NEWSELLS Park Stud has bred some very good horses and its latest star is Legatissimo, the filly who won the Group 1 Qipco 1000 Guineas Stakes (British Champions Series) at Newmarket last Sunday.

From a furlong out it was obvious that the prize was going to Ireland as the Jim Bolger-trained favourite Lucida (by Shamardal) went for home, but although she finished four and a half lengths clear of her closest pursuer, Tiggy Wiggy (by Kodiac), she was unable to resist the strong finish of her David Wachman-trained rival who passed her by in the closing stages to win by three-parts of a length.
