Feathered takes Churchill’s Edgewood Stakes

Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners’ Feathered took the lead at the start of Churchill’s $150, 000 Edgewood Stakes (G3) on Oaks Day and stayed there all the way to the wire, holding off fellow OBS graduate Quality Rocks (August ’13) by two lengths, with B Rockett (April ’14) checking in fourth. It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old daughter of Indian Charlie, who placed in a pair of graded stakes at two. Trained by Todd Pletcher, she’s now 8-2-2-1 with $400,974 in earnings. She was sold for $300,000 by Crupi’s New Castle Farm, Agent, at the 2014 March Sale after working an eighth in :10 flat at the Under Tack Show. watch her under tack video 

James L. Driver and H. Ywachetta’s Rivers Run Deep was sent away a 1-9 favorite in Saturday’s $75,000 Edward Babst/Albert Palacios Memorial Handicap at Belterra Park and he justified that billing, taking the lead at the start and drawing off in the stretch to a nine length victory. It’s the sixth stakes win for the 4-year-old colt by Ready’s Image, trained by Chris Hartman, now 18-8-6-2 with $434,300 in earnings. He was sold by Rod McVey, Agent, for $77,000 to Garry Simms, Agent for James Driver, at the 2013 OBS June Sale after he worked an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat. watch his under tack video

Gainesway Stable’s Danzatrice tried stakes company for the first time in Saturday’s $76,500 Parx Oaks, took charge at the top of the stretch after stalking the leaders, then drew away in the lane and won by 4-1/4 lengths. It’s the third win in four starts for the 3-year-old daughter of Dunkirk, sold for $105,000 by Grassroots Training & Sales LLC at the 2014 OBS April Sale after she turned in an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. Trained by Cathal Lynch, she’s now 4-3-1-0 with earnings of $104,340. watch her under tack video
