Racing experts are consulting the record books after Kent trainer John Best's Stone of Folca recorded what's believed to be the fastest ever time for a five furlong race during the Epsom Derby Day meeting in front of her majesty the Queen.

The 50-1 long shot left the rest of the twenty strong field standing to win in a time of 53.69 seconds in the prestigious Investec five furlong dash.

The Detling yard's four year old, ridden by Luke Morris,won by nearly a second and a half.

Trainer John Best said " I believe not only was it the first time the race has been won from a stall lower than 9, but also the fastest time recorded electronically for any 5f race! We will almost certainly take our chances at Royal Ascot, although that will be a huge step up. "
