My Miss Aurelia - 2011 Frizette (G1)

My Miss Aurelia set a fast, contested pace and drew off in the stretch to register a 5 ½-length victory in the Grade 1, $300000 Frizette for 2-year-old fillies, respectively giving jockey Corey Nakatani and trainer Steve Asmussen their sixth and fourth victories on Saturday's card at Belmont Park. Nakatani became the third jockey in Belmont Park history to win six races on a single card, matching the feats achieved by Jorge Velasquez in 1981 and Ramon Dominguez on June 5 during this year's spring-summer meet. It was the 17th time a jockey has won six races on a single card on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit. In the Frizette, My Miss Aurelia rushed up from post position 1 to grab the lead from Spare Change, setting pressured fractions of 22.64 and 46.02. Nakatani took a confident look back following three-quarters in 1:10.38, and My Miss Aurelia ran away from her rivals in the stretch as runner-up Stopshoppingmaria gave vain chase in second. My Miss Aurelia completed one mile in 1:35.22, returned $6.50 for a $2 win wager as the 2-1 second choice, and earned a guaranteed berth in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf on November 4 at Churchill Downs, with the Frizette having been designated a Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win and You're In" race.
