How Many Winners Will Wesley Ward Have At Royal Ascot 2023 Odds
Wesley Ward Royal Ascot Contenders
Few American trainers have experienced as much success at Royal Ascot than Wesley Ward. The American has won 12 times at the Royal Meet, and has sent over a total of 83 runners, meaning that those that have wagered on all his entries would have won a profit of $32.50. Campanelle is one of the standout raiders, having landed twice at Royal Ascot in 2020 and 2021.
However, his most memorable success came in the form of Lady Aurelia. She was a shock winner of the Queen Mary under the ride of Frankie Dettori in 2016, before returning to Ascot 12 months last to land the King’s Stand. Ward’s 2017 raid was one of his most successful, with Con Te Partiro also landed a shock +2000 win in the Sandringham.
Lady Aurelia’s offspring is one of Ward’s leading contenders this year, as American Rascal could be one of the stars of the week. He was a devastating winner on debut at Keeneland in early April, building excitement ahead of his trip to Royal Ascot. The Norfolk could be among the best races of the week, with the American two-year-old clashing with the impressing Elite Status.
The Queen Mary has been one of Ward’s most popular races, as he has landed success on four occasions. He has two chances in the contest this year, with Bundchen looking the most realistic contender. Fandom is one of his younger runners to keep an eye on in the Windsor Castle, while Twilight Gleaming and Love Reigns are the pick of his other runners in the Queen Mary and Jersey Stakes, respectively.
Royal Ascot Wesley Ward Props Prediction
It was a disappointing 2022 visit to Royal Ascot for Ward, as he failed to land a single victory. However, we expect him to record at least one victory at the Royal meet this year. We could see that success coming in the form of the hugely progressive Love Reigns.
