Legatissimo takes the Nassau Stakes
01 Aug 2015 18:06
Legatissimo claimed the Qatar Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood as the 2-1 favourite ran out a most impressive winner.
-
Although renewing rivalry with Diamondsandrubies, her conqueror in the Pretty Polly Stakes, as well clashing with French Oaks heroine Star Of Seville, the David Wachman-trained three-year-old proved a cut above with a performance in line with the one that saw her clinch the Qipco 1000 Guineas.
-
Star Of Seville, after mastering an early battle with Arabian Queen, took the field along in the mile-and-a-quarter contest with Wayne Lordan content on anchoring the daughter of Danehill Dancer at the rear of the field.
-
As Frankie Dettori aboard the long-time leader started to issue distress signals, like many of his rivals approaching the run to the final two furlongs, Lordan sat almost motionless as his mount moved powerfully into contention.
-
Once the 'go' button was pressed, the response was immediate and within a matter of strides the race was over as Legatissimo demonstrated her rapid turn off foot to quickly put daylight between herself and her rivals.
-
The Aidan O'Brien-trained Wedding Vow (10-1) stayed on late in the day, but finished two-and-a-quarter lengths adrift of the winner.
