Solitary Ranger romps in Turfway’s Battaglia Memorial

Susan Moulton’s Solitary Ranger went right to the lead at the start of Saturday’s $100, 000 John Battaglia Memorial Stakes at Turfway Park, bounded away to eight-length lead a furlong from home, then cruised under the wire a 4-3/4 length winner. That’s two for two at three for the colt by U S Ranger, winner of the Arlington-Washington Futurity (G3) last September. Purchased by Marshall Dowell for $28,000 from Forbush Farms at the 2012 OBS Selected Yearling Sale, he’s now 6-3-2-0 and has earned $194,263 to date. Selected Yearling Sale photo
