Wild Dude leads 1-2-3 OBS sweep of Santa Anita’s San Carlos Stakes

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer and Green Smith’s Wild Dude led a 1-2-3 OBS sweep of Santa Anita’s $250, 500 San Carlos Stakes (G2) on Saturday, battling for the lead from the start, taking command turning for home and holding off Kobe’s Back (March ’13) by three quarters of a length, with Conquest Two Step (April ’13, August ’12) another three quarters back in third. It’s the second graded stakes win for the two-time OBS graduate, sold first by Perrone Sales, Agent, at the 2010 Fall Mixed Sale and then resold for $42,000 by Costanzo Sales after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5 at the 2012 April Sale. The 5-year-old Florida-bred son of Wildcat Heir is now 12-5-3-2 and has earned $494,220. watch his under tack video

Joe Ragdale’s Sarah Sis picked up her first graded stakes win in Saturday’s $150,000 Honeybee Stakes (G3) at Oaklawn Park, taking charge on the second turn, opening a long lead in the lane and coasting to victory by a length and a half. The 3-year-old daughter of Sharp Humor worked an Under Tack eighth in:10 1/5 before she was purchased for $20,000 by Mr. Ragsdale out of the Doble Jak consignment at the 2014 OBS June Sale. The win leaves her with a 6-3-3-0 record with $203,000 in earnings. watch her under tack work

It’s the second stakes win for the 3-year-old Florida-bred filly by Rock Hard Ten, trained by Bill Mott, now 6-3-2-0 with earnings of $245,200.
