Glorious Goodwood 2015: Winners, Finishing Results and Prize Money Payouts

Owner Sheikh Joaan pocketed a £170,000 prize pot on Tuesday as Toormore triumphed in the Queen’s Lennox Stakes to give his stable a victorious start at Glorious Goodwood 2015.

Frankie Dettori started his Goodwood campaign in winning fashion, too, riding Galileo Gold to first place in the Qatar Vintage Stakes on the opening day of the festival.

It was the Toormore’s first appearance for Godolphin since being purchased from Middleham Park Racing earlier this month, with Racing UK providing footage of his win as a 9-4 joint-favourite:

Here are the full results from Day 1 of the festival, along with recap and highlights of Tuesday’s biggest moments:

Toormore Holds Off Late Competition in Lennox Stakes

If the field had been allowed to have its way, Toormore would have fallen victim to a last-gasp lunge for the Goodwood finish, but the recently transferred colt held up his lead to clinch a very deserved win on Tuesday.

James Doyle gave a fine ride to see the four-year-old to his first Grade 1 win since September 2013, having endured a run of seven successive races without claiming first place since then.

Seven furlongs proved to be a simple task Richard Hannon’s horse, who fended off competitions from Dutch Connection, Safety Check and Code Red to prevail in what was by no means an easy outing.

Trainer Hannon emphasised as much when speaking to Channel 4 Racing after his horse’s win, where he rightly hailed Toormore for “doing it the hard way:”

Prior to Tuesday’s result, Toormore had taken just over £177,000 in career winnings, per his official Racing Post profile, proving just what a landmark occasion this was for his career.

Hannon is sure to consider giving him a step up in terms of racing distance in the future, considering just how easy Toormore made it look as he held his own almost the entire way to emerge victorious.

 

Galileo Gold Living Up to His Name

The second race on Day 1 gave Dettori an early chance to prove his credentials at Goodwood, and he did just that in the Qatar Vintage Stakes, making his way from the back of the pack at two furlongs out before ravaging home.

Race favourite Birchwood found himself squeezed out of the pecking order early on, but whereas he found it difficult to emerge, Galileo Gold found his beat on the far side of the track to thunder past the rest.

Dettori was left impressed with his ride and lauded the quality of Galileo Gold, as well as giving credit to owner Joaan and his Goodwood investment, per Sporting Life:

It was a strong wind and everyone was trying to get cover. They are two-year-olds, so they’re bound to run around a bit in the straight, but he showed a good attitude and I was very impressed. I got a good run through on the inside, he was very brave and quickened up very well.

It’s the first runner of the meeting for us (Al Shaqab Racing), we’ve started off with a winner and my boss (Sheikh Joaan) is here today. He’s put a lot of money in this week and it’s nice for him to get a bit of reward back.

Ibn Malik finished three-quarters of a length behind the victor and Hannon-trained Palawan managed to rescue a third-place finish after getting stuck to the rail.

Even at 44 years of age, Dettori continues to prove a force to contend among the elite of the racing scene and as Channel 4 Racing confirmed, is the most successful jockey currently at Glorious Goodwood:

The Italian was hit with bad news earlier this week as it was announced his whip ban would prevent him competing in next month’s Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup at Ascot, per Graham Green of the Racing Post.

That being said, the £113,000 payout earned for his team in Tuesday’s performance will serve as a substantial boost, with the rider hoping to advance his superb Goodwood record after a fine start.
