LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Good Deed capped a spectacular Saturday afternoon at Churchill Downs for jockey Shaun Bridgmohan when she stormed to a gate-to-wire victory in the feature race, the $64,418 Unbridled Sidney for fillies and mares at five furlongs on the turf.

Palazzo Babe did all the chasing under Rosie Napravnik, settling for second, 4 1/4 lengths behind the winner. Then came Formal Plan and the 2-1 favorite, Holiday for Kitten.

Good Deed, bred and owned by the Klein family of Louisville and trained by Steve Margolis, returned $7.40 as third choice after finishing in 57.37 seconds. Good Deed, a 4-year-old daughter of Broken Vow, was making her grass debut after 10 starts on dirt.

The Unbridled Sidney was run over a course rated good after heavy rain Friday. Two earlier Saturday races scheduled for the grass were transferred to the main track.

By winning five straight races, Bridgmohan took the lead atop the jockey standings with 15 wins. Bridgmohan won the sixth through ninth races before the Unbridled Sidney, which went as the 10th of 11.

Joel Rosario, who left for New York after winning the Kentucky Derby the previous Saturday, won 14 races here during the first week of the 38-day spring meet.

Sweet Cassiopeia, the morning-line favorite, was among three early scratches, leaving a field of eight fillies and mares. The 5-year-old Sweet Cassiopeia could run this coming weekend at Pimlico.

The $2 exacta (5-9) paid $26.40; the $1 trifecta (5-9-8) returned $78; and the 10-cent superfecta (5-9-8-1) was worth $24.26.

Must be hard for Marty McGee to write this article. It was just over 10 days ago that he failed to mention Shaun as a possible top 5 rider at CD for the spring meet. Just another example of Marty not doing his homework.
