Ask Forfree Delivery earned a front-running victory in the $100.000 Busanda at AQU and secured 10 qualifying points towards the G1 KYO. Breaking alertly under E. Jaramillo from stall five (Curlina was scratched from stall one), the Arindel-trained sophomore filly went to the front and led her rivals on a nine furlong joyride around the AQU main track. The Williams 9-bred filly now has 5-3-0-1 record with earnings of $136.650.
Posting fractions of :47.44, 1:11.10, and 1:35.47 before establishing a new stakes-record time of 1:48.33, Ask Forfree Delivery was never threatened and finished three and a half lengths in front of runner-up, Tell Milady. That filly just edged Upstate who was three-quarters of a length in front of Folded Wings. The top four finishers earned 10, 4, 2, and 1 KYO points, respectively, and were followed across the wire by Dance Macabre, Hollywood Harbour, Obsessed, Clumsy Jean, Name That Filly, Charlottes A Star, and Queens Park. Unfortunately, Hollywood Harbour suffered an injury after crossing the wire and had to be put down.
Congratulations to Ask Forfree Delivery and Arindel for their victory in the $100.000 Busanda at AQU.
