Edited press release
Jockey Jeremy Rose's decision to remain at Delaware Park for most of Saturday afternoon paid off when he rode Trickle of Gold to victory in the $75,000 Sweet and Sassy Stakes for fillies and mares at six furlongs.
Rose left immediately to catch a helicopter ride to the Baltimore area to ride Hemmingway's Key in the Preakness Stakes (gr. I) at Pimlico Race Course. He had taken off several mounts at Pimlico earlier in the day to ride the filly at Delaware Park.
Trickle of Gold, owned by John Murphy and trained by Mike Gorham, won by a length as the favorite and paid $4.20 to win. Annika Lass was second, with Miss Elsie third.
Trickle of Gold got the six furlongs on a fast track in 1:09.16. The 4-year-old Kentucky-bred filly by Formal Gold
out of the Tricky Fun mare Tricky Starlet won for the ninth time in 17 career starts. She has now won seven of 10 starts at Delaware Park and has career earnings of $396,709.
