Pride has a knack for bringing talented horses smoothly through their grades
with four year-old Elusive Quality (USA) gelding Scandalize posting his third
win from four starts when scoring at Canterbury on Wednesday afternoon.
A $90,000 Inglis Classic purchase from the Southern Cross Breeders draft for Carmel Size, Scandalize led throughout for Josh Parr and scooted clear at the finish to win the Benchmark 75 event over 1100 metres by a length and three-quarters as a short priced favourite.
Foaled and raised at Riversdale Farm, Scandalize is the first winner for ill-fated Dance Twig, a half-sister to Group II winner Celestial Choir, who died prematurely this year.
Another promising performer for Darley's former shuttler Elusive Quality (USA)(pictured) , Scandalize is unbeaten this preparation in winning each of three starts after resuming from an unplaced debut back in March.
