Awesome Feather the next great filly?

It's far too early to dub Awesome Feather the next superhorse, but after a 6-0 start and a sweep of the three-race Florida Stallion Stakes series Saturday at Calder Race Course, expectations are sky high for the Ocala filly.

The horse may get a chance to shine on a world stage in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies stakes on Nov. 5 at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. That race is the same 1 1/16-mile distance as Saturday's My Dear Girl Stakes, the final race of the Florida Stallion Stakes series.
