20 Jun Gunther Horse Wins Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot
Leede Jones Gable advisor John Gunther and daughter Tanya Gunther’s storybook season got even better June 19, as their homebred colt Without Parole bested nine rivals to land the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.
The father and daughter have already enjoyed a banner year as the breeders of Triple Crown winner Justify and were on hand to witness Without Parole take one of the most prestigious races of the week under rider Frankie Dettori.
Speaking after the race, John Gunther was quick to reveal just how much the win meant to him.
“This does mean more (than breeding Triple Crown winner Justify) and always will,” Gunther exclaimed. “This was the most important and means everything to me.”
