Alex & JoAnn Lieblong’s The Big Beast jumped into stakes company for the first time in the $500, 000 King’s Bishop Stakes (G1) at Saratoga, and although a bit further from the lead turning for home than expected, put in a determined run down the stretch and got up to win by a neck in the final strides. Consigned by Ends Well, Agent, to the 2013 OBS April Sale, the 3-year-old colt by Yes It’s True was purchased by the Lieblongs for $150,000 after working an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. His third straight victory leaves him 5-3-1-1 with earnings of  $415,500. watch his under tack video
