Hertford Dancer is a thrilling third in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot

22nd June, 2017

Hertford Dancer stepped forward from her brilliant Lingfield Oaks Trial win to finish a close third in The Ribblesdale Stakes (Gr 2) on day three of Royal Ascot. She looked to have the race won with a furlong to run having kicked clear of the field under Jim Crowley, but it was not to be as Coronet and Mori swept past in the dying strides to claim first and second, with Hertford Dancer a length and a quarter back in third. This brave, genuine filly is a homebred of Highclere Stud and leased to members of 5 Hertford Street, many of whom were at Ascot to join in the excitement. She was supplemented for this race following her triumph at Lingfield and by finishing third she has earned back that fee and more, which is a fantastic result for all involved.
