Wild Dude rallies to win Del Mar’s Bing Crosby Stakes

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer and Green Smith’s Wild Dude relaxed off the early pace in Sunday’s $300, 000 Bing Crosby Stakes (G1) at Del Mar, but came running in the stretch, charged past odds-on favorite Masochistic in the final yards and captured his first grade one race by a length and quarter. Fellow OBS graduate Kobe’s Back (March ’13), who lost all chance with a poor start, rallied to be third. It’s the third graded stakes win for the 5-year-old Florida-bred son of Wildcat Heir, now 16-6-3-4 with earnings of $724,887. A two-time OBS graduate, he was 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. His half brother by Awesome of Course (Hip No. 808) sells in the upcoming OBS August Yearling Sale. watch his under tack video

Conquest Stables’ Conquest Pacemaker jumped into stakes company straight from a maiden win and handled the raise in class with ease, taking the lead at the start of Sunday’s $131,500 Toronto Cup Stakes at Woodbine and never looking back en route to a 1-1/2 length victory. The 3-year-old son of Eskendereya, trained by Mark Casse, is now 3-2-0-1 and has earned $88,984. A two time OBS graduate, he was sold by Summerfield, Agent, at the 2013 August Yearling Sale before he was purchased for $150,000 out of the Casse Sales LLC (Justin Casse) consignment at the 2014 March Sale after working an eighth in :10 3/5 at the Under Tack Show.
