TODAY’S BIG TALKING POINT
“Which leading lady will earn top billing?
“WHY all the fuss about the two Hayleys, Ms Turner and Ms Moore? True, it was good to see one become the first women to ride an outright Group 1 winner in Britain and the other win the right to become the first to commentate on a race. But racing, fusty, fuddy –duddy old racing has long been ahead of the emancipation curve. Lengthy is the list of roles in which females have proved themselves well up to the task for so long now nobody comments on their gender any more. Females provide the box- office pull on ladies’ day at York today. The guessing game for next year’s Classics is underway and the 11 youngsters who go to post in the Jaguar Cars Lowther Stakes include Godolphin’s GAMILATI, as short as 12-1 for the Qipco 1,000 Guineas after her win in the Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket.”
