Delaware: Gilded Gold tough


Gilded Gold, an easy winner of her last two starts in Kentucky, makes her stakes debut in the $50,000 Pollys Jet, a six-furlong stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Delaware Park.

Trained by Tom Amoss, Gilded Gold has earned back-to-back Beyer Speed Figures of 95 and 92 while winning her maiden and a first-level allowance at Churchill Downs.

Her chief competition in a field of six appears to be Fall Fashion. A three-time winner, including a minor stakes at Gulfstream Park in April, Fall Fashion will be looking to rebound from a dull fourth-place finish in her last start on July 12. Trainer Graham Motion said he suspects Fall Fashion disliked the sloppy track and expects improvement if the track is fast Saturday.
