2023 Frizette Stakes Just FYI shines through the gloom

For everyone’s information, Just FYI is a rising star and she shone through the gloom at Aqueduct on Saturday, staying unbeaten when making her stakes breakthrough in the 2023 Frizette Stakes.

The leap from maiden win straight into G1 company is a tough ask but Just FYI had all the right answers, and came home an impressive winner of the Frizette at Aqueduct on Saturday from Central Avenue and Life Talk, collecting a free pass into the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies in the process.

In a race run under a heavy shower over a sloppy track, the 9-2 third-choice, a cleverly-named daughter of Justify, stalked the pace of Irish Maxima until cruising into the lead at the top of the lane and swiftly taking control.

Just FYI increased her advantage all the way down the stretch, crossing the line three and three-quarter lengths clear of longshot Central Avenue, who rallied past tired horses to take the place by a half-length from second-choice Life Talk. The favored Emery lacked rally, finishing fourth.

“She has a beautiful long stride and finished off nice and strong,” said jockey Junior Alvarado. “We knew that she would appreciate stretching out.”

Bill Mott will now take the unbeaten Just FYI, who is in the same ownership as top route mare War Like Goddess, to the west coast for a race the veteran trainer has yet to win.
