NEWMARKET, England (AP) — Jockey Ryan Moore completed a double of British classic wins this weekend by riding Legatissimo to victory in the 1,000 Guineas on Sunday.

A day after winning the 2,000 Guineas — a race for colts — over the same course at Newmarket, Moore bided his time on Legatissimo before she came from the back of the field at halfway to overhaul favorite Lucinda. The winning margin in the fillies classic was three-quarters of a length.

Moore won both races for trainer David Wachman and for his Coolmore owners.

Legatissimo went off at odds of 13-2. Tiggy Wiggy was third.
