Asmussen's Breeders' Cup Contenders Work

Trainer Steve Asmussen had six candidates for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships work Oct. 17 over Churchill Downs’ main track.

My Miss Aurelia, headed for the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I), worked five furlongs over fast footing in 1:02. She produced the fifth-fastest of 35 works at the distance. Stonestreet Stables and George Bolton’s homebred daughter of Smart Strike   covered the distance in fractional times of :12 3/5 :24 4/5, :37 and :49 3/5, and galloped out six furlongs in 1:16. My Miss Aurelia comes into the Breeders’ Cup with victories in the Frizette Stakes (gr. I) at Belmont Park and Saratoga’s grade II Adirondack Stakes.

“I’m very pleased with her breeze,” Asmussen said. “We’re obviously extremely impressed with her talent and how she’s going. We have a pretty good comfort level with the Breeders’ Cup running here. She didn’t start here, but she spent a lot of time here in the spring. She’s comfortable with the surroundings.”
