Stable Change For US Champion Filly
The champion US filly of 2011, My Miss Aurelia (Smart Strike-My Miss Storm Cat, by Sea of Secrets), has been transferred to the Saratoga stable of leading trainer Todd Pletcher, reports drf.com. The Stonestreet Stable & George Bolton-owned 4YO was previously trained by Steve Asmussen. During her 3YO season My Miss Aurelia won the Gr1 Cotillion Stakes & was runner-up in the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic but hasn't been seen since March when finishing third in the Gr3 Azeri Stakes at Oaklawn. Pletcher explained no firm plans were in place for the talented daughter of Smart Strike. "We'll gallop her for a week and see where she is and breeze her and go from there. We have no concrete objective other than to run her when we feel like she's doing well."
