Afleeting Lady victorious in G2 Falls City H.


Friday, November 23, 2012 | Afleet Alex
Afleeting Lady collected her third straight stakes win with a 2 ¼-length triumph in the Grade 2, $162,450 Falls City H. on Thanksgiving Day at Churchill Downs. The 5-year-old daughter of Afleet Alex won the Lady’s Secret S. at Monmouth in September and the Turnback The Alarm H. (G3) at Belmont Park on Oct. 27.

Afleeting Lady is the leading earner of 2012 for her sire, and is one of three stakes winners in the past week by the 10-year-old stallion. Gainesway Farm recently announced Afleet Alex's 2013 stud fee at $15,000 LFS&N.

Joyful Victory was quickest from the gate and led the field of seven fillies and mares through early fractions of :23.68 and :47.62 with Afleeting Lady tracking in second while in the clear to her outside. The winner, who carried 119 pounds, took command with three furlongs to run, shook clear in deep stretch and easily held back a late rally by recent Chilukki S. (G2) winner Brushed by a Star.

Afleeting Lady, campaigned by John Clay’s Alpha Delta Stables and Richard Santulli, ran 1 1/8 miles over a fast track in 1:51.25. Joel Rosario rode the winner for trainer Dale Romans.

“She looked comfortable the whole race and I thought she would run big, and she did. I think she’s still improving,” said Romans. “We’re going to sit down and decide whether we want to go on with her now or retire her. We’ll make a decision in the next few days.”

Afleeting Lady netted $98,704 for the win and now has won seven of 20 starts and $473,526. The 5-year-old mare is out of the Unbridled mare Oatsee and is the older half-sister of multiple Grade 1 winner Shackleford.
