The performance of the offspring of Taylor Made stallion Northern Afleet continue to prove that the sire, who stands for $10,000 LF, is one of the best values in Kentucky. Afleet Deceit became Northern Afleet's fourth stakes performer with a third-place effort in the $150,000 Azeri Oaklawn Park on Mar. 6.

Afleet Deceit, who was a stakes winner in 2009, is making a comeback of sorts after getting the latter half of last year off. In the Azeri, Afleet Deceit faced a strong field with several stakes winners. While she didn't get the ideal trip, being hung three wide most of the race, she was very game in defeat and will surely improve off this effort. She posted an excellent 89 Beyer Speed Figure in the race, just two points off her lifetime best.

Afleet Deceit, now four years old, has hit the board in eight of 11 lifetime starts, with earnings of $183,010. She was consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency to the 2007 Keeneland September yearling sale, where she was purchased by Bill Stiritz, in whose colors she currently races.
