DUBAI DUTY FREE SHERGAR CUP - ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW





THE DUBAI DUTY FREE SHERGAR CUP

• The Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup is the world’s premier international jockeys’ team competition. Three world-class riders will represent each of Great Britain (GBR), Ireland (IRE), Europe (EUR) and the Rest of the World (ROW).

• The six races are limited to 10 runners with either two or three horses racing for each team (this will balance itself out over the course of the afternoon), and points are awarded on a 15, 10, 7, 5, 3 basis to the first five horses home (non runners score 4 points). Subject to full fields, each jockey has five rides and the team with the highest total after the sixth race lifts the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup.


• All six races are handicaps and all will be run with identical prize money - £30,000 per race.

• Owners have a fantastic opportunity on Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup Day - there are no entry fees for the races, there is prize money down to last place (with reserves that miss out on a run paid £500 travel money) and there is complimentary hospitality throughout the day.


• Dubai Duty Free has been associated with the Shergar Cup since its inception, initially as team sponsor of the Rest of the World team and as a race sponsor. In 2006, the company became title sponsor of the whole event for the first time.


• Captain for the GBR Team is Hayley Turner, riding in her fourth Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup and the most successful female rider Britain has ever produced. She will be joined by Ascot-born Jim Crowley, who is enjoying a fantastic season as stable jockey to Ralph Beckett and Alan Munro, who will forever be associated with the great Generous, winner of the Derby and King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes in 1991.


• Captain for the IRE Team is Richard Hughes, fresh from a record-breaking nine winners at Glorious Goodwood last week and twice winner of the Silver Saddle at the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup. Hughes will ride alongside Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup debutants Pat Smullen, Ireland’s five-time champion jockey and successful in the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot this season aboard Rite Of Passage, and Fran Berry, who was elevated to number one jockey to John Oxx and the Aga Khan in Ireland following the retirement of Mick Kinane. Smullen and Berry are currently the top two riders in this season’s Irish jockeys’ championship.


• Captain for the EUR Team is Olivier Peslier, who will be making a speedy return to Ascot following his imperious victory aboard Harbinger in the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes on July 24. He will be joined by Italian Umberto Rispoli, the 2009 champion jockey who smashed Frankie Dettori’s father’s long-standing record for most in winners in an Italian season, and French-based Belgian-born superstar Christophe Soumillon.


• Captain for the ROW Team is Anton Marcus. The South African champion captured the US$5 million Dubai Duty Free aboard Jay Peg in 2008. His teammates are Luke Nolen from Australia, recently crowned champion in Victoria, and Yasunari Iwata from Japan who is the only Japanese jockey to have won the Emirates Melbourne Cup.


• The Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup is being run for the 10th time at Ascot. The first running took place in 2000 when it was staged as an owners’ competition. It became a jockeys’ competition in 2001 and has gone from strength to strength ever since, attracting bumper crowds in each of the last six years it has been run (2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 – it was not staged in 2005 when the racecourse was being redeveloped).

• The jockeys competing in the four-team Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup will wear full team colours for the first time at this year’s renewal on Saturday, August 7. This is a one-year trial agreed with the Racehorse Owners Association. Please see page 4 for further information.


• The three jockeys riding for the Great Britain team will wear red and white colours, the jockeys representing Ireland will wear green and white, the jockeys riding for Europe will wear blue and white and the Rest of the World team will wear black and white. Distinguishing caps and sleeves (checks, hoops and stars) will allow commentators, racegoers and TV viewers to differentiate between the jockeys riding within each team. Please see page 4 for further information.


• Back by popular demand, a two-hour live 1980s concert will take place in the old paddock after racing. The line-up consists of Boy George, Johnny Hates Jazz, Cutting Crew, The Christians, Captain Sensible, Belinda Carlisle and Midge Ure.


JOCKEYS TO WEAR TEAM COLOURS IN THE DUBAI DUTY FREE SHERGAR CUP

The jockeys competing in this year’s Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup will wear team colours for the first time.


The Racehorse Owners Association (ROA) and Ascot Racecourse, both mindful of the many and varied current industry initiatives aimed at broadening the appeal of the sport, have agreed to this one-year trial in the belief that this will add to the sense of competition and to the spectacle.

The three jockeys riding for the Great Britain team will wear red and white colours, the jockeys representing Ireland will wear green and white, the jockeys riding for Europe will wear blue and white and the Rest of the World team will wear black and white.

Distinguishing caps and sleeves (checks, hoops and stars) will allow commentators, racegoers and TV viewers to differentiate between the jockeys riding within each team.


Ascot’s Head of Communications, Nick Smith, said: “We are very grateful to the ROA for giving us the go-ahead for this trial.


“Seeing their horses in their own colours is obviously important to owners so the ROA is to be applauded for its flexibility and foresight in lending its weight to the initiative, which is aimed at enabling racegoers to follow more easily this unique team competition.”

Michael Harris, Chief Executive of the Racehorse Owners’ Association, commented: “Ascot has always made this one-off day rewarding for owners, with no entry fees, decent prize money for races of their grades paid down to last place, number cloth sponsorship for every runner and complimentary hospitality throughout the day. This is a one off event and I hope that owners really get behind the trial.”

Nick Attenborough, PR Director for Racing For Change, added: ‘We’re delighted that team silks have been agreed for the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup. Ascot has done a great job of building this day into a major event which attracts many novice racegoers. This latest initiative will further enhance it.”

