Trainer Mark Johnston joined Sir Michael Stoute as the most successful trainer of all time at Glorious Goodwood as a double with Sir Ron Priestley and Mrs Bouquet took him to 80 winners at this midsummer festival meeting.
The double also made Johnston the first British trainer to win 50 winners in a month, having broken his own record of 47.
Johnston has had 208 runners in July with 33 seconds and 25 thirds contributing to his £1,099.472 in prize money over the 31 days.
Johnston trained Mrs Bouquet rides to victory in race five on day two at Goodwood
Johnston has racked up over £1 million in prize money over the past 31 days
Johnston’s record-breaking achievements came a day after the torrential storms which hit North Yorkshire washed away six furlongs of his all-weather gallop, caused horses to be moved from flooded boxes as well as flooding his home.
Johnston said: ‘I don’t know how bad it is back home but there are an awful lot of people worse off and the horses are still getting out. Everyone said they had never seen rain like it.
‘It has been fantastic. We push numbers all the time and it’s nice beating these records if we can.’
