Justwhistledixie Returns In Top Flight Handicap
She's back. After a five race win streak from October through March, and a near miss in the Acorn Stakes in June, Justwhistledixie is back and ready to start a new streak in Friday's $150,000 Top Flight Handicap (G2) at Aqueduct. The three-year-old daughter of Dixie Union built herself an impressive resume this past winter, with wins in the Bonnie Miss (G2), Davona Dale (G2), Ruthless, and True Affair Stakes. She returns to Aqueduct after taking the Ruthless and True Affair their last year.
The Top Flight will be Justwhistledixie's first start under Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott. Bill is excited to have this talented filly in his barn and thinks she will run well after her summer freshening. "This filly has been training very well. She looks great and is moving well. We are looking forward to successful four-year-old campaign with her."
Justwhistledixie has five wins from eight career starts. She has hit the board in every race of her career, and earned over $397,000.
She drew the outside post in the nine horse field and will be piloted by Jose Lezcano for the first time. Post time for the Top Flight is 3:38 ET.
