Fiftyshadesofgold will represent Texas in the Acorn

Email

Fiftyshadesofgold will attempt to be the first Texas-bred to win a Grade 1 race in more than a decade on Saturday, when she runs in the $750,000 Acorn at Belmont Park. She will be one of the top choices in the one-mile race for 3-year-old fillies on the strength of her win in the Grade 3 Eight Belles at Churchill Downs.
