Ariana G won both of the New Jersey-restricted races that she entered, including the final of the Sire Stakes’ Premier Division at the Meadowlands where she took her lifetime mark of 1:51.1. The 3-year-old trotting filly used those races as a springboard to the rest of the season which saw her victorious in major stakes such as the Del Miller Memorial, Hambletonian Oaks, Simcoe, Elegantimage and Breeders Crown, while earning $1,123,690 during the course of the season.

If she never raced again, Ariana G would still have a guaranteed spot as one of the great trotting fillies of the early 21st century.
But rather than be satisfied with her place in history, the horse’s connections are hoping to watch her make more of it.
