Alsvid captures Churchill’s Aristides Stakes

Black Hawk Stable’s Alsvid spoiled reigning sprint champion Work All Week’s 2015 debut in Churchill’s $100, 000 Aristides Stakes (G3) on Saturday, charging past him in the stretch and drawing off to a two length victory. It’s the third straight win and second graded stakes score for the Chris Hartman trained 6-year-old son of Officer, sold for $55,000 by Stephens Thoroughbreds, Agent, at the 2011 OBS April Sale after he sped an eighth in :10 flat at the Under Tack Show. With nine stakes wins to his credit, he has earned $994,225 to date and his record stands at 30-13-7-3. watch his under tack video

Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence’s Strict Compliance stepped into stakes company for the first time in the $150,000 Penn Oaks at Penn National on Saturday, and the 3-year-old Florida-bred filly by Into Mischief rallied to edge fellow OBS graduate Quality Rocks (August ’13) by half a length for her third straight win. Trained by Chad Brown, her first stakes victory leaves her with a 4-3-1-0 record and earnings of $160,100. She was sold for $100,000 by Casse Sales LLC (Justin Casse), Agent for Kinsman Farm at the 2014 OBS June Sale after turning in an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch her under tack video

Joe Ragsdale’s Sarah Sis took control of Saturday’s $75,000 Panthers Stakes at Prairie Meadows at the break and stayed in front all the way, reporting home first by a length and three quarters, with fellow OBS graduate Magnolia Steel (June ’14) checking in third. It’s the second stakes win for the 3-year-old daughter of Sharp Humor, winner of Oaklawn’s Honeybee Stakes (G3) earlier this year. She was purchased for $20,000 by Mr. Ragsdale out of the Doble Jak consignment at the 2014 OBS June Sale after working an Under Tack eighth in:10 1/5. Trained by Ingrid Mason, she’s now 9-4-3-0 with $260,000 in earnings. watch her under tack video