Please see below an illustration of the three sets of colours to be worn by the GB team. The other teams will wear identical silks in their team colours – green & white (Ireland), blue & white (Europe) and black & white (Rest of the World).

FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT

This year’s Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup will feature more free family entertainment than ever before, with children particularly well catered for. As well as the jockey autograph signing and concert, there are lots of others activities taking place off the track.

The Plaza Lawns will feature an exciting range of fairground rides and attractions including climbing walls for different age groups, inflatable slides and a soft play area for young children. There will also be football skills and cheerleading workshops and a Glee Club tribute band will play on the bandstand between races. All activities are free of charge.


TEAM ANTHEMS AND CHEERLEADERS

For the second time at the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup, each of the four teams will have a team anthem. If a Great Britain-ridden horse wins a race, Kasbian’s ‘Fire’ will be played; if there’s an Irish-ridden winner, U2’s ‘Elevation’ will be played; if a European-ridden horse wins, ‘Fascination’ by Alphabeat will be played; and a winner for the Rest of the World team will be greeted by ‘I Gotta Feeling’ by The Black Eyed Peas.


Eight cheerleaders on the grandstand lawn will dance to the wining team anthem just after the finish of each race, while the winning horse will be greeted by a short section of the anthem as they return to the winner’s enclosure. The cheerleaders will also dance to different anthems when the horses reach the post prior to each race.


POST RACING CONCERT –
THE VERY BEST OF THE 1980S

Following a hugely successful post-racing concert for the past two years, racegoers will once again be treated to a two-hour set featuring “Here & Now” – the Very Best of the 1980s.


Boy George is one of the most of the most recognised faces of 1980s pop music. He fronted Culture Club, and enjoyed massive worldwide success with the singles Do You Really Want To Hurt Me and Karma Chameleon. Also a successful solo artist with Everything I Own going to number one in 1987, he went on to forge a highly-successful career as a nightclub DJ.


Johnny Hates Jazz were initially active between 1987 and 1992 and registered hits with Shattered Dreams (which also reached number two in the US), I Don’t Want To Be A Hero and Turn Back The Clock. The group reformed in 2009, with original vocalist Clark Datchler back in the line-up.


Cutting Crew will forever be associated with the worldwide smash hit (I Just) Died in Your Arms, one of the seminal power ballades of the 1980s. The single reached number four in the UK in 1986 and went on to top the charts in the US and Canada.


The Christians were a mainstay of the 1980s charts, with their eponymous debut LP reaching number two in 1987. They are remembered for hits such as Ideal World and Harvest For The World. They also appeared alongside Paul McCartney on the UK number one Ferry Across The Mersey, a charity record for the Hillsborough Disaster Fund.


Captain Sensible first rose to prominence as a member of 1970s punk band The Damned. In an unlikely twist, he hit the number one spot as a solo artist in 1982 with a novelty cover version of Happy Talk from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific.


Belinda Carlisle first enjoyed success as lead vocalist of The Go-Go's, who made history as the first all-female music group to write their own songs and play their own instruments to top the US Billboard charts. In the 1980s she went on to huge fame as a solo artist, with worldwide hits such as Heaven Is A Place On Earth, I Get Weak and Circle In The Sand.

Midge Ure rose to prominence as front man of Ultravox, among pioneers of electronic music who are best known for the chilling Vienna, which was voted single of the year at the 1981 BRIT Awards. He also enjoyed significant success as a solo artist, with If I Was reaching number one in 1985. Midge also co-wrote Do They Know It’s Christmas? alongside Bob Geldof, co-organised Live Aid and remains a member of the Band Aid Trust.




THE MANDARIN ORIENTAL – OFFICIAL DUBAI DUTY FREE SHERGAR CUP HOTEL

This year’s official Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup hotel, where the international jockeys will be staying, is The Mandarin Oriental.


Situated in the prime shopping and residential district of Knightsbridge bordering the capital’s finest royal park, the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park’s spectacular location combines with its impressive Victorian façade and classic English interiors to provide the quintessential London experience.


The hotel comprises: 198 luxurious rooms; two award-winning restaurants, Foliage and The Park, incorporating outside dining on The Park Terrace; the über-trendy Mandarin Bar; sublime holistic treatments at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental; a gymnasium featuring state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment; and six magnificent function rooms.

THE PRIZES

The Shergar Cup

At stake for the winning team is the magnificent Shergar Cup, which depicts the mighty 1981 Derby and King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner. It was graciously provided by His Highness The Aga Khan, who owned Shergar.


Points will be awarded to the first five horses to finish in each of the six Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup races as follows - winner: 15 points; second: 10 points; third: 7 points; fourth: 5 points; fifth: 3 points. If there is a non-runner which cannot be replaced by a reserve, 4 points will be awarded both to the team and jockey missing out on the ride. The team with the most points after the six races have been run will receive the Shergar Cup at the closing ceremony.


The six races are worth a total of £180,000 in prize money, paid down to 10th (last) place in all six races. With no entry fees to pay and £50 in numbercloth sponsorship per runner, these are the only races run during the year in Britain when every owner represented by a runner should be guaranteed to, at the very least, cover their costs.


Silver Saddle

The jockey amassing the most individual points will take home an additional £3,000 plus the “Silver Saddle” trophy.

