1st Win For Filly From US$3m Dam Contrive
On the US track early this morning (Australian time), the daughter of US$3 million broodmare Contrive (Strom Cat-Jeano, by Fappiano) recorded her 1st win (at her 2nd start) when front-running 3YO filly Delightful Quality (Elusive Quality-Contrive) scored by 6.75-lengths over 6 furlongs against older rivals at Belmont Park for trainer Thomas Albertrani. Delightful Quality is a half-sister to multiple Gr1 winner Folklore (whose victories included the 2005 Gr1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies) & their dam Contrive was purchased for US$3 million by John Ferguson at the 2005 Fasig-Tipton November sale.
