OBS grads one-two as Tanzanite Cat takes Oaklawn’s Smarty Jones Stakes

James L. Driver and H. Ywachetta’s Tanzanite Cat tried two turns for the first time in the one mile $150, 000 Smarty Jones Stakes at Oaklawn on Monday, fought fellow OBS graduate Walt (April ’13) down the stretch and eased away from him late for a 1-1/4 length victory. It’s the second straight win for the three time OBS graduate, consigned first by Andy Cant, Agent, to the 2011 Fall Mixed Sale before being sold by Cant at the 2012 August Sale. He was then resold for $150,000 by Thoroughbred Friends & Associates, Agent, at the 2013 April Sale. The 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by Graeme Hall is now 3-2-1-0-1 and has earned $123,000. watch his under tack video
