Elusive Quality Filly Makes Big Middle Move to Earn Rising Stardom


Remanded | Lauren King

Manganaro Bloodstock and David Ingordo's Remanded (Elusive Quality) entered her unveiling Sunday at Gulfstream with an upbeat worktab at Payson Park, and was given a 4-1 chance for trainer Cherie DeVaux, who had won with five of her first 23 debuters. Out-breaking only 4-5 favorite Union Maiden (Union Rags), the bay sat toward the back of the pack behind a :22.45 opening quarter before launching a sweeping move into the turn that found her three deep and vying for command after a :45.85 half. She went on with it from there, and while she grew a bit leg weary late, Remanded still maintained a 1 1/2-length advantage on second timer Royal Meghan (Uncaptured) at the line while garnering 'TDN Rising Star' honors. Union Maiden could only manage fifth after her rough start.

A $75,000 KEESEP yearling, Remanded was bought back for $190,000 at last year's OBS April sale after a :10 1/5 breeze. Her precocious dam Sleepless Dixie (Dixie Union), who was MSP as a 2-year-old, is out of GSW Dream About (Cherokee Run), making her a half to GSW Deeply Undervalued (Kitten's Joy) and SW/MGSP Sleepless Knight (War Chant). Remanded is bred on a version of the extremely potent cross that has produced three Grade I winners (Caledonia Road, Klimt and Salty) by Elusive Quality's son Quality Road out of Dixie Union mares.

A $205,000 yearling, Sleepless Dixie sold to Clarkland Farm for $210,000 at the 2017 Keeneland November sale carrying a colt by Quality Road. She produced a filly by Mastery in 2019 before being bred back to Accelerate.
