China Horse Club’s Parranda is back in Florida and up to her old tricks in the care of trainer Christophe Clement, powering to the lead in the final sixteenth of Gulfstream Park’s $150, 000 Marshua’s River Stakes (G3) and cruising to a three length victory. It’s the fourth graded stakes win for the 6-year-old Florida-bred daughter of English Channel, who worked an Under Tack eighth in :11 flat before she was sold for $13,000 by Niall Brennan Stables, Agent, at the 2011 OBS April Sale. Closing in on a million with seven stakes wins on her resume, she’s now 29-11-4-4 and has earned $893,005. watch her under tack video 

Andrew Sulley’s Bold Thunder led a 1-2-3 OBS sweep of the $80,000 Turf Dash Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs, going to the front at the start and never looking back en route to a 3-1/4 length victory over Green Mask (April ’13), with Stormofthecentury (August ’09) checking in third. It’s the second stakes win for the 5-year-old son of Bold n’ Flashy, now 18-6-2-3 with $251,980 in earnings. A two time OBS graduate, he was consigned by Gayle Woods, Agent, to the 2012 June Sale where he worked an eighth in :10 flat at the Under Tack Show, and then he was consigned by Ms. Woods to the Horses of Racing Age section of the 2013 Winter Mixed Sale. watch his under tack video

Klaravich Stables, Inc. and William H. Lawrence’s Control Stake led from gate to wire in the $75,000 Big Drama Stakes at Delta Downs on Saturday, coasting to his first stakes win by three lengths. Trained by Tom Amoss, the 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by Discreetly Mine is now 6-3-2-1 and has earned $139,600. He was sold by Beth Bayer, Agent, for $85,000 at the 2013 OBS August Sale.
