Deauville: Belmont Derby Winner

Deauville came in with Grade One triumph in the Belmont Derby. Jockey Jamie Spencer was the winning Jockey to claim another title under his belt.


Trained by Aidan O’Brien Deauville kept in pace with leader ‘Toughest Ombre’ but on the final un Spencer kicked it into gear to bring in the winner. There was a moment of doubt when Highland Sky challenged late on but Spencer managed to hang on and get Deauville over the line just in time.


One of the biggest race wins of Spencer’s career, the prize money was £455,782 which comes in behind only to past career wins:


  1. Dubai Duty Free (Group 1) 25th March 2006 - £1,744,186

  2. Singapore Airlines International Cup (Singapore Group 1) 12th May 2001 - £694,981


What a place to do it too, Belmont Park is one of the oldest racecourses in history and first opened on the 4th May 1905 - 111 years ago! The location is one of a kind and has the capacity to hold 100,000 racegoers.


What next for Deauville then? Well, the next race will be the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes (British Champions Series) (Group 1) (Class 1) (3yo+) at Ascot on the 23rd July. Competing with 39 runners we expect it to be an epic affair and look forward to the race!
