Fall has arrived and it will be a big season for Bradley Thoroughbreds and Co-Owners! With a line up of Stakes races that include the (G1) Queen Elizabeth Invitiational at Keeneland, (G3) Miss Grillo Stakes at Belmont, (G3) Jessamine Stakes at Keeneland, (G3) Long Island Stakes at Aqueduct, capped off with a possible start in the (G1) Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf Race at Santa Anita.
Watsdachances and Dayatthespa are exiting big wins at Saratoga this summer and will be pointing for the (G3) Miss Grillo Stakes and (G1) Queen Elizabeth Invitational respectively. Dayatthespa remains undefeated in 2012 with four wins, all in Stakes races and deserves an opportunity to compete against the best 3 year old turf fillies in the country. After her win in the Riskaverse Stakes at Saratoga on August 31st she was rewarded with a 91 Beyer Speed Figure and 6 1/4 on the Ragozin Sheets. She has put in two very solid works since her win and is ready to ship to Keeneland.
Watsdachances made her U.S. debut on August 29th after being privately purchased by BT and put into a racing partnership. She won the P.G. Johnson in dramatic fashion, flying at the end just to get up in time. The $150,000 (G3) Miss Grillo on October 7th or the (G3) Jessamine Stakes at Keeneland on October 11th will most likely be her next stop which is a “win and you’re in” race for the (G1) Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf. This has been the main goal for this filly since importing her from Ireland.
Kya One (FR) was imported by BT for Mackie Racing, LLC in July and immediately fit in to trainer Chad Brown’s program. She made her first start in the one-turn mile (G3) Noble Damsel Stakes on September 15th where she finished 5th. She had just started rolling when the wire came up and she finished very strongly. The added distance of the 1 1/2 Long Island Stakes on November 10th will be beneficial.
Premier Steps is a new import from Europe to watch. The two-year-old filly arrived on September 19th and settled well into Chad Brown’s barn. She is nominated to the (G3) Miss Grillo but will most likely hold off another month before making her U.S. debut. She is already multiple Group 3 placed in England and France and has shown Chad she is a class act!
