AURELIA’S BELLE (f, 2, Lemon Drop Kid--Aurelia, by Danzig)
entered this a talking horse, firing a five-furlong bullet from the gate in 1:00 flat here that the Keeneland clockers said, “was in hand, looks ready for a good effort.” Backed down to 8-5 at the off, the bay was content to track from midpack while wide as the nearly white Kala Ryan (Dunkirk) showed the way. The chalk loomed up ominously while well out into the center of the track, and reeled in the game pacesetter despite never switching leads to earn her diploma by a head in 1:11.04. The $170,000 KEESEP yearling is a granddaughter of GSW Aishah (Alydar), who also produced Grade I winner Aldiza (Storm Cat). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0. O-James F Miller. B-Alexander-Groves-Matz (Ky). T-Wayne Catalano.
