According to co-owner/trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, Lady of Fifty has been retired. The Grade I winner of the Clement L. Hirsch Stakes will, therefore, not be running in the Zenyatta Stakes nor will she be an entry in the November 1 Breeders’ Cup Distaff, both Grade I races..
Bred by Cloverleaf Farms in Kentucky, Lady of Fifty was purchased by Hollendorfer at the Keeneland 2010 September sale for $40,000. She is by After Market out of K.D.'s Shady Lady by Maria's Mon.
Said Hollendorfer of Lady of Fifty,
It's always a pleasure to buy a horse from the yearling sale and take them to the very top of their game. We were fortunate to be able to do that with her and we're grateful to have had her.
Co-owners George Todaro and Hollendorfer plan to consign the young mare to the November breeding sale at Keeneland. Lady of Fifty is stabled at Santa Anita and remains in training daily. Hollendorfer said, "She's at the track and I'm jogging her every day so she'll look nice for the sale."
Lady of Fifty was the victor in six stakes carrying the colors of her two co-owners. She is a capable Grade I winner, retiring with earnings of $593,000 and a record of 7-1-5 from her 16 starts.
