Undefeated champion My Miss Aurelia, among the favorites for the Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic (gr. I), breezed a half-mile in :48 at Santa Anita Park Oct. 28 in preparation for her Nov. 2 World Championships race.
Racing for her breeder, Stonestreet Thoroughbreds, and George Bolton, My Miss Aurelia will be seeking her seventh career win in the Ladies' Classic, in which she will be facing the likes of undefeated Awesome Feather, last year's Ladies' Classic winner and champion Royal Delta, and Class Included, who has won or placed in all 16 of her career starts.
Trained by Steve Asmussen, the daughter of Smart Strike has three grade I wins--Cotillion, Frizette, and 2011 Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies--during her six-race win streak.
"Very happy, very excited," the trainer said afterward.
