WORTH WAITING CAPTURES APHRODITE STAKES L.

Off the mark at Redcar on 29th May before defying a penalty in a novice contest at Windsor 25th June, Worth Waiting (BATED BREATH) relished the extra two furlongs here to maintain her progressive profile.

Settled off the honest tempo throughout the early stages, the bay stayed on powerfully up the rising ground to overwhelm Highgarden in the final 100 yards. The dam is out of the dual listed scorer Contare (Shirley Heights), whose Gr.1 Prix Royal-Oak-winning daughter Montare (Montjeu) is in turn the dam of the Gr.1 British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes winner Journey (Dubawi). Salutare's as-yet unraced two-year-old colt by Iffraaj is named Harryjoejoe, while she also has a filly foal by Al Kazeem.
