Westover reunites with Rob Hornby

Rob Hornby? Colin Keane? The suspense ended on Sunday morning. Westover (Frankel), winner of the Derby of Ireland (Gr1), will eventually be linked with the first named. Rob Hornby flew the Judmonte representative in four of his seven outings, important During the Classic Trial (Gr3) at Sandown, while finishing an unfortunate third in the Epsom Derby (Gr1). Westover was ridden by Colin Keane in the Irish Derby and he also finished fifth in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes (Gr1).

Rob Hornby told the British press: “This is wonderful news and I am very excited. I was in touch with him even before the first win at Sandown, I know him well and that’s an asset. He has been doing well since the break after Ascot. He gives his all in the race, which is what you want. He gave a lot and definitely needs some time to get back to his best. He is in great shape and in great shape. » Regarding Colin Keane’s selection in the Irish Derby and King George, the jockey added: “I realized that I had been kicked out for being the top jockey three times in Ireland and having run for Juddmonte before, so it didn’t really come out of nowhere. Colin did an amazing job on D-Day [dans l’Irish Derby, ndlr] The colt was very impressive. Ascot didn’t go as planned and I don’t think he liked this particular 2,400m course and he was alone in the first 500m in a sparse space. »
