time of crisis, both at York Racecourse and nationwide.

This is in addition to help with funding for major Capital Projects. Everyone at York is grateful for their support.

The Silk Series is back on British Racecourses once again in 2021, a series of races run over the country exclusively for female jockeys, supporting Cancer Research UK. Jockeys are awarded points for their finishing position in the Silk Series, with the overall winner receiving the Meriel Tufnell Trophy. The Series is open for amateur and professional jockeys alike, and this evening’s race at York is the eighth in the 2021 series, with another six to go including the Silk Series Final at Doncaster’s St Leger Meeting in September. Following a string of second places, jockey Jane Elliott currently sits atop the Leaderboard on 52 points, but a win at Great Yarmouth and a second place at Chepstow in the last fortnight have allowed apprentice Laura Pearson to close the gap to only four points. Yorkshire based Joanna Mason sits in joint third with Hollie Doyle on 32 points, whilst three time Silk Series Champion Megan Nicholls is on 24. Make sure to visit www.thesilkseries.co.uk or follow on social media to keep up with all of the latest results and see which jockey wins the Tufnell Trophy in September.

2nd Race 6.30 The IRE Incentive It Pays To Buy Irish Stakes

6f Handicap 61-80 £11,200 4+ Farside

Six Furlongs (1,200 metres) See page 60 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION Another competitive handicap, this time for 4yo+ horses, over six furlongs. “Offer a chance for everyone” is a good maxim for those planning races and in this contest the upper rating of 80 means that these are still quality horses but they won’t have their spotlight stolen by a real superstar. Pit your wits against the handicapper – as clues, look for C (has won at York) or D (has won over this distance) against the horse’s name, noting Excessable, as one to carry both.

KNAVESMIRE TIP In a competitive affair a chance is taken on CITRON MAJOR stepping back to his optimum trip. The Nigel Tinkler-trained six-year-old has failed to hit the ground running this campaign, but could get back to winning ways now the handicapper has given him a chance. Dark Shot has been hitting the crossbar lately and it would be no surprise if he was thereabouts, while Triggered arrives in good form and could mount a challenge.

AUGUST CALENDAR

With the first stage of entries received for the feature races at the

18 Wednesday Things to do:

Win the best race in the world

Once again crowned the best horse race on planet Earth after a stellar 2020 renewal won by Ghaiyyath, this year’s £1,000,000 Juddmonte International looks to be another absolute cracker with a plethora of Group 1 winners from across the generations featuring in the early entries. The Classic generation accounts for over half of the 32 entries and perhaps the strongest hand is held by the Irish master trainer Aidan O’Brien, whose leading lights include St Mark’s Basilica, who lowered the colours of Mishriff and Addeybb in a stunning performance in the Eclipse - his fourth Group 1 win in a row after taking the Dewhurst at two, then the French Guineas and the Prix Du Jockey Club on his first two runs aged three. If he lines up, he’ll surely be a hot favourite, but stablemates Snowfall, Santa Barbara, Mother Earth, Bolshoi Ballet and even Love, who competes in this weekend’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, could have something to say about that. John and Thady Gosden, successful in the past with the great Roaring Lion, also have plenty of strong chances in the race, with Mishriff, Lord North and Queen Anne winner, Palace Pier, all holding entries. With the likes of William Haggas’ exciting Mohaafeth, Jim Bolger’s Mac Swiney, David Menuisier’s Wonderful Tonight and William Muir and Chris Grassick’s Pyledriver all holding entries, this year’s renewal of the Juddmonte International could be another one for the ages and looks sure to make a bold bid to retain its title as Longines World’s Best Race.

Become fifteenth colt to win Sky Bet Great Voltigeur and Cazoo St Leger Fourteen colts have done the double and this year’s list of entries provides plenty of hope that 2021 could see number fifteen. Aidan O’Brien has a particularly strong list of entries once again, including High Definition, third in this year’s Group 2 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Dante and Wordsworth, placed in the Group 2 Queen’s Vase, the Group 1 Irish Derby and the Group 1 Grand Prix de Paris. The William Haggas-trained Alenquer is a fascinating entrant after two Group race victories this season and a third behind Wordsworth and Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Dante winner Hurricane Lane, who has gone on to be third in the Cazoo Derby and win the Irish Derby as well as the aforementioned Grand Prix de Paris. Lone Eagle, trained by Martyn Meade, runs in this weekend’s King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and looks a strong-staying type perfect for this. It’s a wide open contest for sure!

19 Thursday Things to do:

Regain Group One Darley Yorkshire Oaks

If Aidan O’Brien’s brilliant Love is to come to York for the Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival, it may yet be to try to regain her Darley Yorkshire Oaks crown instead of running in the Juddmonte International. She’ll be a warm order, but the entry list reveals a field full of potent threats. Not least stablemate Snowfall, who has been nothing short of sensational in her three starts at the age of three, including a Group 3 Tattersalls Musidora victory to start her season before both the English and Irish Oaks fell her way. Breeders’ Cup winner, Tarnawa, could also turn up for Dermot Weld, as could the aforementioned Wonderful Tonight, so this has the potential to be one of the best races of the week!

