BALTIMORE (AP) — A horse bred by Queen Elizabeth II has won a race at Pimlico two days after the British monarch died following seven decades on the throne.

West Newton, a 6-year-old gelding, rallied from sixth place to win by a half-length Saturday at the track in Baltimore. He ran 1 1/8 miles on turf in 1:52.12 in the $36,000 race. The gelding was ridden by Forest Boyce and trained by Richard Hendriks. West Newton’s mare, called Queen’s Prize, also was bred by the queen.

Queen Elizabeth II died Thursday at age 96.
