Without Parole
 
Trainer John Gosden's St James's Palace Stakes victory with Without Parole was his 45th Royal Ascot winner, his second in the mile Group One race for three-year-olds (Kingman took it in 2014) and his second of the day, following Calyx's G1 Coventry Stakes success.
 
Without Parole, a son of Frankel and ridden by Frankie Dettori, was the 9/4 favourite and beat the fast-finishing Gustav Klimt by half a length. He is owned and bred by John and Tanya Gunther, who bred American Triple Crown winner Justify.
 
Gosden said: "US Navy Flag had gone, and Frankie said, 'I had to go after him - I was frightened he had got three lengths, and in the end I went a bit soon'. Then of course with Aidan [trainer of both US Navy Flag and Gustav Klimt] there is another arrow at your back - there always is another arrow. 
 
"But look, Without Parole is a grand horse. There were no hiding places in that race. It was proper, proper Group One pace. I think he is still on the up and still learning. At the moment he has a bigger middle than me, which is not a good thing in a racehorse!
 
"I think he could stay at a mile or go up. I think he was green on the bend and Frankie was having to say, 'come on old boy, come on old boy'. He's so lazy at home. I've never seen a horse eat and sleep like it, which is a great, great thing in a racehorse. I think he will improve, he'll get sharper and I think he will get a little further too."
 
Owner/breeder John Gunther said: "It is a dream come true. In all the 20 years I have been coming to Royal Ascot, my dream was just to have a horse run at Royal Ascot. Then we start in a Group One and do it; I don't know what to say.
 
"This does mean more [than breeding Triple Crown winner Justify] and always will. This was the most important and means everything to me. To be able to mate the mare to Frankel and Juddmonte giving me that nomination even though the mare was unproven. To go through all that and then watch Without Parole being raised as a yearling was so special. 
 
"The mare had not proven herself but, after we bred her to Frankel, she got her G1 winner [Tamarkuz] and proved herself. Juddmonte allowing me to bred that mare to Frankel meant everything, believe me, because I love Frankel so much.
 
"John Gosden and Frankie. What a team! They are unbelievable."
