Horse racing results: jockey Ryan Moore claims record ninth winner at Royal Ascot

Aloft ridden by Ryan Moore Horse racing

Jockey Ryan Moore rode a record ninth winner of this year's Royal Ascot meeting on Friday on board Aloft in the Queen's Vase.

The Aidan O'Brien-trained 3-year-old was the 5-2 favorite and beat Tommy Docc by half a length.

''It was a very messy race, I was slowly away and in a bad position and having to pick my way, he was a bit rusty all the way round,'' Moore said. ''He's a fair horse this fellow. He's open to all sorts of improvement, it's his first run of the year and you wouldn't know where he could end up.

''I'm very lucky, I get to ride the best horses and that makes a big difference.''

At the prestigious 304-year-old meeting west of London, Lester Piggott was the first jockey in recorded history to claim eight Royal Ascot winners in 1965. He repeated the feat a decade a later and Pat Eddery matched that total in 1989.

''Ryan Moore is a brilliant jockey,'' Piggott said. ''To win nine races during any week is a fantastic achievement, but to do it at Royal Ascot where the competition is so tough is extremely impressive."
