Augustin Stable’s Delight earned a berth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) with a powerful victory in Friday’s $320,463 Jessamine Stakes (G2) at Keeneland. The 2-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Mendelssohn took the lead at the start and never looked back, drawing away in the stretch to a five-length victory. It’s her first stakes win for trainer Jonathan Thomas, giving her a 4-2-0-2 career record with earnings of $211,905. The two-time OBS graduate was sold by Stuart Morris, Agent, at the 2021 October Selected Yearling Sale and then purchased for $400,000 out of the Paul Sharp consignment at the 2022 March Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. watch her under tack video    March Sale walking video   October Yearling Sale walking video
