Hughes: Out of luck at Kempton in his own race
New champion jockey Richard Hughes failed win the Listed race named in his honour at Kempton on Wednesday evening.
Hughes partnered the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Sequence in the Congratulations Champion Jockey Richard Hughes Floodlit Stakes over 12 furlongs at the Sunbury venue.
Sequence travelled well on the heels of the front-running Media Hype, but the distress signals were evident at the top of the home straight and Hughes' mount quickly faded out of the places.
That left Spring Of Fame to lead home a one-two for Godolphin with Modun in second and Viking Storm third.
