Wesley Ward, American Trainer of Royal Ascot star Lady Aurelia, greets Racing Post colleague Scott Burton at Deauville Touques race course today.
Wesley seemed relaxed & confident & is apparently very satisfied that Lady Aurelia has settled in at Deauville after the long trip across the Atlantic.The filly, daughter of Scat Daddy worked out on the grass on thursday which she really took to. There will be 4 horses, including “Tis Marvellous “, racing against the winner of the Royal Ascot Queen Mary Stakes . Italian jockey Rispoli has been riding out on Lady Aurelia in the mornings after her arrival from USA, a second journey across the Atlantic in 2 months, quite a feat. Wesley Ward is pleased with the filly’s progress. The ground get softer as the weather in Deauville showery. Jockey Frankie Dettori will be riding again for the big Gr.1 race. Anyone who was at Royal Ascot June 15th will remember the roar of the crowd and the stunning 7 furlong advance of Lady Aurelia.
