2YO filly trotter Aela Jamieson named USTA District 8 HOY
« Return to News
The 2-year-old trotting filly, Aela Jamieson, by Chapter Seven of Blue Chip Farms in Wallkill, N.Y., has been named the United States Trotting Association District 8 Horse of the Year.
The award was presented to trainer Julie Miller at Sunday’s New York Sires Stakes and USTA District 8 virtual awards banquet.
“We loved her at Lexington at the sale, she was a smaller filly, but she really grew into herself,” said Miller. “I was really happy with her; she had some bumps in the beginning of the season on the half-mile tracks but you don’t give up on them and you just keep tinkering with her equipment. I was very fortunate that she started to get with the program at Vernon and Tioga. When the money was down at Yonkers, she really put her best foot forward.”
The filly took home $92,893 in earnings for owners Andy Miller Stable Inc., Dumain Haven Farm and Little E LLC.
