Petits Filous Wins Gr3 Quezette Stakes
At Caulfield in Melbourne, multiple US Gr1-winning sprinter & Darley shuttler Street Boss (Street Cry-Blushing Ogygian, by Ogygian) added a Group success when exciting 3YO filly Petits Filous (Street Boss-Excellent Lady, by Exceed and Excel) scored by 1.25-lengths for trainer Ciaron Maher in the $150,000 Gr3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow 3YO fillies Jalan Jalan (Foreplay-Impinge, by Generous) & Miss Gunpowder (Pendragon-Forever Rafter, by Delineator). Maher said the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on 31 October was an option for Petits Filous. "Maybe a race like the Coolmore after a little let-up might be an option for her." He added: "After looking at her today, each start she is learning a little bit and she is a keen little racehorse...we will just keep her to the sprint trips." This was the first stakes victory for Petits Filous who took her record to 3 wins from 3 starts for $196,000 earnings. Petits Filous, who is out of a half sister to Gr1 winner La Bella Dama was purchased by Maher for $65,000 at the 2014 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale from the draft of Emirates Park.
