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 consignment.
