|My Delilah, the half sister
to the Melbourne Cup winner Jezabeel, has broken her maiden status in good style in New
Zealand this afternoon.
A filly by the New
Zealand based stallion Senor Pete, My Delilah is out of Passefleur, who is already the
producer of the Flemington Cup heroine.
Although Waipa in May may be a long way from fabulous
Flemington in November, we all know a career must start somewhere, and for My Delilah her
day came today.
My Delilah didn't have it all her own way in the Anziyan
1150. She had to pull out all stops to beat the runner-up Tinkie Winkie.
Like Jezabeel, My Delilah is trained by astute New Zealand
preparer Brian Jenkins.
