Legatissimo (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}–Yummy Mummy {GB}, by Montjeu {Ire}), the winner of last year’s G1 1000 Guineas and two other Group 1s, has been retired after suffering a setback in training, according to trainer David Wachman.

“She had a setback in the spring and the decision has been made to retire her, unfortunately,” the conditioner said. “We were lucky to have her. She’s been a wonderful filly for us. Lots of days stand out for lots of different reasons, some good and some bad. I’d have to say she’s the best I’ve trained. She’s been so consistent and so versatile.”

Carrying the silks of co-owner Michael Tabor, Legatissimo won one of three juvenile outings. She took Gowran Park’s Listed Victor McCalmont Memorial S. in her second start of the year last year before springing a mild upset in the Guineas. A short-head second to Qualify (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) in the G1 Investec Oaks and to Diamondsandrubies (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) in the G1 Pretty Polly S., the bay rebounded to take the G1 Qatar Nassau S. and the G1 Coolmore Matron S. before rounding out her career with a second in the GI Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf.

Bred by Newsells Park Stud, Legatissimo was a 350,000gns yearling purchase.
