+QUIVERY (f, 2, Violence–Passion du Coeur, by Distorted Humor) was steadied at the tail of the field after an adequate break in this unveiling. Easing into contention approaching the quarter-mile marker, the 9-4 second choice was shaken up to go second entering the final eighth and kept on strongly under whipless rousting in the closing stages to deny Arabian Gift (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) by 3/4 of a length nearing the line. The bay, a first European winner for her freshman sire (by Medaglia d’Oro) and kin to a yearling colt by Union Rags, is the fourth scorer from as many foals to race out of a winning daughter of the stakes-winning Arianna’s Passion (Unbridled’s Song), whose leading performer is MSW GII Distaff H. and GII Bed o’ Roses H. placegetter Distorted Passion (Distorted Humor), herself the dam of MGSW GI Just a Game S. third Mrs McDougal (Medaglia d’Oro). Arianna’s Passion is also a full-sister to MGISP GII Inside Information S. victress Warbling. Sales history: $30,000 Ylg ’16 OBSAUG; $360,000 2yo ’17 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $4,959.