David Flores in 2001, Richard Hughes in 2002, Kieren Fallon in 2003, Weichong Marwing in 2004, Ryan Moore in 2006, Hugh Bowman in 2007, Gerald Mosse in 2008 and Richard Hughes for a second time in 2009 are the past winners of the Silver Saddle.


Dubai Duty Free Ride Of The Day

For the second year running, one jockey will receive the Dubai Duty Free Ride Of The Day Award, which will be judged by former top jockeys John Reid and Joe Mercer.


Stable Staff Awards

The stable staff will once again benefit from special prizes worth over £5,000, more than on any other raceday in Britain. There is a £200 prize for the groom in charge of the best turned out horse in every race, while the winning lad or lass in each race will receive £200 plus a free entry (worth over £80) into the Dubai Duty Free Finest Surprise Draw to win a luxury car. In addition, £100 will be given to the lad or lass leading up the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th horses (i.e. the other points scorers) in every race.

"BEST DAY'S RACING FOR OWNERS"

* Free entry for every race - so there's nothing whatsoever to lose by entering


* £180,000 in prize money


* Last (10th) place prize money worth £430 in all races


* Number cloth sponsorship - £50 to the owner of every runner


* Free hospitality – high-class buffet lunch, afternoon tea and free bar all day for owners and trainers with runners or reserves


* Travel allowance of £500 for reserves if they do not get a run

RESERVES

There are two reserves for every race. A reserve can be brought in up to 45 minutes before each race. Runners have to declare to run one hour before each race, at which point there is a 15-minute window in which to bring in a reserve if there is a non-runner. Reserves that do not get a run will receive a £500 travel allowance.


LADBROKES – OFFICIAL BOOKMAKER TO THE DUBAI DUTY FREE SHERGAR CUP

For the fourth year, Ladbrokes is the Official Bookmaker to the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup and will be pricing up all the races and opening a book on the team competition and the Silver Saddle at the team selection stage.


Once again, Ladbrokes will deal with the reserve situation with a very simple rule. Anyone who takes an early price in a race in which a reserve subsequently comes in will have their bet settled with a Rule 4 (if applicable) on the non-runner and with the finishing position of the reserve discounted (e.g. if your horse finishes second to a reserve, you are on a winner; if you’re each-way bet finishes fourth with a reserve having made the first three, you will get paid out on your place bet). A new market will then be formed.


David Williams of Ladbrokes said: "We fervently believe that the Shergar Cup has a special place in the racing calendar and are delighted to once again be the official betting partner.


"We're embracing the 1980s theme with headbands and props for the after-racing concert and we're embracing the very best of contemporary betting with prize giveaways such as iPads and our annual bevvy of Ladbrokes Ladies on hand to guide Ascot newcomers along with placing their bets."





DUBAI DUTY FREE SHERGAR CUP RULES

The competition is an international jockeys’ tournament with 12 riders taking part, three jockeys riding for each of the four teams, Great Britain (GBR), Ireland (IRE), Europe (EUR) and Rest of the World (ROW). All horses entered are eligible to represent one of the four teams, regardless of ownership, and to be ridden by any of the jockeys participating in the competition.


The six races will be limited to 10 runners and two reserves.


Reserves must travel to Ascot on the day and can be substituted up until 45 minutes before their race. Reserves who do not run will be paid £500.


Entries must be made noon on Monday, August 2.


Declarations to run must be made at the 48-hour stage, by 10.00am on Thursday, August 5. The top 10 in the weights (including penalties) at the 48-hour declaration stage will run with those horses 11th and 12th in the weights acting as reserves.

DUBAI DUTY FREE SHERGAR CUP 'DRAW' PROCEDURE

The British Horseracing Authority has granted special permission to the Ascot Racecourse Executive to stage a 'Draw' at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Thursday, August 5, at which jockeys from the four competing teams of Great Britain, Ireland, Europe and the Rest of the World will be allocated to horses. The 'Draw' will be overseen by a British Horseracing Authority Official.


ALLOCATION OF HORSES TO TEAMS AND JOCKEYS TO MOUNTS

1. In all races, the horses selected to run will be those with highest official BHA ratings.


2. Once the final fields are known on Thursday, August 5th, the ten runners in each race will be ranked from 1 to 10 by form experts/odds compilers from Ladbrokes, the Official Bookmaker to the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup. A complex formula has been created to ensure that each of the four teams – Great Britain, Ireland, Europe and Rest of the World - receives a balanced spread of higher and lower ranked/priced horses and, further to that, that each of the three jockeys representing each team also gets a balanced spread of higher and lower ranked/priced horses for his/her five rides.


3. Once the ranking process has been completed, the four team names will go into a ballot. The order in which they are randomly drawn will determine which set of horses is allocated to each team.

4. A second ballot will then take place. The three jockeys representing each team will be drawn at random to determine an order (e.g. Great Britain 1, Great Britain 2 & Great Britain 3) and will then be allocated to their rides according to the set formula.


5. The allocation of rides by this method will be final. Any trainer declaring a horse to run at the 48-hour declaration stage is deemed to have accepted these conditions.


