Flores to Ride at Royal Ascot

Jockey David Flores, who had been booked to ride Godolphin's Tempera in the Kentucky Oaks, will be riding for the powerful stable at Royal Ascot in June.

Last year, the California-based jockey rode many of Godolphin's 2-year-olds in training with Eoin Harty. He flew to Dubai earlier this year to ride Tempera in the UAE Oaks and was retained to ride that one in the Kentucky Oaks and Godolphin's Essence of Dubai in the Kentucky Derby.

The Royal Ascot meet begins June 13 and concludes June 18.
