Shocked punters ask 'what did we just witness?!' as Big Rock utterly destroys rivals on Champions Day at Ascot | The Sun
'MINDBLOWING' horse Big Rock absolutely demolished rivals in Ascot's Queen Elizabeth II Stakes to leave punters totally floored.
The Christopher Head-trained superstar led from the front all the way and no one else got within six lengths.
Sent off 5-1, he should have been 1-5 as he skipped over the soft ground while others could barely crawl.
Punters were absolutely stunned by the colossal winning margin – which never looked in doubt even at half-way.
Superstars such as Paddington, Chaldean and Nashwa could only watch in envy as Big Rock scooted home under Aurelien Lemaitre.
Facteur Cheval was second at 14-1 completing a 1-2 for France in the mile contest.
While Dermot Weld's wondermare Tahiyra was third under jockey Chris Hayes.
One commentator described Big Rock's win as 'absolutely mindblowing'.
While one punter said: "Jesus Christ – that was good!"
Another comment read: "What did we just witness? Big Rock blows them away!"