6. All owners of participating horses agree that jockeys will wear the colours of the team which they represent as part of a one-year trial agreed by the Racehorse Owners Association. This is the first year that the full colours worn by a jockey will correspond to his/her team. Jockeys riding for Great Britain will wear red and white colours; Ireland green and white colours; Europe blue and white colours; and the Rest of the World black and white colours. Owners’ sponsorship may be displayed by prior arrangement.


ABOUT DUBAI DUTY FREE

The World’s Number One

In a challenging year for the global duty free and travel retail industry, Dubai Duty Free has retained its position as the world’s single largest airport retailer based on sales last year of US$1.14 billion. This success looks set to continue following the announcement in July of a 16% increase in sales with turnover reaching US$607million for the first six months of the year.

Commenting on the first half sales figures, Colm McLoughlin, Managing Director of Dubai Duty Free, said: “We were pleased that 2010 began well for Dubai Duty Free as we have seen an increase in consumer spending across all categories, with average spend per departing passenger at US$47.”

Perfumes, which accounts for 14% of total sales at Dubai Duty Free, held on to one of the top spots with sales of US$84 million in the first half of the year, representing 18% increase over the same period last year, while Gold retained its third position, showing an increase of 11% to US$65 million.

Sales of Confectionery were up by 16% to US$49 million while Electronics rose by 7% to US$44 million accounting for 6% of total revenue.


Other notable increases in sales were seen in Cosmetics, which rose by 26%, Watches which rose by 33%, Delicatessen which rose by 15%, and Household with an increase of 14% over the same period last year.


While the successful running of the shop floor operation is a major focus for Dubai Duty Free, the organisation is highly committed to promoting Dubai through a series of high profile sporting events, such as championship golf and the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships which this year attracted all top 10 women and seven of the top 10 male players in the world.


Much brand awareness is created by the operation’s involvement in horseracing. In the UAE, the Group 1 Dubai Duty Free, the penultimate race on World Cup night, is the joint-richest turf race ever held at $5 million.


In addition to its title sponsorship of this event, Dubai Duty Free also backs the Spring Trials Meeting at Newbury in April and Ireland’s premier Group 1 Classic, the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby, at The Curragh in June.

Next month will see its portfolio of races at Newbury’s two-day September fixture, which already includes the Group 2 Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes, extended to include the £100,000 Dubai Duty Free Handicap.


Dubai Duty Free is a renowned name in major sporting events worldwide, and its marketing campaigns continue to promote not only its duty free operations, but also Dubai as a superb tourist destination.


REST OF THE WORLD TEAM

Anton Marcus (SAF) – Captain
South African jockey Anton Marcus, born January 31, 1970, is the younger brother of Basil Marcus, a multiple champion jockey in Hong Kong and now a trainer in Singapore. But despite that connection, Anton did not grow up around horses. Indeed, Basil had left home by the time Anton was born and it was an article in the newspaper about the South African Jockey Academy that sparked his interest. He decided, almost on the spur of the moment, to try his luck and entered the academy at Summerveld in Natal in 1985. Upon leaving the academy in 1988, he continued his education with trainer Stanley Amos. After two years he moved on to the now Australian-based David Payne in Natal for 18 months, followed by a two-year spell with Tony Millard in Johannesburg. A few years freelancing were punctuated at age 26 by a short stint in Hong Kong. He then joined the powerful Geoff Woodruff stable before moving on to Charles Laird with whom he continues to have a successful association. His first winner came aboard Lancaster Gardens on January 25, 1986, and he has gone on to become one of South Africa’s leading riders over the past 20 years, being crowned champion jockey on three occasions – 1999/2000, 2007/2008 and 2009/2010. During his career in South Africa, he has won many of the top races, but his biggest claim to fame is that he has won the Grade One Durban July, South Africa’s most prestigious handicap, on no fewer than four occasions, a record in modern times. Only Harold ‘Tiger’ Wright who won the race four times in the 1940s and 1950s can match his achievement. Marcus’ successes came in 1993 (Dancing Duel), 2000 (El Picha), 2005 (Dunford) and 2007 (Hunting Tower). He also partnered the South African champion filly Empress Club and the top-class sprinter/miler Jet Master. Our Giant gave him Grade One victories in the 2008 H F Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes and the 2009 Mercury Sprint, while Smart Banker captured the 2009 Champions Challenge under Marcus. He also rode high-class Hong Kong sprinter Firebolt to a Group Two success in the Sha Tin Vase Handicap in 2002. But it was Marcus’ win on Jay Peg in the US$5 million Dubai Duty Free on Dubai World Cup night in March, 2008, that propelled him in to the global limelight, the race in Dubai being worth some twelve times more in value than the Durban July. He previously partnered Jay Peg to victory in the 2007 Cape Guineas and the pair also enjoyed big-race success in 2008 when they beat off another international field to capture the Singapore Airlines International Cup at Kranji. Marcus has never ridden in Britain but he did attend a race meeting at Ascot prior to the redevelopment and “can’t wait” to compete at the racecourse in the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup.
Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup wins (0): Debut in 2010

