Spring Sale grad Dance With Fate waltzes home in Keeneland’s Blue Grass Stakes

Sharon Alesia, Bran Jam Stables,  Ciaglia Racing LLC’s Dance With Fate was far back in the early going of the $750, 000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G1), but he moved up strongly on the turn, hit the front a furlong from home and drew off to win by a length and three quarters. It’s the first grade one win for the 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by Two Step Salsa, runner-up in the Del Mar Futurity (G1) and FrontRunner Stakes (G1) at two. Purchased by Joseph Ciaglia, Jr. for $120,000 out of the Best A Luck Farm consignment at the 2013 OBS April Sale, he’s now 8-3-3-0 and has earned $680,050. watch his under tack video

Martin Racing Stable LLC’s Marchman picked up his second stakes win the way he won his first, taking the lead at the start and staying there all the way, holding on gamely and scoring by a neck in Saturday’s $100,000 Shakertown Stakes (G3) on the Keeneland turf course. One for three this year, the 4-year-old Sharp Humor colt, sold  for $90,000 by Seahorse Stables LLC, Agent, at the 2012 OBS April Sale after a quarter in :21 2/5 at the Under Tack Show, is now 12-4-2-3 and has earned $225,628. watch his under tack video
