Royal Ascot: Auguste Rodin triumphs in Prince of Wales’s Stakes as Aidan O’Brien and Ryan Moore reach milestones | Racing News

Auguste Rodin produced a determined performance under Ryan Moore to win the feature Prince Of Wales’s Stakes on the second day at Royal Ascot.

The Aidan O’Brien-trained 13/8 favourite, who was claiming his sixth Group One success, ran on gamely against the far rail in the 1m 2f contest to repel the challenge of French duo Zarakem (33/1) and Horizon Dore (7/1).

Following his earlier win on Illinois, the victory moved Moore on to the 81-winner mark at Royal Ascot – putting him level with Frankie Dettori in second place behind Lester Piggott (116) on the all-time list – while O’Brien was training the 400th Group/Grade One winner of his career.

Inspiral was slow out of the stalls and was unable to strike a blow after racing at the rear for much of the race.
