Elusive Quality Adds Singapore Gr3
At Kranji in Singapore overnight, former Darley shuttler Elusive Quality (Gone West-Touch Of Greatness, by Hero's Honor) added a Singapore group success when ultra-consistent Australian-bred 5YO gelding Mr Big (Elusive Quality-Basmaat, by Danehill) scored a 1.25-lengths victory for trainer Michael Freedman in the S$200,000 Gr3 Singapore Jumbo Jet Trophy (140m) for 4YOs+, over 6YO gelding What Now (State City-Classic Look, by Grosvenor) & 6YO entire Nandowra (Savabeel-Fabaz, by O'Reilly). Mr Big (a $21,000 yearling consigned by Yarraman Park as agent at the 2010 Magic Millions Summer Sale) took his record to 11 wins (also including the Listed Malaysian Magic Millions Classic, 2012's Gr3 Garden City Classic, Gr3 Woodlands Handicap & Gr3 Kranji Sprint, plus 2011's Gr3 Magic Millions Juvenile Championship & Gr2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe) & 11 placings (including the Gr1 Lion City Cup – twice, & Gr1 Krisflyer International Sprint) from 25 starts.
