Listed success for Katara rounds off a memorable weekend for Ryan Moore
Ryan Moore completed an excellent weekend's work with a shrewd ride to land the 1m4f Pontefract Castle Filles’ Stakes with Katara.
The Sir Michael Stoute-trained four-year-old was guided up the rail by Moore to snatch victory by a head, a second victory at that level following success at Newmarket last season.
The success was a fourth in two days for Moore, who landed a treble on the final day of Royal Ascot, including his Diamond Jubilee win aboard Dream Of Dreams.
Moore told Racing TV: "Katara’s a nice filly with a good pedigree and you’d like to think there would be more to come from her in the future."
Welcome week for Burke
Clifford Lee was another jockey to enjoy a memorable Royal Ascot after riding his first winner at the meeting, and he teamed up with Karl Burke to land the second leg of a double for the trainer with Favourite Child.
Burke also sent out the winner of the 6f fillies' novice with Almohandesah under Tom Marquand.
Burke said: "We just had a sticky couple of weeks with a hell of a lot of seconds without having a winner, so to get three now in the last few days, and one at Royal Ascot, you can definitely say I’m relieved."
New track, same result
Horses for courses is a phrase that does not define Let Me Be, who picked up his seventh career win at seven different tracks.
Callum Rodriguez partnered the well-travelled five-year-old on his first Pontefract outing, with Let Me Be now having won five of his six starts this season.
