Inside Information S. Recap
Aubby K proved some time off can make a difference. The 4-year-old Street Sense filly won the Inside Information Stakes (gr. II) at Gulfstream Park March 17 in her first start since August for owner/breeder James C. Spence, scoring by three lengths.
Aubby K, who had run eighth that August afternoon in the Test Stakes (gr. I) at Saratoga, improved her record to 3-0-1 from seven starts. She has earned $213,463.
“She was outstanding as a 2-year-old,” said Spence about Aubby K, who began her career with a 151/2-length score at Belmont Park.
Aubby K opened her 3-year-old season with a 93/4-length victory at Gulfstream Park. She then ran third in the TVG Acorn Stakes (gr. I) and fourth in the Delaware Oaks (gr. II).
Spence, who lives in Terre Haute, Ind., raced Aubby K’s graded stakes-winning dam, Lilly Capote. At 2 Lilly Capote won the Golden Rod Stakes (gr. III) and the Indian Summer Stakes (by 10 lengths) and ran fifth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I). As a 3-year-old, she was victorious in the Magnolia Stakes and the Miss Preakness Stakes and was second in the Honeybee Stakes (gr. III).
Lilly Capote produced three stakes-placed runners before Aubby K. Her first, America’s Storm (by Storm Cat), sold at the 2000 Keeneland September yearling sale for $3.6 million. American Storm placed in two stakes.
Lilly Capote’s two other stakes-placed runners, the full brothers Mythical Pegasus and Flying Pegasus (by Fusaichi Pegasus), each placed in a running of the Futurity Stakes (gr. II).
Lilly Capote, who is out of grade III winner London Lil, is a half sister to five-time stakes winner Bubba Dulyah and to multiple stakes producer Lil’s Gate. By Gate Dancer, Lil’s Gate is the dam of stakes winners Dream Lady and Zeta. By Old Trieste, Dream Lady produced two stakes winners including grade III winner Major Gain.
Lilly Capote died shortly after delivering a Northern Afleet colt for Spence in April 2012.
Street Sense has sired eight stakes winners including 2013 added-money winners Unlimited Budget (gr. III) and Vitameta. Street Sense stands at Darley Japan Stallion Complex. He stood at Darley near Lexington when Aubby K was conceived.—D.S.
