2018 Hardwicke Stakes Result


Crystal Ocean remained unbeaten in 2018 when taking out the Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The Sir Michael Stoute-trained runner scored easily by 2.5 lengths and the win was never in danger as Red Verdon chased gamely but could not bridge the gap. The four-year-old colt was one of the best-backed runners during the festival, closing at 4/7 with bookmakers.
