Frankie said:“Pat [Smullen, on Free Eagle] came to me then I gave him a couple of cracks and I got the measure of him and I thought, right, come on, let’s go home. All of a sudden, he just took a right turn. He must have seen something.”

Gosden said: “You don’t notice it on the screen, but he’s run across the shadow of the grandstand and then straightened up. A photographer who was down there has pointed out to me what happened."

MY FAVOURITE HORSE
Racing Post
Philip Mitchell on Running Stag
“We got within hundredth of a second of Secretariat’s record”
“HE TOOK me to places you only read about in National Geographic - we went to America lots of times, Dubai and Hong Kong – and he was owned by the most lovely man in Richard Cohen.
“All Richard wanted was fun out of racing  and when we bought Running Stag privately from Maurice Ziber, I said  “This horse will give you fun alright  - he could take us places and he will pay his way” .
 
“I always had a passion for American racing and I’d already been there a few times with horses like Sylvan Express, My Pal Popeye and Keen Edge, so I knew what sort of a horse you needed. Saratoga stands out for me with Running Stag because  he’s still the only British-trained winner there but probably the highlight was really the Brooklyn Handicap, when he got to within hundredths of a second  of Secretariat’s track record. He won in a hack canter too- I still can’t believe how easily he won.

 
“He should  have won the Mass ‘ Cap twice but the first time I told Shane Sellers not to take the stick out of his left hand because he could lug a bit, but, he pulled the stick through five strides from the wire and Stag changed his legs and got beat a nose.”
