One of the stars of this year’s OBS March Sale produced quick dividends on Wednesday when Mrs. G. Smith, Mrs. D. Tabor & Mrs. J. Magnier’s Acapulco broke her maiden in style at Royal Ascot, taking command midway through the Queen Mary Stakes (G2) and leading the rest of the way to victory by a length and a half. Trained by Wesely Ward and ridden by globetrotting superstar Ryan Moore, the 2-year-old daughter of Scat Daddy came into the race off a third place finish in her debut at Churchill in May. Consigned by McKathan Bros., Agent, to the 2015 OBS March Sale, she went to M. V. Magnier for $750,000 after an under Tack eighth in :9 3/5, the sale’s co-fastest at the distance. watch her under tack video
