Starless Night, Story to Tell score in weekend stakes races

Tucci Stables’ Starless Night jumped from a front-running maiden win on June 28th into Sunday’s $150, 000 Shady Well Stakes at Woodbine and the result was a carbon copy gate to wire win, this time by 2-1/2 lengths. Now two for two with earnings of $121,583, the 2-year-old daughter of Grand Slam was purchased by Carlos Tucci for $40,000 out of the Wavertree Stables consignment at the 2014 OBS April Sale after she breezed an eighth in :10 2/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch her under tack video

Cecil N. Peacock’s Story to Tell took charge of Sunday’s $98,000 W. L. Proctor Memorial Stakes at Los Alamitos after turning for home and eased away to a 1-1/4 length victory. It’s the first stakes win for the 2-year-old colt by Bluegrass Cat; he was second in last month’s Santa Anita Juvenile Stakes. Now 3-2-1-0 with $118,600 in earnings, he was sold for $82,000 by Thoroughstock, Agent, at the 2013 OBS August Sale. Selected Sale conformation photo

West Point Thoroughbreds’ Empire Dreams was content to relax off the pace in Saturday’s $161,000 New York Derby at Finger Lakes, but circled the field on the far turn, rallied down the middle of track and rolled to a 2-1/4 length victory. It’s the second stakes win for the 3-year-old colt by Patriot Act, consigned to the 2013 OBS April Sale by Crupi’s New Castle Farm, Agent, and sold to West Point for $35,000 after working an Under Tack quarter in :21 2/5. He’s now 9-3-4-1 and has earned $320,500. watch his under tack video

It’s the fourth stakes win for the 4-year-old colt by Majestic Warrior, now 13-6-3-1 with earnings of $1,585,095.
