Ouellette, who has a reputation for making speed with the best of them, worked out very sensible fractions for the front-stepping daughter of Royal Mattjesty-Michelles Destiny in the $60,000 affair and she took full advantage of the opportunity.
The three-year-old led her female foes through panels of :28.4 and :58.1 before turning on the jets and sprinting to the three-quarter pole in 1:26. After that :27.4 fraction was thrown down she used a :28.3 final frame to seal in a career-best clocking of 1:54.3. Kims Quest was three lengths better than runner-up The Mistress. Third prize went to Allamerican Damsel.
Mick Grant trains the three-year-old for 1187422 Ontario Inc (William MacQuarrie) of Gloucester, ON. The filly put together a 1-2-3 in eight starts last season, and tonight’s victory gives improved her 2010 record to 1-1-0 in two trips postward. The $30,000 paycheque lifted her lifetime earnings to $69,869.
