Elate had been away for eight
months, but the way she ran in the Grade 2, $750,000 Delaware
didn’t show it.

The daughter of Medaglia d’Oro sat back early
off a slow pace and made an early move under regular jockey Jose Ortiz. Elate
easily passed the pacesetter Proper Discretion and even Mopotism and Unbridled
Mo, settled in second and third early, had no answer.

Elate was chased by Sneaky Betty and Teresa
Z, but pulled away to finish the 1 ¼-miles in 2:04 and change.
