Stopchargingmaria romps in Pimlico’s Allaire DuPont Distaff Stakes

Town & Country Farms’ Stopchargingmaria swept three wide toward the lead on the turn of Friday’s $150, 000 Allaire DuPont Distaff Stakes (G3) at Pimlico, took charge after straightening away in the stretch and cruised to a four length victory. The 4-year-old daughter of Tale of the Cat, trained by Todd Pletcher, is now 13-7-3-1 with five graded stakes wins and earnings of $1, 654,000. She was acquired from Repole Stables, who purchased her for $220,000 out of the Woodford Thoroughbreds consignment after she breezed an eighth in :10 1/5 at the 2013 OBS March Sale’s Under Tack Show.  watch her under tack video

James A. Bryan, Jr.’s Celestine stayed on the fence while chasing front running fellow OBS graduate Lady Shipman (April ’14) in Belmont’s $98,000 Wait a While Stakes on Saturday, collared her a sixteenth from the wire and scored by a length and a half. Lady Shipman settled for third. It’s the second straight stakes score and third straight win for the 3-year-old filly by Scat Daddy, now trained by Chad Brown. Now 6-3-1-0 with $141,075 in earnings, she was consigned by Gayle Woods on behalf of Mr. Bryan’s Phaedrus Flights to the 2014 OBS June Sale, where she turned in the Under Tack Show’s fastest three eighths, stopping the timer in :32 2/5.  watch her under tack video
