Jerardi: Her Emmynency a filly on the rise


If you encounter a 3-year-old filly late in the season with an 84-76-93 Beyer Speed Figure series, you can look at it two ways: She just ran the race of her life and can’t duplicate it, or that race is the tip-off that the best is yet to come. It turned out that it was the latter for Her Emmynency in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup last Saturday at Keeneland. She followed the 93, earned when she battled all the way in the Del Mar Oaks, with a 98 in winning the QE II under a perfect ride from Florent Geroux.
