Lady Aurelia on Track for BC

Wednesday, 4th October 2017

Trainer Wesley Ward says champion US filly Lady Aurelia is in top order ahead of her next scheduled assignment in the Gr1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Del Mar on 4 November, reports Blood Horse. Crowned champion European 2YO filly in 2016, Lady Aurelia (Scat Daddy-D' Wildcat Speed, by Forest Wildcat), Lady Aurelia was last seen finishing a narrow second to Marsha in August’s Gr1 Nunthorpe Stakes at York. The dual Group One winner continued her BC preparation with a pleasing 5-furlong workout at Keeneland yesterday. "It was a really good work, just as last week was. We've got a couple more of these. We don't need to go any faster, or any slower. It was just perfect,” Ward said. “If we can keep her as sound as she is now, it will take a heck of a horse to beat her.”