Luke Nolen (AUS)
Born on March 12, 1980, Luke Nolen is the son of trainer and former jockey Vincent Nolen (more commonly known as Tal) whose short riding career ended after he took a couple of falls. Nolen grew up surrounded by horses on his parent’s farm in Benalla, north east Victoria. Apprenticed to Mansfield-based trainer Gerald Egan for three years, he moved on to Brian Mayfield-Smith’s stable but then struggled to get rides as he lost focus for a period and racing dropped down his priority list. His fortunes changed after a chance phone call from leading trainer Peter Moody in 2003, who mistakenly booked Nolen for two winning rides at Sale thinking that he was actually recruiting Luke’s brother Shaun. The pair soon struck up a formidable partnership, which has brought big-race successes, including with the filly Headway, winner of the Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes in October, 2009. Nolen has ridden six Group One winners this season, all for Moody. As well as Headway, the pair have been on the mark with Typhoon Tracy in the Myer Classic, Futurity Stakes and C. F. Orr Stakes, and Wanted in the Newmarket Handicap. Nolen has a total of 11 Group One wins in his career, with his biggest victory to date came astride El Segundo in the 2007 Cox Plate for trainer Colin Little. He also landed the 2006 Caulfield Guineas for Bart Cummings on Wonderful World. Nolen recently won his first Victoria Jockey Premiership. He suffered an horrific fall from Antidotes at Doomben racecourse on May 17, 2008, that left him unconscious with a broken palate, eye socket, cheekbone, nose and jaw, as well as damage to a knee. Remarkably he returned to race-riding barely three months later on August 20, rebuffing talks of retirement by saying: “I don’t know anything else. I had to get back on.” Nolen married Alicia in early 2008 and they have a young son, Dane. His only previous venture outside of Australia came when he rode in the New Zealand Derby. In his spare time, Nolen enjoys snowboarding and also owns a speed boat, which enables him to indulge in water skiing and wakeboarding.

Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup wins (0): Debut in 2010

Yasunari Iwata (JPN)
Born on March 12, 1974, in Himeji in the Hyogo prefecture of Southern Japan, Yasunari Iwata made his racecourse debut at the Sonoda racecourse in 1991. He soon gained a reputation as one of the up and coming jockeys in the National Association of Racing (NAR) circuit and won the Hyogo Triple Crown in 1996. He topped the jockey standings in Hyogo for the first time in 2000 and went on to win the local championship in both 2002 and 2004. After consistently recording more than 200 winners a season, Iwata notched his 3,000th career success in December, 2005. While still affiliated to the NAR, Iwata also rode in some of the major races of the rival Japanese Racing Association (JRA), and he enjoyed his first Pattern success when Believe triumphed in the Grade Two Centaur Stakes at Hanshin in September, 2002. He became the first NAR jockey to win a JRA Classic race on October 24, 2004, as Delta Blues prevailed in the Kikuka Sho (Japanese St Leger) at Kyoto. Iwata joined the JRA full-time in 2006 and had a superb first campaign on Japan’s premier racing circuit, recording 126 wins, with three Graded successes. He shot to international prominence in November, 2006, as he linked up with Delta Blues once more for a thrilling victory in the Melbourne Cup in Flemington - with the pair becoming the first Japanese horse and jockey to win Australia’s greatest race. Further big-race success followed in Japan in 2007, as he partnered Admire Moon to Grade One success in both the Takarazuka Kinen and the Japan Cup and registered 145 wins in the season, second only to the legendary Yutake Take. Iwata’s star continued to rise in 2008 as he recorded 13 grade-race wins including four Grade One successes, headed by the victories of Admire Moon in the Tenno Sho Spring and superstar mare Vodka in the Yasuda Kinen. A fabulous 2008 campaign saw Iwata win a total of 131 races and his earnings of 3,160,046,000 yen earned him the JRA Award for Best Jockey (money earned), ending the seven-year reign of Yutaka Take. He enjoyed another profitable season in 2009, registering 109 wins to take third in the championship behind Hiroyuki Uchida and Yutake Take and enjoying Grade One success in the Satsuki Sho (the Japanese 2000 Guineas) with Unrivaled and in the Japan Dirt Derby on Testa Malta. As of July 25, Iwata was second in the JRA standings for the current season with 61 wins, with the highlight so far being a second successive victory in the Satsuki Sho, this time on Victoir Pisa. Iwata is also no stranger to jockeys’ team events, having taken part in Japan’s World Super Jockeys Series on five occasions (winning the competition in 2005) as well as the Hong Kong Challenge in 2008.

EUROPE TEAM

Olivier Peslier (FRA) - Captain
Born at Cossé-le-Vivien on January 12, 1971, the son of a stonemason, Peslier sprang to prominence in 1996 when winning his first Cravache d’Or (France’s jockeys’ title) with 163 winners, ending the four-year reign of Thierry Jarnet. He took the title thrice more, in 1997 with 154 successes, 1999 (147 wins) and 2000 (162 wins). He won three consecutive Prix de l’Arc de Triomphes on Sagamix (1998), Peintre Celebre (1997) and Helissio (1996). Peslier is one of the world’s leading jockeys and has tasted top-flight success across the globe.

