She's a star despite the owner always sounding very reserved. Hope she comes to the Championships :no1:

Delicacy not certain to start in Perth Cup

Trent Orwin in Latest News 7 minutes ago
  • Delicacy won the CB Cox Stakes in effortless fashion
  • Not guaranteed to start in the Perth Cup
  • Has won 11 of 18 career starts
Horse racing action
Star WA mare Delicacy showed her class with an effortless win in the Group 2 CB Cox Stakes (2100m) at Ascot on Saturday.

Leading WA jockey William Pike bided his time with the Grant Williams-trained four-year-old mare Delicacy before making a run through the field turning for home and sweeping down the outside to run away with a soft 1.5-length victory.

It was one-way traffic in betting with Delicacy being sent around as the $1.50 favourite on the back of her narrow defeat behind stablemate Perfect Reflection in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) two weeks earlier.

Under weight for age conditions, Delicacy carried the lightest weight of 56kg and owner Bob Peters knew it was his mare’s race to lose.

“Everything was in her favour,” Peters told RWWA.
“The weight, barrier and distance.
“If she didn’t win today she obviously hadn’t come back.”

Delicacy had an ideal preparation leading towards the Kingston Town Classic and CB Cox Stakes.

She finished third at her first run back from a spell when beaten three quarters of a length by Black Heart Bart in the Group 2 Lee Steere Stakes (1400m).

Delicacy was then a strong sixth-placing after making up considerable ground to finish 3.25 lengths away from Good Project in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m).

Williams and Peters will decide whether to run Delicacy in the Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) at Ascot on January 2.

“She is not a certainty,” Peters said.
“I will look at the field and weights.
“There are probably two or three different options that I’m looking at.”

The daughter of Al Maher has won 11 of her 18 career starts and been placed a further five times for prizemoney in excess of $1.8 million.

What a ripper she is. Thought it was a good call by connections to back off and dodge the spring as a 4yo mare where so many struggle. Lets her consolidate and come back as a seasoned mare. Love to see her go on and win a good race in the autumn where she'll be even better in the wet.

As Acer reported on the other thread. She' went amiss in the race and may not race again. Watching it live I thought something went amiss with her about 5 metres from the finish. Watch the replay and she clearly dips a few strides from the post. I wonder if thats when it happened :sad:

The racing future of Delicacy is in the balance. c/racenet

Delicacy cast a plate and suffered a cut to her off hind fetlock in defeating stablemate Neverland in the Perth Cup. Owner Bob Peters told The West Australian there are other issues with the four-year-old

"She had heat in her legs on Sunday," Peters said. "The concern is the heat is still there today.

"The vet has taken x-rays of her joints and scans of her tendons.

"We should know the results tomorrow, but I am bracing for the worst. She definitely won't be running in the Australian Cup.”

Star mare Delicacy forced to retire

 Jay Rooney - January 5, 2016, 1:15 pm



Star WA mare Delicacy has been retired from racing.

Scans have confirmed Delicacy has torn tendons in both her front legs following her outstanding win in last Saturday's Perth Cup (2400m) at Ascot.

"She will be retired," owner-breeder Bob Peters said.

"She has two torn tendons. It's as bad as it gets."

Delicacy captured the imagination of the WA and Australian racing industry, winning 12 of her 19 starts and more than $2 million in prize money.

She was crowned Australia's champion three-year-old filly and WA horse of the year last season after winning the Oaks and Derby in WA and South Australia.

Damned shame.  Would have liked to have seen her take on Winx again.

Delicacy comeback on the cards
Jay Rooney
Tuesday, January 17, 2017 12:47PM


Champion mare Delicacy will launch a potential comeback to racing when she returns to work at Grant and Alana Williams’ stable today.

Owner Bob Peters said Delicacy has completed a 12 month rehabilitation program since she severely tore both front tendons.

Peters remains cautious about Delicacy’s comeback but said she will race again if she responds well to her return to training.

“I’m being very cautious because I’ve never had one come back from two tendons before,” Peters said.

“She’s galloping freely at the farm and putting on weight.

“She’s at the point where she will have some more serious work.

“If she comes though it there is a possibility she will race again. It’s not definite.”

The WA Horse of the Year was retired after 12 wins from 19 starts and more than $2.15 million in prize money.
