Sanders hits 2000-winner mark
Seb Sanders reached a major landmark at Wolverhampton as a runaway success on Legends gave him a 2,000th career winner.
Sanders, 42, rode his first winner at Pontefract in 1990 and recorded a July Cup victory for James Toller on Compton Place in 1997, also winning the Irish 2,000 Guineas for Toller in 2004 on Bachelor Duke.
More Classic glory for Sanders came in 2008 as he won the Oaks at Epsom on the Ralph Beckett-trained Look Here.
His most recent top-level win came on Hooray for Sir Mark Prescott in the 2010 Cheveley Park Stakes.
Not many of his winners will have scored as easily as the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Legends, who was always going well and strode clear from the two-furlong pole to get off the mark by 11 lengths at the fifth attempt in the 32Red.com Handicap.
In 2007 Sanders enjoyed a memorable battle with Jamie Spencer for the jockeys' title, with Spencer managing to force a tie in the very last race of the season at Doncaster.
