Northern Afleet is also the sire of 2005 Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes winner Afleet Alex. S Evening Jewel is trained by James M. Cassidy and owned by the Braly Family Trust.

Said to have a "nice front running fashion," on April 3, 2010 she proved herself worthy of that years Kentucky Oaks when she took the Grade I Ashland Stakes. The Ashland Stakes was the third win in the 10 starts of Evening Jewel's career, and it improved her earnings to $410,600. She also has four seconds.

2010 Kentucky Oaks

The Kentucky Oaks, run on April 30th (the day before the Kentucky Derby), Evening Jewel faced heavily favored Blind Luck. Beaten by a nose by Blind Luck earlier this year, she has run with top male contenders, finishing second to the eventual Robert B. Lewis Stakes winner. In the Ashland Stakes she beat Beautician who had outrun Blind Luck in the 2009 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Evening Jewel drew post 11 for the Kentucky Oaks, and was installed at 10-to-1 odds in the morning line and ridden by regular jockey Kent Desormeaux.

In the Kentucky Oaks, after leading for most of the way, Blind Luck again nipped Evening Jewel by a nose. It was considered a determined effort. If Evening Jewel had won the race, it would have been her jockey's (Kent Desormeaux) second victory of the day. He and Unrivaled Belle delivered a loss to Rachel Alexandra, 2009 Horse of the Year, by a neck.

On May 31, 2010, Evening Jewel took the Honeymoon Handicap in her turf debut.
