Brave Raj

Breeders’ Cup Champion
Jockey: 
P. Valenzuela
Trainer: 
M. Stute
Owner: 
Dolly Green
Breeder: 
Dr. Wallace S. Karutz

Dolly Green’s Brave Raj was sent off third choice in the Juvenile Fillies with jockey Pat Valenzuela aboard for veteran trainer Mel Stute and drew off in the stretch for a commanding 5 1/2 lengths victory, her fifth consecutive tally after two wins at Del Mar and two back east in Calder’s Florida Stallion Stakes series.

Earlier that year, Stute was at Garden State Park to run Preakness hero Snow Chief in the Jersey Derby and watched Brave Raj win her debut by 7 1/2 lengths that week, soon after making a deal to buy her privately for $300,000 on behalf of longtime client Green.

Brave Raj made one more sporting start after the Breeders’ Cup that season, finishing a respectable fifth against colts in the Hollywood Futurity. She was voted Eclipse champion 2-year-old filly.
