My Miss Aurelia Bests Questing in thrilling stretch duel in GI Cotillion Stakes – Results and Replay

My Miss Aurelia (left) and Questing (right) throwing down big time on the Parx Main today in the $1,000,000 Cotillion Stakes

It looked for all the world like today’s $1,000,000, GI Cotillion Stakes just might simply be a match race in disguise as My Miss Aurelia and Questing put on quite the 2-horse duel down the Parx stretch with the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Fillies Juvenile winner in My Miss Aurelia  topping her foe by just a “Head” at the line of this GI, 1 1/16 mile dust-up.

Full Results

Dixie Strike finished 3rd back 6 1/4 lengths with Moment in Dixie trailing this 4-horse field at the line, but don’t feel sorry for these two as they respectively took home $115,000 and $67,000 each. Makes you wonder where all the other top 3yo fillies were today!
