Mr. Amore Stable’s Ribo Bobo stalked the pace in the $150, 000 Florida Sunshine Millions Sprint Stakes at Gulfstream on Saturday, took command after straightening away for home, then eased away to a 1-3/4 length victory. It’s the second straight win for the 6-year-old gelding by Louis Quatorze, whose nine race winning streak in 2013 included stakes victories at Monmouth and Laurel. Fourth at three in the OBS Sprint Stakes, he’s now 49-16-9-3 and has earned $659,655. As a weanling, he was consigned by Summerfield (Francis & Barbara Vanlangendonck), Agent, to the 2010 OBS Winter Mixed Sale.

Lone Stable LLC’s Parranda moved up strongly on the far turn in Saturday’s $150,000 Sunshine Millions Filly and Mare Turf Stakes at Gulfstream, took over at the top of the stretch then bounded away to a three length victory over fellow OBS graduate E B Ryder (April ’12). It’s the third stakes score for the 5-year-old Florida-bred daughter of English Channel, sold for $13,000 by Niall Brennan Stables, Agent, at the 2011 OBS April Sale. The win leaves her with a 19-7-7-2 record and $358,655 in earnings. watch her under tack video