Christophe Soumillon (BEL)
One of the world’s leading jockeys, the Belgian-born but French-based Christophe Soumillon made a sensational start to his career. Born in Brussels on June 4, 1981, the son of a retired jump jockey turned trainer was initially apprenticed to Cedric Boutin while attending the Moulin a Vent school in Chantilly, where many other French riders have learned their trade. He rode his first winner on November 7, 1997, aboard 75/1 shot Bruni, trained by Boutin. Champion apprentice in 1999, Soumillon was signed up as apprentice to the all-conquering Andre Fabre stable and Thierry Jarnet’s departure at the same time meant that he was effectively second jockey at the yard. He has been champion jockey in France on three occasions (2003, 2005 & 2006), his best total being 226 winners in 2006. He rode five winners in a day in April, 2000, and again in September, 2006, with his haul including the Prix Vermeille, Prix Foy and Prix Niel. He won his first French Derby in 2001 on the Carlos Lerner-trained Anabaa Blue and, following Gerald Mosse’s departure to Hong Kong, Soumillon took over as retained jockey to the Aga Khan in France in October, 2001. As a result of that association, Soumillon rode the great unbeaten Zarkava in each of her seven races, winning five Group One contests, including the Prix de Diane and Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in 2008. He has recorded three wins in the French 2,000 Guineas (2001 Vahorimix, 2003 Clodovil, 2009 Silver Frost), three successes in the French 1,000 Guineas (2003 Musical Chimes, 2007 Darjina, 2008 Zarkva), three French Derbys (2001 Anabaa Blue, 2003 Dalakhani, 2006 Darsi), two Prix de l’Arc de Triomphes (2003 Dalakhani, 2008 Zarkava), a Breeders’ Cup Turf (2005 Shirocco) a King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2006 Hurricane Run), as well as a whole strong of other major prizes. Soumillon is no stranger to controversy and had fracas in a Hong Kong bar with trainer John Moore’s son in December, 2008. He also had a widely publicised spat with trainer Andre Fabre and it was announced in August, 2009, that his retainer with the Aga Khan was to end, a move that shocked the jockey. In June, 2010, he made his debut over hurdles and four days later at Auteuil, he enjoyed a first success in that sphere when racing to a wide-margin victory in the French Champion Hurdle atop Mandali. Soumillon enjoys paintballing, go-karting and riding his Welsh pony in the Chantilly forests with his two Jack Russells as an escape from racing.

Umberto Rispoli (ITY)
The son of a jockey, Umberto Rispoli was born on August 31, 1988 in San Severino Marche in the Marche region of central Italy. He started riding out at age 10 and moved to Rome when he was just 13 to gain experience at the stable of Fabrizio and Luigi Camici. After a spell furthering his education with trainer Armando Maggi, Rispoli graduated from the apprentices’ school at Pisa in 2004, and linked up with the powerful stable of the Botti brothers, Alduino and Giuseppe, where he is first jockey for Alduino’s son Stefano Botti, who took over the yard in May, 2009, after the departure of the older duo to France. Rispoli had his first public ride when coming second on Polar Eagle at Varese on February 5, 2005 and only had to wait 14 days to enjoy his first success as Peace Maker won at the same course. In his first season, Rispoli was leading apprentice with 82 winners to his name and he went on to notch 134 victories in 2006, a total that saw him take fourth in the jockeys’ championship. In November, 2009, Rispoli broke Gianfranco Dettori’s 27-year-old Italian record of 229 winners in a season, pushing the new mark to 245 at the end of the campaign. He enjoyed a first Group race success on Armando Renzoni-trained Lui Rei, who won the Premio Primo Passi at Milan’s San Siro racecourse on June 22, 2008. He also rode Permesso to finish second in that year’s Italian Derby and filled the same spot in the Classic 12 months later on Turati. Rispoli is no stranger to British racing having enjoyed a brief spell in the UK in the winter of 2007/08, working for Alduino Botti’s son Marco at Newmarket and enjoyed a first British success when Satyricon landed a Kempton Park claimer on January 18, 2008. He has also been successful in Germany and represented his country in the “Young Stars Championship” at the international jockey series in Mauritius in December, 2008.

GREAT BRITAIN TEAM

Hayley Turner - Captain
Hayley Turner, the joint champion UK apprentice jockey in 2005, is generally acknowledged as the most successful female rider to emerge in the 400 year history of the Sport of Kings in this country. Born on January 3, 1983, in Nottingham, Turner was taught to ride by her mother, a riding instructor. She started riding out for trainer Mark Polglase, who supplied her first winner, Generate, at Pontefract on June 4, 2000. She also attended the Northern Racing College, and then was apprenticed to Michael Bell in Newmarket. Turner became the first woman to be crowned champion apprentice when partnering 44 winners during the 2005 Flat (turf) season sharing the title with Saleem Golam. She also became only the fourth woman in Britain to ride out her claim, following Alex Greaves, Emma O'Gorman and Lisa Jones. She has ridden in Dubai over the winter months, including for Godolphin. Her success during the 2005 season led to Turner being awarded a Lester for apprentice jockey of the year the first woman ever to land the award. Turner competed in the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup in 2006 and nearly won the Les Ambassadeurs Club Shergar Cup Mile when going down by a short head on Tucker. She has ridden over 400 winners. She enjoyed her first victory in the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup in 2007 when she won the Barclays Shergar Cup Juvenile with 33/1 chance Relative Order and finished second behind Australian Hugh Bowman in the Silver Saddle standings. Turner was also on the mark in 2008 when she captained the GB team for the first time, scoring aboard Gee Dee Nen in the St Hallett Shergar Cup Stayers. That same year, she became the first female jockey to partner 100 winners in a calendar year in Britain. Turner was forced to miss four months of the 2009 Flat season after an incident on the Newmarket gallops that March, when catapulted from the horse she was riding and knocked unconscious. Turner’s injuries - bruising to the brain - were originally considered serious enough that her licence was suspended for a year. However, following an appeal hearing at the BHA in July, she was declared fit to resume race riding and was back in action at Ascot the following day. She captained the GBR team for a second time at the 2009 Shergar Cup, winning the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup Sprint aboard Noverre To Go, and fills the same role for a third time in 2010. She enjoyed one of her biggest moments in the saddle when winning the Group Two Lancashire Oaks on Barshiba at Haydock Park on July 3.

Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup wins (3): 2007 Relative Order; 2008 Gee Dee Nen; 2009 Noverre To Go.


Jim Crowley
Born on July 14, 1978, Jim Crowley hails from Ascot, where his parents trained point-to-pointers and reared him on a diet of hunting and showjumping. His first two jobs were with trainers John White and Ron Hodges and although he first made an impression as an amateur on the Flat, he soon switched his attention to jumping, attached to Sue Smith’s West Yorkshire stable. He rode around 300 winners over obstacles, including the 2005 Lanzarote Hurdle on Crossbow Creek, before deciding to concentrate solely on the Flat. Based at Pulborough, Crowley rode principally for his sister-in-law Amanda Perrett before being signed up as stable jockey to Ralph Beckett last season. His biggest wins on the level include Bulwark in the 2008 Chester Cup, Lord Shanakill in the 2009 Group One Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly and Illustrious Blue in this season’s Group Two Goodwood Cup. He is married to Amanda Perrett’s sister Lucinda.

Alan Munro
Born on January 14, 1967, Alan Munro grew up in Hertfordshire and - after seeing a piece about Steve Cauthen on John Craven’s Newsround - decided he wanted to be a jockey and left school aged 16. He rode his first winner for trainer Barry Hills on Sentimental Roses at Yarmouth in August, 1985, and joined Mel Brittain’s North Yorkshire stable the following year while spending winters riding in America. He moved on to ride for Bill O’Gorman, winning the 1990 Coventry Stakes on Macs Imp and was appointed retained rider to owner Prince Fahd Salman in the spring of 1991. A superb first season including three top-class victories on the Paul Cole-trained Generous, who triumphed in the Epsom Derby before going on to annex the Irish equivalent and the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot. In the mid 1990s he headed to the Far East, riding in Japan and Hong Kong before in 2000 deciding he wanted to take a break from horses. He took up Shoringi-ryu Karate and is now a black belt in the martial art but decided it was time for a return to racing, explaining “No-one calls and you lose your identity - you have to readjust to being just a small person in the world and it's really hard.'' He returned to Britain in 2005 and, riding mainly for Rod Millman, had 60 successes including victories in the Northumberland Plate, totesport Ebor and totesport Cesarewitch on Sergeant Cecil. He also rode for Jeremy Noseda and enjoyed significant success on Araafa, who took the Irish 2,000 Guineas and St James’s Palace Stakes in 2006. Unfortunately, a spell on the sidelines followed and Munro was out of action for 18 months after suffering a blackout induced by low blood pressure on a flight to Deauville in August, 2006. Having received the all-clear, he returned to action in early 2008, riding his first winner at Mont de Marsan in France in February and making a making a successful return to England four days later when partnering General Blucher to success at Lingfield. A productive 2008 campaign also included an eighth Royal Ascot win on Langs Lash in the Queen Mary Stakes, a brace of wins at Glorious Goodwood courtesy of Gravitation and Indian Days, as well as a valuable York handicap success on Brave Prospector. Alan enjoyed a notable double in Turkey last season as he partnered the Mick Channon-trained Eva’s Request to victory in the Istanbul Cup at Veliefendi and scored for the same trainer in the prestigious Bosphorus Cup the following day aboard Halicarnassus. He also enjoyed further international success on board Eva’s Request in the Group One Premio Lydia Tesio in Italy.

IRELAND TEAM

Richard Hughes - Captain
Richard Hughes was born in Ireland on January 11, 1973, and served his apprenticeship with his father Dessie, a former top-class National Hunt rider who trains in Co Kildare and won the 2004 and 2005 Champion Hurdles at Cheltenham with Hardy Eustace. Richard had his first ride at Naas on March 19, 1988, when finishing 10th of 15 and enjoyed his first success on Viking Melody at Roscommon that August. He came over to Britain in 1994. He was appointed as Prince Khalid Abdulla’s retained jockey in 2001 but that association came to an end at the end of 2007. He rides regularly for Richard Hannon, to whose daughter Lizzie he is married. The 5ft 9in Hughes has, like his father, also ridden winners over jumps but concentrates on the Flat. His biggest successes include the 2004 French 2,000 Guineas on American Post, the 2003 French Oaks on Nebraska Tornado, the 1996 Italian Derby on Bahamian Knight, the 1996 Group One Premio Vittorio di Capua on Mistle Cat, the 2001 Group One Prix d’Ispahan on Observatory and the 2002 Group One French 1,000 Guineas on Zenda. Hughes had a long-awaited first British Group One success when Oasis Dream landed the 2003 Darley July Cup and he went on to land the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes on the same horse. Indian Ink gave him a Group One success at Royal Ascot when taking the 2007 Coronation Stakes. He has enjoyed a stellar 2010 so far, winning three Group Ones on Canford Cliffs - the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, the Irish 2,000 Guineas and the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. He has also scored at the highest level this season in the Prix Jean Prat on Dick Turpin and in the totesport.com Lockinge Stakes on Paco Boy. He won the Silver Saddle for being the leading jockey at the Shergar Cup in both 2002 and 2009.

