Outstanding third in Belmont Oaks


Outstanding earned a decent chunk of prize-money in America on Saturday as Ballydoyle's filly finished third in the Belmont Oaks Invitational Stakes.

Colm O'Donoghue's partner arrived in the USA after securing back-to-back victories at Naas and ran creditably for Aidan O'Brien in the Grade One over a mile and a quarter.

The daughter of Galileo was, however, no match for odds-on favourite Lady Eli, who held a three-and-a-half-length advantage over Outstanding at the line.

Victorious trainer Chad Brown said: "The term 'breathes different air' gets thrown around a lot when someone has a very good horse, and I've been lucky to have some great turf fillies and mares, but this one 'breathes different air', for sure.

"She certainly has the most devastating turn of foot I've ever worked around."
