Informed Decision

Breeders’ Cup Champion
Jockey: 
J. Leparoux
Trainer: 
J. Sheppard
Owner: 
Augustin Stables (George Strawbridge Jr. )
Breeder: 
C. Kidder & N. Cole

Augustin Stable owner George Strawbridge, Jr. and trainer Jonathan Sheppard have been a highly successful team for nearly four decades, most of the good ones bred by Strawbridge as well, but 4-year-old filly Informed Decision was a $320,000 2-year-old purchase that proved a bargain, drawing off to a 1 1/4 lengths victory in the Filly & Mare Sprint over defending winner Ventura second.

A roan/gray daughter of 0f 2001 Kentucky Derby winner Monarchos, Informed Decision came along at the right time as she ran well on dirt tracks, but excelled on synthetic surfaces such as Arlington Park, Keeneland, Presque Isle and Santa Anita at the time. She posted 10 of her 14 career victories in 22 starts on synthetic tracks. She was voted Eclipse champion female sprinter.
