Fair Grounds: Good Deed a go on turf or dirt in Pan Zareta


Good Deed always looked like a nice horse on dirt, but her ceiling seemed limited to a Grade 3 or listed-stakes-type sprinter. Then, last May at Churchill Downs, her connections tried Good Deed on turf and discovered an entirely different animal. Good Deed won the Unbridled Sidney Stakes by more than four lengths in her grass debut, and on June  7, she won an open turf-sprint allowance at Churchill by five lengths, her five-furlong time of 55.73 seconds producing a Beyer Speed Figure of 110, the highest turf-sprint figure in North America during 2013.
