Lady Aurelia to Train at Keeneland for Next Start in Breeders’ Cup

Wesley Ward Recounts Filly’s Narrow Loss in Coolmore Nunthorpe

LEXINGTON, KY (Aug. 28, 2017) – Keeneland-based trainer Wesley Ward said this morning that European champion Lady Aurelia would return here at week’s end from England, where last Friday a hard-charging rival named Marsha nosed her out to win the Coolmore Nunthorpe (G1) at York.

Lady Aurelia, who has five wins, one second and one third in seven starts and has earned $814,945, came out of the Coolmore Nunthorpe “perfect,” Ward said.

Mike Stidham (winning trainer of Katie’s Eyes)

On whether sprinting on the turf has becoming her forte

“I think so. She’s really progressed rapidly. I thought we might be biting off a little more than we could chew today but (co-owner) Mr. (Ike) Thrash wanted to go here so here’s where we landed, and I’m glad we did.”

Roy Jackson (winning owner of Ageless)

“It's been a while since we had a winner here. It’s always great to win a race here because it is so competitive. We're thrilled. We know (Ageless) has a good kick and she just doesn’t want to go out in front. She wants to kick on from the back.  It was a nice ride from Julien (Leparoux).
