Attraction: her first produce Elation scored in good style at Lingfield


First foal out of Attraction is a winner

THE first foal out of 2004 1,000 Guineas winner Attraction, named Elation, broke her duck in Lingfield's fillies' maiden on the all-weather on Wednesday.

The juvenile filly is by Cape Cross and was fourth on her Kempton debut over 6f, but stepped up on that effort to score in the 7f contest in comprehensive fashion at odds of 8-11.

Elation broke well, with Joe Fanning quickly bagging the rail and successfully making all. After turning for home, Elation was able to power clear of her rivals, crossing the line four and a half lengths in front of her nearest challenger Freddie's Girl.

Like Attraction, Elation was homebred by their owner the Duke of Roxburghe, and is also trained by Mark Johnston.

The two fillies have been campaigned very differently, though, as Attraction made her debut in April and her juvenile season ended with victory in the Cherry Hinton Stakes in July, whereas Elation did not see a racecourse until the last week in November.

Attraction retired to stud following her four-year-old season as the winner of ten races including the English and Irish 1,000 Guineas, Coronation Stakes, Matron Stakes and Sun Chariot Stakes.

The daughter of Efisio has a yearling filly by Montjeu named Devastation and a colt foal by Pivotal, while her dam, Flirtation, has a yearling filly by Motivator to run for her next year.
