Unbeaten champion My Miss Aurelia, who began her career with
a pair of victories at Saratoga Race Course, makes her 2012 debut in
Wednesday’s $100,000 Mandy’s Gold overnight stakes for 3-year-old
fillies going 6 ½ furlongs.
Unraced since wrapping up the 2-year-old filly title with a
front-running, three-length victory in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile
Fillies in November, My Miss Aurelia missed the early part of 2012 with a minor
shin injury and returned to the worktab in May. Most recently, the Smart Strike
filly breezed six furlongs in 1:13.03 on July 29 over the Oklahoma training track.
My Miss Aurelia, owned by George Bolton and Stonestreet Stable, broke
her maiden at the Spa on July 22 and next annexed the Grade 2 Adirondack on
August 14, followed by the Grade 1 Frizette on October 8 at Belmont Park
for trainer Steve Assmussen.
Julien Leparoux will ride My Miss Aurelia in Wednesday’s race,
