Art Connoisseur keeps top Royal Ascot prize at home

11:28 am on 21 June 2009

Art Connoisseur, trained in England by Michael Bell, fought off a powerful foreign challenge to win the Golden Jubilee Stakes, the Group One highlight of the final day of Royal Ascot.

Ridden by Tom Queally, the 20-1 chance sprinted through on the inside in the last 150 metres and held off US raider Cannonball (11-1) by a neck.
