Dennis "Peaches" Geier, assistant to trainer Bret Calhoun, told Churchill Downs the daughter of My Golden Song will opt for the Eight Belles, a seven-furlong race for 3-year-old fillies on Friday's Oaks undercard.
Fiftyshadesofgold's two stakes wins have come in sprints. She won last year's six-furlong Debutante Stakes at Churchill Downs and she opened this season with a clear victory in the seven-furlong Two Altazano Stakes at Sam Houston Race Park.
Fiftyshadesofgold finished second, 7 3/4 lengths behind likely Kentucky Oaks favorite Untapable, in the 1 1/16-mile Fair Grounds Oaks March 29.
Out of the winning Hadif mare Hadif Cat, Fiftyshadesofgold was bred in Texas by the late Clarence Scharbauer Jr. and races for his estate.
