A 10-length winner of her Belmont unveiling as the 2-5 pick May 20, Miss Alacrity preserved her unbeaten record with a first stakes triumph in her first try on grass in the Colleen S. at Monmouth Park on August 1.
Once again the crowd’s pick but at slightly higher odds, the chestnut battled with two rivals to her inside through a snappy first quarter in :21.20. She stuck her neck in front with three furlongs remaining and galloped into the home straight with a clear lead. A touch green down the lane, Miss Alacrity won fairly easily, with Sail By making up some late ground to take place honors.
Miss Alacrity was sold by Legacy Bloodstock at the 2019 Keeneland November auction for breeder Milfer Farm. She races in the colors of C J Thoroughbreds and has already earned over $100,000.
“This is a very nice filly. Wesley Ward had her ready. She was a little green but she is very talented. I can feel it. I was aggressive early because that’s how she likes to run but I did not have to make the lead. I stayed close to [Kodama] because I know that filly has a lot of speed and I wanted to make sure she didn’t get too far away. But this filly was too good. She can hook horses and still have plenty left. You can tell she’s a good one.”
