Trainer Michael Stoute, teaming with jockey Frankie Dettori, crashed the Chad Brown-Aidan O'Brien party in the Filly & Mare Turf. Queen's Trust (8-to-1) upstaged the foursome saddled up by turf specialists Brown, who sent off the favored Lady Eli as well as Sea Calisi, and O'Brien, who had the second pari-mutuals pick Seventh Heaven plus Pretty Perfect.
Part II of this story line arrives four races later with the Turf. Brown's duo is the favored Flintshire (5-to-2) and Money Multiplier (20-to-1). O'Brien trains Found and Highland Reel, the co-second choices in the morning line at 3-to-1.
Aiming to one-up them again is Stoute and Dettori with Ulysses (12-to-1). Stoute, who claimed his seventh Cup victory today, had expressed more enthusiasm for Queen's Trust prospects than for Ulysses'. So, history might not repeat.
