Trainer Marty Wolfson confirms that Regis Farms’ 7-year-old mare
Golden Mystery is set to make her first start for her new owners in
Sunday’s $150,000 Inside Information Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park
after being purchased for $625,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Winter
Mixed sales on Feb. 11.
Wolfson saddled Golden Mystery to an impressive 3 ½ lengths victory
in the $150,000 Hurricane Bertie Stakes (G3) at Gulfstream the day
before the Kentucky sale. She was then shipped to Kentucky for the
auction and was back in Wolfson’s barn at Calder by the end of that
“I had hoped they (Regis Farm) would send her back to me,” said
Wolfson Saturday. “She’s just doing so well this winter. She’s in the
best form of her career. She worked good (Saturday morning, a half-mile
in 48 1/5, second fastest of 75 horses timed at the distance).
“She only missed training for about five days, which is as long as
she would have had off anyhow after a race even without going through
the sale. I think seven-eighths is probably her best distance.
“Actually I could enter up to four in there (Inside Information). If
one of the others hits the board in a Graded stakes it could possibly
double their value.” Wolfson has five fillies and mares nominated to
race – Thoroughbred Futures Racing’s 5-year-old Nakano, Chasing Tails
Stable’s’ 4-year-old Starship Truffles, Farnsworth Stables’ 5-year-old
Spectacular Sky and Silverton Hill LLC’s 5-year-old Bahia Beach.
Nakano finished third in the Hurricane Bertie. Starship Truffles has
won her last five starts, the last three here racing in
starter/allowance and optional/allowance races. Spectacular Sky won the
Manatee Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs on Feb. 9 in her first start since
finishing sixth in the Chilukki Stakes (G2) at Churchill Downs on Nov.
