My Miss Aurelia takes her undefeated record to four with a win in the $2,000,000 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies. Steve Asmussen trained the filly for the late Jess Jackson's Stonestreet Stables. Corey Nakatani was the winning rider.

The favorite, My Miss Aurelia, finished three lengths in front of Grace Hall who was another six lengths in front of third place finisher, Wemissfrankie. Longshot Self Preservation was another 1 1/4 length in fourth.

"She's extremely special," said trainer Steve Asmussen. "How proud we are that she's a homebred [for Stonestreet Stables], and that George [Bolton] bought into her as a yearling. She's been everybody's pick at every stage, and she came through today with a great race."

"Right now I'm very happy," said Tony Dutrow, trainer of second place finisher Grace Hall. "That is an extremely good filly that beat us, but we beat the rest of them. She's [My Miss Aurelia] the best two-year-old filly right now, buy maybe we'll be the best three-year-old filly next year."

My Miss Aurelia returned $6.20, $4.00, and $3.00. Grace Hall paid $4.60 and $3.20 and Wemissfrankie returned $3.60. The $2 exacta paid $24.80 and the $0.50 triple returned $25.30.
