2017 Dante Festival Season Opener

17th May 2017
17th May marked the opening day of flat racing at York. Persistent rain fell for much of the day but the crowd were treated to some high quality racing. Tasleet owned by Hamdan Al Maktoum trained by William Haggas and ridden by Jim Crowley was a convincing winner of the Duke of York Clipper Logistics Stakes.

Frankie Dettori and John Gosden then made it a hat trick of wins in The Tattersalls Musidora Stakes with a strong performance on Shutter Speed. To see pictures from these races and all the action from the day click here..
