I am so incredibly proud of this legend of a horse for winning his 4th Derby. He is a horse of a lifetime and I am so honoured to be his partner. Thank you to my incredible team for their support and patience over the last year. Thank you to Henning Pretorius of Capital Stud for his unwavering support, to Mark White Nissan for their continued enthusiastic support; and of course my long time coach Gonda Betrix for holding my hand through every Derby win! Graham Winn you biscuit and Lisa Williams well done, I certainly felt the pressure, brilliant riding from the both of you and what a hot jump off that was.
