OBS grads score four stakes wins on Del Mar’s closing card

In addition to Rolling Fog’s Del Mar Futurity (G1) victory, three other OBS graduates scored stakes wins on the closing day card. In all, OBS alumni had a big Del Mar meet, winning or placing in ten stakes races, with nine youngsters scoring maiden victories.

Sam Britt & Michael House’s Dry Summer found stakes company on the Del Mar turf course to his liking, rallying from fifth in the early stages, closing strongly and getting up by a neck to win the $100,000 Oaks Tree Juvenile Turf Stakes. It’s the first stakes win for 2-year-old son of Any Given Saturday, now 3-2-0-0 with earnings of $105,000. He was sold for $120,000 by Eddie Woods, Agent, at the 2012 OBS April Sale. watch his under tack video

Gary Barber, Roger Birnbaum & Kevin Tsujihara’s Comma to the Top took charge of Del Mar’s $96,110 Pirate’s Bounty Stakes after straightening away in the stretch and eased away to win by a length and three quarters. It’s the fourth stakes win for the 4-year-old Florida-bred graded stakes winning gelding by Bwana Charlie, sold first by Beth Bayer, Agent, as a weanling at the 2010 OBS Fall Mixed Sale before bringing $22,000 when purchased out of the Indian Prairie Ranch consignment at the 2010 April Sale. Now 21-9-2-1 he’s earned $916,096 to date. watch his under tack video

Lanni Family Trust’s Reneesgotzip, idle since May, went right to the lead in Del Mar’s $89,000 C.E.R.F Stakes and was never headed en route to a 3-1/4 length victory, running six furlongs in a swift 1:08 1/5. Fellow OBS graduate Jet Blue Girl (April ’09) checked in third. A graded stakes winner at two, the 3-year-old daughter of City Zip is now 6-4-2-0 and has earned $314,600. She was sold by Ricky Leppala, Agent, for $45,000 at the 2011 OBS April Sale. watch her under tack video
