Anne's Beauty, a 2-year-old daughter of
Artie Schiller, became the first stakes winner for her sire with a
game victory in the $150,000 Glorious Song S. Nov. 14 at Woodbine.
The bay filly took the seven furlong race over the Polytrack by a
head after a stretch-long duel.
For Artie Schiller, Anne's Beauty was
one of two winners on the day for the Paul's Mill freshman sire.
Earlier in the day at Aqueduct, the filly Parting Words won a 1 1/16
mile maiden turf race by a length despite a troubled start. The
2-year-old bay was bred in Kentucky by Hargus and Sandra Sexton
and is owned by Lael Stables. Artie Schiller now has nine winners to
his credit and has sired winners on all three track surfaces.
Anne's Beauty, who gave her sire his first victory as a stallion when she broke her maiden in her most
recent start by 2 1/4 lengths Aug. 27, also at Woodbine, engaged the
pacesetter and favorite Nina's Fever at the top of the stretch, and
after a protracted duel to complete the seven furlongs in 1:22.64.
Bred in Kentucky by Richard Forbush and
Doug Oliver, Anne's Beauty is now 2-0-1 in three starts. She has
earned $127,651 for owner Robert Smithen, who purchased the bay filly
at the 2009 Keeneland September yearling sale from the Forbush Farm
