Gr1 1000 Guineas Winner's 1st Foal Wins
Following a 4th placing at Kempton on debut, Elation (Cape Cross-Attraction, by Efisio) was sent off a pronounced 8/11 favourite over 7 furlongs at Lingfield and romped home by 4.5-lengths. The daughter (and 1st foal) of her Gr1 1000 Guineas-winning dam Attraction (Efisio-Flitation, by Pursuit Of Love), was bred and retained (as was her dam) by the Duke of Roxburgh and trained by Mark Johnston, according to racingpost.com. Champion 2YO of Europe, Attraction won both the Gr1 English & Gr1 Irish 1000 Guineas, retiring with 10 victories to her name, 5 of them at Gr1 level. Her 2008 foal is a Montjeu filly.
