Preston Buys Half-Interest in Shesastonecoldfox

Art Preston of Prestonwood Farm has purchased a half-interest in Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) contender Shesastonecoldfox from Dennis and Deborah Petrisak's Langpap Stables, who also bred the filly. Preston attempted to purchase the filly outright over the weekend, but a disagreement over the deadline to complete the deal caused it to fall through. Thomas J. Gallo Sales Agency represented the sellers and Stephanie Dyer acted on behalf of Prestonwood in the transaction.

If Shesastonecoldfox competes in the Breeders' Cup, she will run in Langpap Stables' silks.

The undefeated Shesastonecoldfox (Foxhound -- Morgans Raider) is trained by Finger Lakes Downs based conditioner Anthony Ferraro and has earned $196,320. She last ran in the Joseph A. Gimma Stakes at Belmont Sept. 30 and won by a convincingly 15 1/2 lengths.

This morning Shesastonecoldfox breezed five furlongs in 1:01 1/5 over the main track at Belmont Park. "The way she worked today, I am feeling very confident, " Ferraro said. "I don't know if it's Breeders' Cup fever or what. She worked just so good."

Shesastonecoldfox is also eligible to run in the $100,000 Maid of the Mist at a mile on Sunday, one of seven state-bred restricted races that make up New York Showcase weekend.
