NEW YORK (AP) – Fiftyfour Forever and jockey Javier Castellano rolled to a 21/2 length win over Great Gracie Dane in the $54,880 allowance feature for New York-bred fillies and mares on Wednesday at Belmont Park.
Since her last victory in May, Fiftyfour Forever had finished second or third in the next six races. The win was the third in 12 starts for the 3-year-old trained by Anthony Quartarolo. The time was 1:21.54 for the seven furlongs on the track rated good. The race, originally scheduled for the turf, was switched to dirt following heavy rain in the area on Tuesday night.
Fiftyfour Forever paid $5.20, $2.80 and $2.10. Great Gracie Dane, the 4-5 favorite, returned $2.40 and $2.10 while Lady Vi paid $2.60 to show.
