Fiftyshadesofgold Brings Unbeaten Record into Adirondack

Fiftyshadesofgold brings an unbeaten record into the Adirondack, having posted a 10-length win against Texas-breds in May at Lone Star Park and dusting open company by eight lengths in the Debutante Stakes on June 22 at Churchill Downs.

 

"She's very fast," said trainer Bret 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."

 

Corey Lanerie will ride Fiftyshadesofgold, the 7-5 morning-line favorite, from post 2.

 

Also entering the Adirondack off a win at Churchill is Untapable, a one-length debut winner on June 20. Rosie Napravnik, aboard Untapable for her maiden score, has the assignment once again in the Adirondack.

 

Trained by Asmussen for Winchell Thoroughbreds, Untapable was installed as the 3-1 second choice and drew post 1.

 

The Adirondack field also drew Thank You Marylou, Who's In Town, Designer Legs, Charmed Hour, and Hop the Six.

I see Untapable has been scratched.
Heart-warming story behind Thank You Marylou--would be happy to see her win. Love Birdstone anyway...
All of these filly's with the exception of Hop The Six come in with an unbeaten record. Should be a good race.
Betting on Charmed Hour
