My Miss Aurelia's Next Start Undecided

My Miss Aurelia and jockey Julien Leparoux win the Mandys Gold at Saratoga Race Course

Trainer Steve Asmussen expressed satisfaction with My Miss Aurelia’s breeze on Sunday but said he’d like to give last year’s Champion Two-Year-Old Filly more time between her win in the Mandy’s Gold on August 8 and her next start, making her doubtful for the Grade 1 Test on August 25.

 

On Sunday, the 3-year-old daughter of Smart Strike breezed five furlongs on the training track in 1:02.99.

 

“With the way the first race went, [we want] a couple of works before we make a decision [on her next race],” said Asmussen. “She ran impressively [in the Mandy’s Gold], but she didn’t go back to her right lead. I’m extremely pleased with how she went this morning.”

 

My Miss Aurelia, who races for Stonestreet Stables and George Bolton, is unbeaten in five starts. The Mandy’s Gold was her first start since defeating Grace Hall in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies last November.

 

Stonestreet’s Teen Pauline, who breezed six furlongs in 1:12.85 on the main track on Sunday, is under consideration for the Grade 1 Spinaway on September 2. The 2-year-old filly has made one start, winning by 4 ¾ lengths on July 25.

 

“She worked very well today,” said Asmussen. “A very impressive filly. With her work today, we asked something of her off of her maiden win, and it allows us an opportunity with the Spinaway in mind.”

 

Stonestreet also owns Grade 2 Adirondack heroine Kauai Katie and August 6 debut winner Dreaming of Julia. Todd Pletcher trains both Kauai Katie and Dreaming of Julia.
