Horse bred by Queen Elizabeth II wins race at Pimlico

BALTIMORE — A horse bred by Queen Elizabeth II won a race at Pimlico on Saturday, two days after the British monarch died after seven decades on the throne.

West Newton, a 6-year-old gelding, rebounded from sixth place to win by half a length at the Baltimore track. He ran 1 1/8 miles on grass in 1:52.12 in the $36,000 race. The gelding was ridden by Forest Boyce and trained by Richard Hendriks.
