Fiftyshadesofgold Breezes for Adirondack

Fiftyshadesofgold, who will make her graded stakes debut in the Grade 2 Adirondack on August 11, breezed four furlongs in 46.32 seconds on Sunday, the fastest of 66 moves at the distance.

 

A dominant winner of both a Lone Star Park maiden race and the Debutante Stakes at Churchill Downs, Fiftyshadesofgold impressed trainer Bret Calhoun with the workout, her final prior to the 6 ½-furlong Adirondack for 2-year-old fillies.

 

"She worked great," said Calhoun. "It was a little quicker than I would have liked, but it was visually impressive. She did it easily and she never took a deep breath afterward."

 

After breaking her maiden on May 24, Fiftyshadesofgold battled for the early lead in the Debutante on June 22, took over in upper stretch, and drew off to win by eight.

 

"She's very fast," said Calhoun. "What excites me the most is how she might be able to carry her speed. She has a high cruising speed and has a good mind. I was surprised she was that close to a hot pace in the Debutante, but she was able to put them away. I think everybody dreams of having a horse like that."
