Lady Aurelia defeated in 25-1 Cheveley Park shock By David Baxter 3:01PM 24 SEP 2016
Report: Newmarket, Saturday
Connolly's Red Mills Cheveley Park Stakes (Group 1) 6f, 2yo fillies
AMERICAN speedster Lady Aurelia was odds-on to land the Cheveley Park for Wesley Ward but she emptied late on as Brave Anna swept through to land a 25-1 shock for Aidan O'Brien.
The race was one of the few Group 1s that O'Brien did not have in his bulging trophy cabinet and Brave Anna filled in that blank when defeating stablemate Roly Poly in a head-bobbing finish.
Lady Aurelia went off like a firecracker but slowed coming out of the dip and she faded late into third.
Winning jockey Seamie Heffernan said: "The filly that made the running was top-class, but Aidan just keeps that little bit more for his runners in Group 1s."
