Awesome Feather - 2012 Nasty Storm S.

Undefeated champion Awesome Feather ran her record to 10-for-10 Thursday afternoon at Belmont Park as she came off an eight-month layoff to post a dominating 11 ¼-length victory in the $85000 Nasty Storm overnight stakes. Revving up for a planned start in the Grade 1, $2 million Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic at Santa Anita on November 2, the slightly built filly was away from the gate alertly, and then settled in third as Daddy's Honor and All Due Respect ripped through an opening quarter-mile in 22.63 seconds, with the half going in 44.96. Given her cue by jockey Jeffrey Sanchez on the turn, Awesome Feather barreled past the pacesetters and swept into the stretch with a sizeable lead and opened up under a hand ride to hit the wire in a swift 1:33.47 for the mile. "Six weeks out from the Breeders' Cup, I think she needed a race, so I'm not at all upset about winning by that many and having a strong final time," said Chad Brown, who trains the 2010 juvenile filly champion for Frank Stronach. "I think she needed the race and we got the race we needed." The 1-5 favorite, Awesome Feather returned $2.60 for a $2 win bet as she added the Nasty Storm to her 5 ¾-length victory in January's Sunshine Millions Distaff, her only other start of 2012.
