First-crop Excellent Art filly Artistic Jewel (2f Excellent Art-Danish Gem, by Danehill) was the star turn at Newmarket on Friday when running away with the Listed Bosra Sham Stakes.
The Ed McMahon-trained filly, who was bred by Jim McDonald, quickened clear of her rivals to score hugely impressively by three and a half lengths.
“I think she was slightly weak earlier in the season,” McMahon told www.racingpost.com. “Six furlongs gives her a bit longer to get into her stride. I think she’s improved a lot and has found her niche over six. We’ll start her over six next year and take it from there.”
