FARMINGTON, N.Y. – Sassy Agnes was a three and one-half length winner of the $50,000 Shesastonecoldfox Stakes at Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack (FLGR) on Monday. She completed the six furlong dash for 2-year-old New York-bred fillies in a final time of 1:11.43.
The $113,182 earner owned by Beach Haven Thoroughbreds became the first 2018 multiple stakes winner at FLGR. She also won the $116,550 Lady Finger Stakes at FLGR on September 8.
The Linda Rice-trainee was guided to the convincing triumph by jockey Oscar Gomez and paid $5.60, $3.50 and $2.10. Wait a Minute was second and returned $5.30 and $3.00. Party Like Grandma was third and paid $2.10.
The $50,000 Shesastonecoldfox Stakes is named after the female thoroughbred that had a memorable 2-year-old season.

She was voted champion 2-year-old filly by the New York Thoroughbred Breeders’ and is currently a member of the FLGR Hall of Fame.
The fifth running of the $50,000 Shesastonecoldfox completed the 2018 stakes calendar at FLGR. Live thoroughbred action continues at FLGR five days a week until the conclusion of the meet on November 28.
