NEW YORK -- Delightful Quality held off Sure Route by a nose Friday in the $72,520 allowance feature for fillies and mares at Belmont Park.

Javier Castellano guided the 4-year-old trained by Tom Albertrani to her second win in seven starts. The time was 1:23.35 for the seven furlongs on the track still rated fast as showers fell. It was later downgraded to good.

Delightful Quality, the 4-5 favorite, paid $3.80, $2.50 and $2.10. Sure Route returned $3.20 and $2.10, and Geisha Girl paid $2.30 to show.
