The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Pimlico Press Staff — Two days after Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the age of 96 following a 70-year reign, a horse she bred in England won Saturday’s second race at historic Pimlico Race Course.

West Newton, a 6-year-old gelding ridden by Forest Boyce for trainer Richard Hendriks, rallied from sixth to win by a half-length while covering a firm 1 1/8-mile turf course in 1:52.12.

West Newton, out of the mare Queen’s Prize, also bred by the late monarch, had been competing over hurdles. It was West Newton’s fourth career win in 19 starts.
