Chester, PA --- Delightfulmemphisn, who had shown a great deal of ability both in her native Australasia and in her American debut, put it all together in her second stateside start, powering off to an effortless 1:51.2 victory in the $14,500 distaff featured pace at Harrah’s Philadelphia on Friday afternoon (July 27).

The victorious daughter of Bettor's Delight gained second-over under the guidance of Brett Miller -- normally a pretty good racing spot, although in the recent hot and muggy weather and the corresponding importance of forward race placement, only one of the previous 16 winners here had been able to win off of cover. But Delightfulmemphisn had no such travel difficulty, tipping wide early on the far turn and then just powering home, her own last half :54.4 with Miller sitting chilly behind the powerful mare. They defeated Brazuca, who rallied from the pocket, by 1-1/4 lengths, with pacesetter Valuable Art third.

Delightfulmemphisn had recorded 11 wins and 17 seconds in just 36 Down Under starts, and in her U.S. debut she closed from seventh to be third at The Meadowlands, with her individual last quarter of :25.1.

She won easily Friday for trainer Nifty Norman and the Enzed Racing Stable Inc., and the earner of $233,938 looks like she can go with a tougher cast of competition quite well right now.