Translate Royal Ascot form into victory in the Sky Bet Lowther Stakes

36

Group 3 Albany Stakes winner and also the winner of the Group 2 Duchess of Cambridge Stakes, Sandrine, should be a big player here for the Andrew Balding team and may have the beating of her English-trained rivals. However, the Irish challenge could be very strong indeed, with Joseph O’Brien’s impressive Curragh Group 2 winner, Velocidad, as well as father Aidan’s battalion and Ger Lyons’ Sacred Bridge all genuine threats.


Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival, we mark your calendar.

20 Friday Things to do:

Be the fastest horse of the week

We will see plenty of the fastest horses on the planet here come August for the Coolmore Wootton Bassett Nunthorpe - Battaash was kept in training and should be back in 2021 to again defend his crown after doing so successfully last year. He will, though, have to face a serious challenge from both these shores and abroad on his hat-trick bid as the Wesley Ward-trained blazer, Golden Pal, may well come over to win the race for his new connections. York favourites, Winter Power and Art Power, provide the ammunition for Tim Easterby’s Great Habton yard. While the Kevin Ryan-trained Glass Slippers, now a triple Group 1 winner over three nations (France, Ireland and America - including an Abbaye victory and a win at the Breeders’ Cup) will be looking to open her top-level account here in England. Blink and you’ll miss it!

Follow in the hooves of greats like Mill Reef or Rock of Gibraltar

A step towards joining these legends awaits the champion in the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Gimcrack Stakes. A big cohort of Group winners already hold entries in this historic contest, including the Andrew Balding-trained Berkshire Shadow, who took Group 2 Coventry Stakes glory at Royal Ascot, and the Richard Fahey-trained Perfect Power who was a Group 2 Norfolk Stakes winner in the same week. Again, the potential Irish challenge is a strong one though, with Group 3 winner Beauty Inspire representing Ger Lyons and Castle Star, a close second in the Group 2 Railway Stakes at the end of June, potentially taking his place in the lineup for Fozzy Stack. Richard Hannon’s Group 2 July Stakes winner, Lusail, also holds an entry here and could further bolster an already stacked field.

21 Saturday Things to do:

Earn a place in the Folklore of the Knavesmire

That is the honour that awaits the victor of one of the toughest flat handicaps in the world and one of the richest in Europe, the £500,000 Sky Bet Ebor. The beauty of a handicap is that you can make a case for all twenty-two who finally make the stalls, never mind the 92 on the full entry list. So which to mention; Last year’s winner, the Roger Varian-trained Fujaira Prince, may well be back again for another go from a 6lb higher mark and could make a bold bid to become the first horse since Flint Jack nearly a century ago, to win the race twice. Anthony Mullins’ Princess Zoe is a fascinating entry after her Group 1 triumph in the Prix Du Cadran, while the O’Briens (Aidan, Joseph and Donnacha) all have darts to throw in the shape of Passion, Master Of Reality and Emperor Of The Sun respectively. Perhaps, though it will be Ilaraab who shows that the Sky Bet Race to the Ebor is just that after taking the Sky Bet Jorvik in ready style in May and William Haggas’ charge surely holds huge claims back at this venue in August. Hopefully the above sets the scene for a twenty eight race festival where £70,000 is the lowest prize fund and the richest maiden race in the land, the British Stallion Studs EBF Convivial Maiden Stakes, or the richest nursery handicap in the Sky Bet Stakes, add to the cocktail of high fashion and high class sport.

Distance: Race Type: Prize Money: Age: Stalls:

5f Novice £14,000 2 Farside

Five Furlongs (1,000 metres)

See page 60 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION

Time to concentrate, easy bit first, race three is limited to two-year-old horses, so in their first season racing. When they were bought, at a recognised auction, the market was deemed as an assessment of their quality and so potential, the most expensive being categorised as Band A, the next group as Band B and so on. If you must know, the Band As went for above £50,000 descending in roughly £20,OOO bands thereafter. Any horse in Band A racing in opposition to a Band B horse must start by carrying two pounds in extra weight; if a Band C is in the same race, then the Band B horse carries two pounds more than the Band C contestant, (see the 2lb difference between Silky Wilde and Piranheer), meaning the Band A horse will be carrying four pounds (2+2) more than their Band C rival. Stay with me, the principle from wider racing that winning would add weight for next time is applied by a previous winner having to carry a 6lb penalty (see Lucy Lulu who starts as a lower Band horse but jumps up the weights). Which reminds me, the same principles apply for the fillies like her, only they start with a lower weight so they can better compete against the boys. If this all sounds a bit complicated then a proven method in these races is your choice of “P”s, pedigree or pin.

KNAVESMIRE TIP Silken Petals has plenty of experience and merits respect in this field. However, a chance is taken on SILKY WILKIE, who created a good impression for Karl Burke when finishing second on debut at York earlier this month and gets the vote to lose the maiden tag here. Lucy Lulu can make her presence felt back on faster ground, but does have a penalty to concede to these rivals.

