2000 Guineas 2006 - Result

2006 Winner - George WashingtonThe Aiden O’Brien trained George Washington won the 2006 Two Thousand Guineas in fantastic style under jockey, Kieran Fallon. Fallon rode the colt handily until they reached the two furlong marker and when he came to the front, he settled matters within a few strides. He coasted from that moment and came home 2½ lengths from Marcus Tregoning’s Sir Percy , who was followed by Olympian Odyssey in third and Araafa fourth.

Sir Percy of course went on to win the 2006 Epsom Derby and Araafa, gained revenge on George Washington, three weeks later when beating him into second in the Irish 2000 Guineas. Despite those defeats, George Washington did go on to win the Queen Elizabeth 11 Stakes at Royal Ascot.
