Gainesway grad My Miss Aurelia wins G1 Frizette


Saturday, October 08, 2011 |
Two-year-old My Miss Aurelia continues showing the promise that prompted a $550,000 winning bid for her at the 2010 Keeneland yearling sale, rolling to her third win in as many starts with a powerful 5 1/2-length tour de force in the $300,000 Frizette S. (G1) Oct. 8 at Belmont Park.

The bay filly was consigned by Gainesway to the Keeneland sale, where she brought the winning bid from George Bolton, who co-owns the filly with Stonestreet Stables.

My Miss Aurelia set a fast pace of :22.64 for the quarter and :46.02 for the half mile, but still had plenty left to draw off from her competition. She poured it on in the stretch to win going away in 1:35.22 for the mile and earning a 96 Beyer Speed Figure, the fastest number at a mile of 2011 for a 2-year-old of either sex.

"She actually would have gone faster if I let her; I was just trying to get her comfortable at a high cruising speed, knowing what her abilities are and what she can do when you ask her to go," said winning jockey Corey Nakatani. "You’re basically just harnessing her energy and her power until the stretch and then you let her level out and do what she’s got to do to win the race.”

My Miss Aurelia won at first asking on July 22 at Saratoga, then wheeled back on Aug. 14 to win the Grade 2 Adirondack S. over the same oval. She has now earned an even $300,000.

The winner is out of My Miss Storm Cat, who won five of seven lifetime outings, including the Desert Stormer H. Her first foal is the stakes-placed 3-year-old Albergatti.

The victory earned My Miss Aurelia an automatic berth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1), where she is likely to be the favorite Nov. 4 at Churchill Downs.
