Phaedrus Flights LLC’s Ekati’s Phaeton pressed the pace in Saturday’s $100, 000 Old Hat Stakes (G3) at Gulfstream Park, took charge on the turn for home and then turned back a late run by fellow OBS graduate R Sassy Lass (April ’14) en route to a half length victory. It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old daughter of Tale of Ekati, sold to Phaedrus Flights for $50,000 by Select Sales, Agent, at the 2013 August Yearling Sale. Consigned by Gayle Woods, Agent, to the 2014 March Sale, she worked an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. Trained by Bill Kaplan, she’s now 5-3-1-0 and has earned $118,360 to date. Selected Sale photo        watch her under tack video
