Certify Wins UK Gr1 Fillies Mile
In the UK, former Darley shuttler Elusive Quality (Gone West-Touch Of Greatness, by Hero's Honor) added a Gr1 success when undefeated filly Certify (Elusive Quality-Please Sign In, by Doc's Leader) scored by 4.5-lengths for trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni in the £150,000 Gr1 Fillies Mile (8 furlongs) at Newmarket for 2YO fillies, over fellow fillies Roz (Teofilo-Debonnaire, by Anabaa) & Amazonas (Cape Cross-Francesca D'gorgio, by Proud Citizen). Certify is now 4-for-4 including the Gr2 May Hill Stakes at Doncaster & Gr3 Sweet Solara Stakes at Newmarket. The victory has seen her odds tumble in to make her the new ante-post favourite for England's 1000 Guineas in 2013.
