Camelot Etched In Derby legend
- Horseracing – Epsom Derby
Aidan O’Brien’s 2000Guineashero was sent off the 8-13 favourite to complete the Classic double, and the trainer’s son, Joseph, 19, was happy to sit towards the rear for much of the mile-and-a-half journey.
He began to make headway on the outside of the field rounding the home turn, but for a moment it appeared his stablemate Astrology had stolen a march on his rivals.
However, Camelot mowed him down heading towards the final furlong and finished strongly to secure a five-length success.
The David Lanigan-trained Main Sequence narrowly denied O’Brien a one-two, getting up on the line to edge out Astrology.
