Worthington, who put up one of the year&rsquo;s best Beyer Speed Figures for a 2-year-old in his last start, will make both his stakes and turf debut Saturday in the $50,000 Minstrel at Louisiana Downs.\r\nThe five-furlong race will share a card with the $50,000 Princess, a turf sprint for 2-year-old fillies that drew a field of 10.\r\nWorthington earned a Beyer of 83 when he won his maiden by seven lengths June 9 at Lone Star Park. The number is the fifth best among 2-year-olds at this point, and it was earned in a $20,000 maiden claiming sprint. The win came one start after Worthington, a Texas-bred gelding by Western Gambler, missed by a neck in a $25,000 maiden claimer May 15. \r\n&ldquo;The horse ended up in the maiden claiming races because out of the group we had out there, he was just a cut below them at that time,&rdquo; said Bret Calhoun, who trains Worthington. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m not so sure he&rsquo;s a cut below them now. But you&rsquo;ve got to realize what came out of that group. There were a lot of good 2-year-olds in that group. I think he&rsquo;s moved forward a bunch. I know his second start he moved way forward.&rdquo; \r\nCalhoun&rsquo;s current crop of 2-year-olds has been exceptional. His recent juvenile winners include Canigotoo, who earned a 96 Beyer &ndash; the highest this year for a North American juvenile &ndash; for his win in a maiden special weight last week at Lone Star, and Shocktime, who will start as a top choice in the Grade 3, $100,000 Debutante at Churchill Downs on Saturday after putting up the best Beyer for a 2-year-old filly to date, an 83, earlier this month at Lone Star. \r\nAs for Worthington, the move to turf might particularly suit him Saturday. Calhoun said the horse&rsquo;s owner, Michael Stinson, pointed out there are grass influences in Worthington&rsquo;s pedigree.\r\n&ldquo;He seemed to think he&rsquo;d adapt well,&rdquo; Calhoun said. \r\nWorthington&rsquo;s dam, Annis, was a winner on turf, and her sire is Texas Glitter, a Grade 3-winning turf sprinter who earned more than $800,000. Worthington, who was the first winner for his sire, will break from post 4 under Justin Shepherd. \r\nIn the Princess, Cajun Diva gets away from Shocktime, who she finished fifth to last out in the $92,000 fillies division of the Texas Thoroughbred Association Sales Futurity. Don Simington has the mount for trainer Bob Schultz. \r\nLone Star: &lsquo;U S C&rsquo; takes on winners\r\nU S C Fight Song, who is a son of the Group 1-winning turf mare Shake the Yoke, is part of a competitive field in the featured eighth race Saturday at Lone Star Park. The first-level allowance will be run at a 1 1/16 miles on turf, and it drew a field of 10. \r\nU S C Fight Song will be meeting winners for the first time after closing fast to win a maiden special weight turf route at Lone Star on May 26. Luis Quinonez has the mount for trainer Steve Asmussen.
