Payton d'Oro (foaled 2006 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred filly racehorse. She has won four of her last five outings. The daughter of Medaglia d'Oro will best be remembered for posting a 1¼-length score in the mile and an eighth $250,000 Grade II Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on May 15, 2009. [1]

Three year-old season

Trained by J. Larry Jones, she previously notched a 4-¾ length score in the one mile $75,000 Instant Racing Stakes at Oaklawn Park on April 11, 2009. After winning three straight races at Oaklawn Park in the spring of her sophomore season, her connections decided to enter her in the second jewel of America's defacto Filly Triple Crown, the Black-eyed Susan Stakes.

Payton d'Oro was the third choice at 5-2 at post time in a strong field of eight stakes winners. As the gates opened up, she sprang out to a quick lead trailed closely by 35-1 longshot Stage Trick as they passed the stands at Pimlico for the first time. With three furlongs to go in the race, the 8-5 favorite Cassanova Move pulled up on close to the two front runners. In the mean time 7-1 Bon Jovi Girl made a bold rush on the rail passing both Stage Trick and Cassanova Move. The leader Payton d'Oro had a little left in the tank and held on to beat Bon Jovi Girl by 1-1/2 lengths.

Later in her three year-old season the John Ferris and Mike Pressley filly Payton d’Oro topped a field of nine entered in the $125,000 Susan's Girl Stakes at Delaware Park. The mile and a sixteenth test for fillies is the local prep for the mile and a sixteenth $250,000 Grade II Delaware Oaks run on July 18. Both Payton d'Oro and her rival Bon Jovi Girl disappointed their fans that day finishing sixth and fourth respectively.

Payton d'Oro won her next race in October of her sophomore season when she moved to the lead soon after the opening quarter mile of the race in the $200,000 Remington Park Oaks. Once she assumed control of the lead she never looked back and won by a one-length margin in the 1-1/16 mile race. She beat Multipass who finished second by a nose in front of the late-running Peach Brew for third.

Four year-old season

Payton d'Oro won the Bayakoa Stakes at one mile and one sixteenth on dirt at Oaklawn Park in April of her junior season. She has a career record of six wins and four seconds from fourteen starts with career earnings $415,183 for the bay filly.

Owned by John Ferris and Mike Pressley, Payton d'Oro was bred in Kentucky by T/C Stable and James Carter. Out of the Jade Hunter mare Jealous and Jaded, she was sold at the 2007 Keeneland September yearling sale for $35,000.
