Lady of Fifty Training Well for Santa Maria

Joe Talamo rides Lady of Fifty for only the second time in next Saturday’s Grade II Santa Maria Stakes for older fillies and mares at 1 1/16 miles, but the 23-year-old jockey is optimistic that the gray After Market filly trained and owned in part by Jerry Hollendorfer is ready for another solid effort on dirt.

“She’s been training really well,” Talamo said of Lady of Fifty, who finished last under Talamo in her lone grass race, the one-mile China Doll at Santa Anita last March.

“Actually, I worked her yesterday,” Talamo continued. “She went three quarters in (one) 12 and change, so she ought to be tough in there.”

Lady of Fifty’s official time on Betfair Hollywood Park’s Cushion Track was a bullet 1:12.60, fastest by more than a full second of 11 drills at the distance. The next-best time was 1:13.60 recorded by the John Sadler-trained He Be Fire N Ice.

“It was hard to say how she was based on my one ride on the turf with her, but in the Bayakoa and the Palm Springs before that (both victories), I thought she ran real well,” Talamo said. “If she runs her race, she’ll be tough.”
