Frankel's Hurricane Lane Wins the Irish Derby

Hurricane Lane (right) |


It was a Derby double for Frankel (GB) on Saturday as Godolphin's Hurricane Lane (Ire) emulated his stablemate Adayar (Ire) in The Curragh's G1 Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby. Leaving it late under William Buick, the May 13 G2 Dante S. winner and June 5 G1 Epsom Derby third stayed on powerfully from behind as Frankie Dettori cut loose on the fellow British-trained Lone Eagle (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in early straight and overwhelmed that rival in the final yards for a neck success as the 4-1 second favourite. There were seven lengths back to Wordsworth (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in third, with the 9-4 favourite High Definition (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) one of the first beaten and finishing in rear. After a stewards' inquiry into interference caused by the winner to those in behind as he made his move forward, the result was left to stand.
