Golden Mystery Returns to Wolfson Barn

Trainer Marty Wolfson sent out Farnsworth Stables LLC’s 7-year-old mare Golden Mystery to win the $150,000 Hurricane Bertie Stakes (G3) by 3 ½ lengths going 6 ½ furlongs last out at Gulfstream Park on Feb. 10 and late the next afternoon the daughter of Awesome Again was sold at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Winter Mixed sale for $625,000 to Regis Farms.

Wolfson had expressed his hope that the new owners would send Golden Mystery back to his barn at Calder to continue her racing career while in such top form. He got his wish when she was returned a few days later, hitting the work tab Sunday morning with a half-mile in 49 4/5.

“She got back a few days after the sales,” said Wolfson. “She only missed training for about five days which is how much time I gave her after the Sunshine Millions before the Hurricane Bertie. She’ll run in the Inside Information and the new owners have talked about the Humana Distaff at Churchill, although nothing beyond that. Both of those races are at seven-eighths, which she loves.”

The $150,000 Inside Information Stakes (G2) will be run here on Sunday March 17 and the $300,000 Humana Distaff (G1) at Churchill Downs to be run on Kentucky Derby Day May 4, both at seven furlongs, also the distance of the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (G1) at Santa Anita on Nov. 2.

Meanwhile, Wolfson is set to send out Silverton Hill LLC’s Swagger Jack in next Saturday’s $300,000 Gulfstream Park Handicap (G2) going one mile. The 5-year-old son of Smart Strike just missed last out when second by a half-length behind Fort Loudon in the $150,000 Gulfstream Sprint Championship (G2) going seven furlongs on Feb. 9 after two allowance victories going one mile over the track.

Wolfson said before the Sprint Championship that he thought Swagger Jack would prefer a mile to seven furlongs. Swagger Jack will get his final tune-up for Saturday’s race with a Monday morning breeze at Calder.
