This is the 10th American-trained winner of the Golden Shaheen since its inception in 1996.

Winning jockey Garrett Gomez said, "It was wonderful. I just wanted to get involved in the race early and once he got involved, he traveled well the whole way and in the last 400 meters, he stayed on well. He ran a wonderful race."

Winning trainer Carl O'Callaghan confirmed he will send Kinsale King to Royal Ascot for the Golden Jubilee Stakes. He added, "I knew I had it won when I put the saddle on him. I wasn't too worried about who else was in the race, but it was just amazing. Leave it to the Irishman. He's a great horse, has a lot of heart. he's a grinder and he just keeps going. His preparation went well. We took him to Golden Gate to work him on the Tapeta surface there and he went well and he travelled over here well – there was never one hitch. I don't need to do a whole lot with him. I just give him his eggs and his Guinness, and let him go. This is what I want to do with my life and hopefully this proves that I can train and that it opens up a few more doors for me."
