Aiden O’Brien has become the most successful trainer of all five British Classic Races – 1000 Guinea, 2000 Guinea, Oaks, Derby and St. Ledger – with a victory at Epsom’s Casu Oaks this afternoon.

Outside of Lily Lantry, Galileo’s daughter Balidwell transferred the instructor to 41 British classic successes, which she previously shared with John Scott, who won 40 classic victories between 1827 and 1863.

O’Brien’s 41 classic wins, however, have been achieved in just 23 years, his first British classic victory being the King of Kings success at Newmarket 1998-2000 Guinness.

Handler’s first Epsom Classic, born in County Wexford, came through Oaks Shahtush in 1998, when the next super sir, the late Galileo, delivered the first of his record eight Derby wins in 2001.
