Orientate's Great Hot primed for Breeders' Cup


Monday, October 31, 2011 |
Following Great Hot's victory in the G2 Raven Run S. at Keeneland Oct. 22, trainer A.C. Avila started thinking seriously about running the 3-year-old daughter of Orientate for the Nov. 4 Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint at Churchill Downs. After a couple of scintillating works in the past few weeks, Avila entered the Brazilian bred filly in the $1 million, seven furlong contest.

The dark bay filly also has a win the $100,000 Torrey Pines S. at Del Mar in September and was third in the Grade 1 Lady's Secret S. in October. She is 4-0-2 in seven starts, earning $291,265. Owned byu Jessica Coudelaria, Great Hot broke her maiden in her home country a little over a year ago before being moved to the States and into Avila's barn.

The Sprint will be the seventh race on Friday, with a scheduled post time of 5:30 p.m. Great Hot will break from post 2.

Orientate is the sire of seven stakes winners in 2011, ranging in ages from two through five and from distances from five furlongs to 1 1/4-miles.
