The Irish jockey Richard Hughes is celebrating a remarkable 7 winners from eight races at Windsor in England.

39 year old Hughes won the first five races on the card, slipped up with a third placing in race 6, then won the last two.

Three of his seven winners were trained by his father-in-law.

His feat sparked memories of the great Italian jockey Frankie Dettori who won all seven races at an Ascot meeting in 1996, costing bookmakers millions of pounds.