Pat Smullen
Born at Rhodes in County Offaly on May 22, 1977, Pat Smullen - whose father worked on a farm - became involved in horses at the age of 11 when accompanying his brother Sean to Joanna Morgan’s stud and sales yard - he went on to show jump and event. He then spent a four-year apprenticeship with local trainer Tommy Lacy, enjoying a first success aboard Vicosa in an apprentices’ handicap at the Dundalk evening meeting on June 11, 1993. It was Lacy who suggested to Smullen that he ride for trainer Erwan Charpy in Dubai during the winter of 1997/98 and he has since become one of the leading riders in the Middle East through the winter months. Smullen spent two years with Tommy Stack and had a first Group One win when the Stack-trained Tarascon won the 1997 Moyglare Stud Stakes. He became stable jockey to Dermot Weld in 1999 following Mick Kinane’s departure to Aidan O’Brien’s stable. Smullen, who is married to the former leading Irish trainer (and Aidan O’Brien’s sister-in-law) Frances Crowley, was Ireland’s champion jockey in 2000 (80 wins), 2001 (81 wins), 2005 (67 wins), 2007 (94 wins) and 2008 (72 wins). His major wins include the 2004 Irish Derby and 2005 Tattersalls Gold Cup on Grey Swallow, 2003 2,000 Guineas on Refuse To Bend, the Irish St Leger from 2001-2004 on Vinnie Roe, 2002 Matron Stakes on Dress To Thrill, Irish 1,000 Guineas on Nightime in 2006 and again in 2010 aboard Bethrah, the 2007 Prix de l’Abbaye on Benbaun, the 2009 Tattersalls Gold Cup on Casual Conquest, the 2010 Pretty Polly Stakes on Chinese White and the 2010 Ascot Gold Cup on Rite Of Passage. In 2008 he landed a first Breeders’ Cup success in the Breeders’ Cup Marathon aboard Muhannak, while Dress To Thrill also gave him Stateside victory in the 2002 Matriarch Stakes.

Fran Berry
Francis Martin Berry was born on January 2, 1981, and was bred to be a jockey. His father Frank was a Classic-winning apprentice who was Irish champion jump rider 10 times and - after a spell training - is now racing manager to owner J P McManus. Fran Berry, whose brother Alan is a successful National Hunt amateur, originally made his name as a jump jockey, winning the 1999 Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival on Khayrawani. Despite being 5 foot 8 inches tall, he is able to ride off 8st 8lb and now concentrates on the Flat. He served as second rider behind Mick Kinane at John Oxx's powerful Curragh stable from 2002 until the end of 2009 when Kinane retired and Berry was promoted to the number one spot. He was five clear in the Irish jockeys' championship in August, 2005, when suffering a bad fall at the Curragh resulting in a fractured vertebra and displaced sternum. He still finished second to Pat Smullen in the 2005 championship and was fourth in 2006 with 57 successes, third in 2007 with 80 wins, runner-up with 85 wins in 2008, just five adrift of Pat Smullen, and third in 2009 with 73 wins. He has had one Royal Ascot success, landing the 2005 Ascot Stakes on the Tony Martin-trained Leg Spinner, while another major win in Britain came when Duff landed the 2009 Park Stakes at Doncaster.

REMEMBERING SHERGAR

Shergar’s name is etched in racing folklore as much for his headline-grabbing demise as for his exceptional performances on the racecourse, the most scintillating of those being his record-breaking victory in the 1981 Derby.


Famously kidnapped by the IRA following his retirement to stud, the Aga Khan’s colt was one of the finest Derby winners of the 20th century and without argument the best racehorse of his generation with a lofty Timeform rating of 140.


Trained by Michael Stoute in Newmarket, Shergar won impressively on his first start as a two-year-old before finishing second to the more experienced Beldale Flutter on his only other outing in what is now the Racing Post Trophy.


Having been rated 31st among his peers in the 1980 European Free Handicap, Shergar commenced his Classic season as a 33/1 ante-post chance for the Derby. Those odds tumbled after a 10-length victory in Sandown’s Classic Trial was followed by a 12-length demolition in the Chester Vase.


Shergar lined up at Epsom as the 10/11 favourite for Derby glory. He did not disappoint his supporters as he once again accelerated away from inferior rivals to register a stunning 10-length success - the widest winning margin in the long history of the race.


With the Epsom Classic in the bag, Shergar went to the Curragh and added the Irish Derby by four lengths before routing his elders by the same distance in Britain’s premier all-age middle-distance contest, the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.


The stage was set for an autumn hurrah in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp but in an unexpected twist, connections decided to take in the St Leger at Doncaster. The extended mile and three quarters of the world’s oldest Classic proved beyond Shergar’s stamina reserves and he could fare no better than fourth.

That defeat was to be Shergar’s final race. Valued at £10 million, the colt retired to the Aga Khan’s Ballymany Stud in Ireland but on February 8, 1983, hooded gunmen seized the stallion. A £2-million ransom was demanded and refused. Shergar’s fate remains a mystery.