CARING FOR THE HORSES AT YORK RACECOURSE

Looking after the horses is a priority at York and every raceday there is a team of experienced equine vets on constant call. Much of their work is done before racing actually starts, being on hand to check horses over and reassure connections. As part of the Northern End Development the vets have their own office, a large treatment box and a dedicated “stock box” to help them assess and treat the stars of our show. If there is an incident during a race, prompt attention to horse and rider is provided by the modern ambulances, you will see them parked by the track, ready for a rapid response. Like most courses York will often use green screens during an incident, these offer privacy to those involved and their presence does not necessarily signify bad news. Keeping cool is important to a racehorse so you might see them using the horse showers in the new wash down area or the cold water provided in the parade ring and at every start. If you spot a mist cloud behind the saddling boxes that means the horses are benefiting from the cooling power of the special water-misting fans. If a horse loses a shoe or ‘spreads a plate’, then there is a farrier at every start, as well as in their dedicated box by the pre parade ring, to put it right and let the racing commence. Remember a farrier shoes horses, a blacksmith makes gates or the impressive fretwork on the front of the future Weighing Room. As you enjoy your meeting, you can rest assured the horses are being well cared for by the racecourse team and their own dedicated stable staff. 41

The British Stallion Studs EBF Lyric Fillies’ Stakes (Listed Race)

1m 2f Listed £52,000 3+ f&m Inside Rail

One Mile About Two Furlongs (2,000 metres) See page 60 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION

Our fourth race is a part of the Pattern pyramid which denotes the best contests, Listed (like this one), Group 3, Group 2 and Group 1. This race is open to 3yo+ fillies and mares and is over a mile and a quarter. All are registered with the European Breeders’ Fund. This means that their sire (father) is based and registered in Europe with the EBF, which is a scheme to encourage the best in bloodstock. As racing recognises that younger horses, aged three, are likely to be at a different stage of development, notice how Sea Empress is amongst the quartet to benefit by starting with a lower weight. Looking for help? Then follow the racecourse tipster, who has marked his selections with a red bi plane.

LAST YEAR’S RACE Winner: FRANCONIA Trainer: John Gosden Jockey: Frankie Dettori Age/Weight: 3-8-12 SP: 1/3F Runners: 7 Franconia justified very short odds in last year’s renewal, but she certainly had to work for it under Frankie Dettori, fighting off the challenge of Gold Wand in the final furlong.

THE TALE OF THE CLOCK Race Average Time: 2m 10.44s Racing Post Standard Time: 2m 6.70s Course record: 2m 5.29s by Sea The Stars (18-Aug-09) All times are based where possible on the corresponding race over the last seven years

KNAVESMIRE TIP She may not have run since a narrow defeat in the Group One Prix de L’Opera last October but the exciting ALPINE STAR is expected to take all the beating on her return here, just like she did when scoring so emphatically in the Group One Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot last year. Her form is head and shoulders above anything else, but Fooraat is of interest stepping up in trip, while Sea Empress is entitled to another chance at this level having disappointed at Newcastle.

KNAVESMIRE TIP A fiercely competitive handicap, in which narrow preference is for the top-rated SCOTTISH SUMMIT. Recent placed efforts at both Ripon and Doncaster show him to be arriving at the top of his game and he will have no trouble carrying 9-7 this evening (has won under 9-11 in the past). Redarna edged out a smart David O’Meara inmate at Ayr last time and he must enter calculations, while cutting back from 1m2f should help Naval Commander. The unexposed Kettle Hill is one of many more with claims.

6th Race 8.30 The Sky Bet Go-Racing-In-Yorkshire Summer Festival Stakes

5f 89y Handicap 66-85 £11,200 3 Farside

Five Furlongs About 89 Yards (1,000 metres)

See page 60 for conditions of this race.

RACE DESCRIPTION We finish the equine entertainment with another puzzle to solve; a final handicap, this time for 3yo horses only, rated 66-85 and run over five and a half furlongs. The shorter distance usually makes for a tight finish. If an apprentice jockey partners a horse, they can claim a reduction in weight to balance their relative lack of experience, see how High Security benefits by Faye McManoman claiming 3lb. If you are successful then you can bask in the glory of picking the last York winner until at least 2.07pm tomorrow.

2019’S RACE Winner: QUE AMORO Trainer: Michael Dods Jockey: Paul Mulrennan Age/Weight: 3-9-2 Runners: 6 SP: 8/1 In perhaps the most impressive performance of the day, Que Amoro destroyed her challengers, bolting up by seven lengths and proving a filly to follow.

KNAVESMIRE TIP The lightly-raced SIR TITUS arrives here having won all three of his starts in 2021 and a 3lb rise for the most recent of those victories may not be enough to stop him from taking this contest as well. International Girl made the frame in a competitive contest over C&D last time and she should be in the mix once again, while Radrizzani completes the shortlist.
