Legatissimo lands prize at Gowran
26 Apr 2015 16:04
Legatissimo swept clear in the hands of Wayne Lordan to run out an impressive winner of the Irish Stallion Farms European Breeders Fund Victor McCalmont Memorial Stakes at Gowran Park.
-
Having won her final four starts as a three-year-old for the formidable combination of Dermot Weld and Pat Smullen, Carla Bianca was all the rage for the Listed feature, sent off the 4-5 favourite on her first start since August.
-
The David Wachman-trained Legatissimo was second best in the market at 3-1 after finishing fourth on her seasonal reappearance in the Leopardstown 1,000 Guineas Trial a fortnight ago.
-
Queen Of Alba cut out the early running, with Aidan O'Brien's Wedding Vow and Carla Bianca her closest pursuers.
-
Legatissimo, however, was ridden more patiently and arrived on the scene full of running with two of the nine furlongs left to run.
-
With Carla Bianca weakening tamely, Wedding Vow put up most resistance, but Wachman's charge had too many guns and quickened three and three-quarter lengths clear.
-
Euphrasia beat Carla Bianca to third spot.
