Stronach Stables’ Devine Aida took charge of Gulfstream’s $150, 000 Herecomesthebride Stakes after straightening away on the backstretch, opened up daylight going to the turn and then drew off down the stretch to an easy 6-3/4 length victory. It’s the second straight stakes win for the 3-year-old daughter of Unbridled’s Song, purchased by Adena Springs for $120,000 out of the de Meric Sales consignment at the 2014 OBS June Sale after working an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5.  Trained by Ramon Morales, she’s now 5-4-1-0 and has earned $201,390 to date.  watch her under tack video


Alex & JoAnn Lieblong’s graded stakes winner The Big Beast returned to the races at Oaklawn Park on Sunday and led a 1-2-3 OBS sweep of a $68,000 allowance test, wearing down front running Alsvid (April ‘11)  in the final furlong and scoring by  a length and a quarter over Double Ours (March ’12, October ’10), who closed to be second. Alsvid settled for third. Idle since his victory in Saratoga’s King’s Bishop Stakes (G1) last August, the 4-year-old colt by Yes It’s True, trained by Anthony Dutrow, is now 6-4-1-1 with $456,300 in earnings. Consigned by Ends Well, Agent, to the 2013 OBS April Sale, The Big Beast was purchased by the Lieblongs for $150,000 after working an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video
