    Famed jockey Dettori ecstatic as Soul Sibling claims victory at the Oaks

    Mystery and Discontinuity in Sport News: Soul Sister Wins Betfred Oaks

    Soul Sister triumphed at Epsom in what turned out to be an unexpected win at the Betfred Oaks. John and Thady Gosden’s filly was not among the frontrunners initially, but as the race progressed, she picked up speed until she took over during the home stretch.

    A Surprising Victory

    The fact that Soul Sister emerged victorious came as a surprise to many considering Aidan O’Brien’s Savethelastdance (the 5-6 favourite) led for much of this year’s event. Savethelastdance eventually lost steam towards the end, allowing for Soul Sister to take advantage of her position on the field.

    Lingering Questions Answered?

    There were some mixed fortunes for those following John and Thady Gosden’s yard. One notable disappointment was Running Lion who did not even start after breaking out of its stalls early on in the race; unseating jockey Oisin Murphy soon after.

    Gosden Senior commented about Soul Sister’s performance: “When I was looking at her pedigree I like to see Darshaan under third dam so that meant there was a chance she’d stay… It was a strongly-run race and she’s beaten a couple of nice fillies.”

    The Irish Oaks Beckons?

    Rumours have already started circulating about whether or not this victory will lead Soul Sister into participating in The Irish Oaks next. While nothing is confirmed yet, it would certainly seem plausible considering how well she performed here today!

    Celebration Time!

    Jubilation filled Epsom Downs Racecourse when Frankie Dettori, who earlier won the Coronation Cup, rode Soul Sister to victory. “That means a lot – seven Oaks winners… Lady Bamford is a big supporter of mine and in my last year that is my second Classic winner – unbelievable,” Dettori exclaimed after completing his ride.

    Soul Sister’s unexpected win made for an exciting day at the Betfred Oaks. With her pedigree and recent success, there might be even more surprises ahead in future races!
