Kempton: Wednesday

Madame Tantzy provided one of the biggest shocks of the year on Wednesday night and showed a thundering outburst of late speed to score at odds 80-1 in British Stallion Studs EBF Hyde Stakes.

The five-year-old was the lowest rated of the ten runners in the Listed function with an official rating of 81, and she had 22 lbs to find with top-rated Stormy Antarctic. To advance his challenge, jockey Georgie Dobie was unable to claim his 3lb allowance.

But that seemed to make little difference when the Eve Johnson Houghton-trained runner came from behind the home directly to charge up between the runners and hold Misty Gray back by one and a half lengths.


7.15 Kempton: Full result and race repetition


Caspian Queen, who were sent off 40-1, finished in third place, meaning the Tote Exacta paid the full £ 547.40 for a £ 1 bet.

Johnson Houghton, who famously pitched at Group 1 level with Madame Tantzy’s brother Accidental Agent for the same compounds, said: “It was huge. We wanted to get a black type considering the pedigree, so this was massive.

“She’s improved all year, but I really think it’s helped to put the lights on. I thought we could get a place, I did not see us win like that. She’s really done well – I’m so happy for her . “

‘She had every right to be here’

The coach added: “Georgia gave her a great ride, she weighs 3 kg but she could not claim it. She was relaxed and let the filly do her thing.”

The victory is the biggest in the budding career of jockey Dobie, who said: “She was a great prize today, but she had every right to be here – she had ridden well in some hot races. It was probably a little soft for her the last today she has done it nicely and has won it quite nicely.

“It’s great that they set me up as I’m still a 3kg claimant, they did not need that but I’m totally excited.”
