In addition to the great race, there are three others that are worth noting: the first of them has been the Longines Handicap Stakes (1,600m) reserved for amazons, and that has ended with the triumph of Cliffs of Capri (with Miss G. Andrews ). Another memorable race has been The Princess Margaret Keeneland Stakes, and has had as winner the exemplary Angel's Hydeaway, ridden by R. Havley. Finally, mention the third of the day, The Gigaset International Stakes, where the victory was for Burnt Sugar with the riding of S. W. Kelly.
