Four-year-old filly Classy Grey Lassy made her much anticipated debut worth the wait for owner Anita Nesser when she romped home in a maiden special weight at Fair Grounds on March 20. Dominating the boys, the Michelle Lovell trainee broke well from the gate and drove home clear under jockey Richard Eramia to win by 10 lengths.
Slow to mature as a two and three-year-old, Classy Grey Lassy was sent to Margaux Farm to be freshened prior to shipping to trainer Michelle Lovell.
“She came to the farm because she showed signs of immaturity, and needed more time to develop physically and mentally,” noted farm trainer, Dermot Littlefield. “We had her galloping at the farm, and shipped her out to Michelle Lovell. She did a great job preparing her for her first start.”
With an eye catching debut, the future only looks bright for the gray Silver Train filly purchased from the Keeneland January Sale for $6,500.
“She looked classy in her debut, and I would expect her to improve going forward,” said Littlefield.
