King George Stakes

King George Stakes Odds

The King George Stakes will be the 2nd race on the card of Day 3 of Glorious Goodwood and should be an exciting renewal as always with some top class sprinters set to take their places here. Australian sprinting star Ortensia romped to victory in 2012 while Moviesta won in 2013 and we are expecting another top class field this year.

Some top class sprinters are taking their chance in this one today including Moviesta who won the race 12 months ago and will be aiming repeat that success once again.

King George Stakes 2009 Result

Kingsgate Native left his charge until late but when Ryan Moore kicked him on he simply stormed clear of the field to win by a comfortable margin. Total Gallery was along way second with Inxile just nipping 3rd place.
