Allied Racing Stable's multiple graded stakes winner Mr. Money continued his march toward next Saturday's $1 million Pennsylvania Derby (GI) at Parx with a spirited two-minute lick early Friday morning at Churchill Downs.
Trained by Bret Calhoun, Mr. Money will ride a four-race win streak into the Pennsylvania Derby – the marquee race at Parx Racing located just outside Philadelphia. The son of Goldencents began his win streak at Churchill Downs with convincing victories in the $400,000 Pat Day Mile Presented by LG&E and KU (GIII) and $150,000 Matt Winn (GIII) prior to a 2 ½-length win in the $500,000 Indiana Derby (GIII) and six-length triumph in the $500,000 West Virginia Derby (GIII).
“It's sure going to be fun seeing some of the best 3-year-olds come together,” Calhoun said. “Both sides of the fence, our race looks ultra-competitive and the Cotillion is going to be a heck of a race too.
“This morning we decided just to two-minute lick (Mr. Money) because of how fresh he is and I didn't want to have him go :58 or :59 a week out from the race. He's certainly ready to run.”
Mr. Money is scheduled to fly to Parx Wednesday.
