Delegator romps home at Goodwood

29 August 2009
The Celebration Mile at Goodwood has been won by hot favourite Delegator. The 4/6 winner ridden by Frankie Dettori was followed home by Zacinto at 5/2 and Ordnance Row at 33/1.

The Godolphin horse only needed to raise its game in the final furlongs of the 1m Class 1 contest, steeping up the pace to surge past the other contenders.

Delegator, second to Sea The Stars and Mastercraftsman recently, has certainly found a fan in Dettori.

"I was actually quite taken with the way he picked up," said Dettori. "I haven't ridden a horse like this for a while."
