Declassify, Sheza Smoke Show score in Santa Anita graded stakes

Kaleem Shah’s Declassify went head and head with Cyclometer in the early going in Santa Anita’s $300, 250 Triple Bend Stakes (G1), appeared beaten in the final furlong but came again along the rail and was up in the final jump to win by a nose. It’s the first stakes win for the 4-year-old colt by Orientate, purchased for $450,000 out of the Eddie Woods consignment at the 2012 OBS April Sale after he turned in an eighth in :10 flat at the Under Tack Show. Now 5-3-1-0, he has earned $261,240. watch his under tack video

It’s the first stakes score for the 3-year-old daughter of Wilko, now 6-3-0-1 with $138,438 in earnings.
