Emily Upjohn: Now 14-1 for next year’s Arc
Saturday: Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes, Ascot
Emily Upjohn reignited dreams that she could become an Arc contender again as the exciting three-year-old ended the season with the same gusto with which she started it.
The Sea The Stars daughter, who was electric in her first two starts at Sandown and York’s Musidora Stakes in May, bounced back from a nightmare to win with the same dazzle that once put her at the top of betting for the Bow.
It happened, albeit for a short time, after an epic performance in a heartbreaking second after a dismal start at the Oaks in June. More frustration came a month later when she collapsed in the King George on her next start.
He was a horse seemingly destined to win a Group 1, but luckily the Gosdens know precisely how to prepare their middle-distance fillies to deliver. A three-month break and fitting a balaclava for the first time left her rejuvenated and arguably better than ever for the final day feast of British Flat racing.
Frankie Dettori was brimming with confidence after the Kinross win earlier, and his mount seemed to be in a similar mood. She traveled with ease and authority, exploded into the lead down the straight and found plenty of pressure to charge clean and win by three lengths, justifying 3-1 favoritism.
Irish-trained Thunder Kiss and Insinuendo filled the spots at odds of 50-1 and 80-1 respectively.
The winner’s owners Andrew and Madeleine Lloyd Webber, Stuart Roden and Jonathan Shack, whose horses race under his company name Tactful Finance, have a lot to look forward to as they have confirmed she will remain in training in 2023.
The bookies are making Emily Upjohn 14-1 second favorite for next year’s Arc, and an excited Shack told ITV Racing: “With luck on our side, we’ll try to do what Alpinista has done and win the Arc.
“She’s the best three-year-old filly. You have to be ready for the ups and downs [in racing], but the point I made was that we spent two years in lockdown, lost a lot of friends to Covid, so we have to seize each day and enjoy it. That’s what it’s all about.”

Dettori, winning this race for the sixth time, added: “She had a lot of TLC at home and the team did a good job of keeping her quiet and it paid off. Well done everyone.
“It was a great performance after three months off. I had to go three wide and she won by three lengths, so it was a first class performance.”
