Royal Ascot 2018 Poet’s World Beats Cracksman

Sir Michael Stoute trained Poet’s Word has beaten the favoured Cracksman in the G1 Prince of Wales’s Stakes bringing up 76 triumphs at Royal Ascot for the trainer.

Poet’s Word was triumphing for Stoute 41 years after the trainer’s first Royal Ascot win.

It gave Sir Michael Stoute, who had been level on 75 wins with the late Sir Henry Cecil, the record at Royal Ascot.

“It’s a relief because we were stuck on it last year,” said the 72-year-old trainer.

Stoute paid tribute to his old friend and rival Cecil.

“Henry did most of his training when it was a four-day meeting, so I’ve had an advantage,” said Stoute.

“No-one respected him greater than I did as a trainer.”
