Meet Chad Brown: Binders full of fillies?

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney may have binders full of women, but trainer Chad Brown boasts what would constitute a binder full of fast fillies.

Leading the world-class list is the indomitable Awesome Feather, who is pointing to the Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic. The daughter of Awesome of Course is a perfect ’10’ – undefeated in 10 starts and coming off an 11-length romp in the Nasty Storm Stakes. The Ladies’ Classic is shaping up to be the centerpiece of this year’s event with Royal Delta, My Miss Aurelia, Questing and Grace Hall.

Brown’s bevy of lawn-loving ladies is led by the classy French-bred Zagora, a Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf hopeful. The daughter of Green Tune ran a superb second to Nahrain in the Flower Bowl Invitational, and will likely meet up with that rival again at Santa Anita.

Dayatthespa is a take-charge lady who likes the lead – all the way to the finish, as she did so expertly in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes at Keeneland. The New York-bred daughter of City Zip, who is unbeaten in five stakes races this year, will head to the Matriarch at Hollywood Park.

Irish-bred Watsdachances is a talented, lightly-raced filly who hasn’t seen the high level of publicity as her stablemates, but is a top contender for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. She’s 3 for 4 and beat a decent field in the Miss Grillo Stakes.

Brown is hoping Flashy Gal, a daughter of Smart Strike who broke her maiden at Belmont Park in her second start, can join the cast of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.

These are just a few of Brown’s blossoming filly stars.

    that, allow me say to you what exactly did diveler the results. Your text is actually extremely engaging and this is probably the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can certainly notice the jumps in reasoning you make, I am not certain of how you appear to connect your details which inturn help to make the actual conclusion. For the moment I shall subscribe to your point however trust in the near future you actually connect your facts better.

    While Calvin’s actions taword Castellano in the winner’s circle certainly were unfortunate, he had good reason to be livid, but not nearly as much as Martin Garcia did. I happened to be watching Castellano’s horse from the start. Garcia and his horse nearly went down thanks to Castellano’s move at the top of the stretch. His severe stumble, in turn, adversely impacted Calvin’s horse, so I can’t blame Calvin for reacting as vehemently as he did. It’s so dangerous out there at these speeds. Garcia’s ability to literally save his horse as it stumbled badly flinging him forward, well out of the saddle, onto its neck and nearly to the ground yet pull him back up from the edge of disaster and continue galloping on was heroic, to say the least.As for the Life at Ten fiasco, well, I’ve seen too many sport horses over the years tie up (show the effects of sudden and severe dehydration called azoturia) not to see that Life at Ten was clearly showing the same symptoms. Hello? Lasix is a diuretic, folks. What do you think the effects of that might be on the circulatory system? For the on-site vets not have seen her stiffness as an indication that her muscles likely were seizing up from lack of blood flow due to dehydration is beyond my comprehension. Outrageous. It was an unmitigated horse welfare disaster and the responsibility for that ultimately is on their heads. I’m still a racing fan, but I’m a horse fan fist. The buck should have stopped with Pletcher from the minute she arrived in the paddock. If he wasn’t willing to make the call then the experts the track vets on site should have stepped up. Period. If those decisions remain driven by the money, the owners, the track management, and their collective greed and not the welfare of the horse first and foremost as the key to ensuring the integrity of the sport for their protection and that of the betting public who put their money based on its integrity, then get ready for serious government intervention to start regulating this sport like you’ve never seen before. Police yourself, horse racing, or be forewarned.
