In the hands of Masayoshi Ebina, Mrialite pulled away from the rest at around 200 meters from home and denied challenge by Nuovo Record and Touching Speech to win the grade one 2,200-meter Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Kyoto Race Course on Sunday. The 4-year-old dark bay filly won it by a neck from Nuovo Record in 2 minutes 14.90 on relatively soft ground. Another nose back, Touching Speech got third with another 1/2-length further back Rouge Buck fourth.
Bred by Northern Farm, Marialite has now won five of her 13 races for trainer T. Kubota and owner Carrot Farm. Her career earnings improved more than 175 million jp yen.
