Sizzling Filly Shines At Official 2yo Trials

Sep 17, 2018

Only three fillies went around in this heat with the Matt Dale trained winner Calescent sitting three wide and powering to the line to beat Sidestep filly One Step by half a length. 

The Sizzling filly was bought for a modest $32,500 by Darby Racing/ De Burgh Equine from the Eureka Stud draft at Inglis Classic and is the second winner on the day for Darby who won earlier with Exceed the Stars in Heat 1. Calescent is the second foal of Pimlico Girl, a three-quarter sister by Exceed and Excel to Group II winner and Golden Slipper place-getter Churchill Downs.
