Town & Country Farms’  Stopchargingmaria renewed her rivalry with champion Untapable in Sunday’s $200, 000 Shuvee Handicap (G3) at Saratoga, stalked her from the start, drew even after turning for home and scored by three quarters of a length after a stretch-long battle. It’s the seventh graded stakes win for the 4-year-old daughter of Tale of the Cat, acquired from Repole Stables, who purchased her for $220,000 out of the Woodford Thoroughbreds consignment at the 2013 OBS March Sale after she breezed an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. Trained by Todd Pletcher, she’s now 14-8-3-1 with $1,774,000 in earnings. watch her under tack video

Honors Stable Corp.’s Wildcat Red became the latest OBS graduate top the million dollar mark, driving between horses in deep stretch and taking Sunday’s $111,000 Teddy Drone Stakes at Monmouth Park by a head in a three horse photo. It’s the fourth stakes win for the 4-year-old Florida-bred colt by D’wildcat, trained by Jose Garoffalo, now 16-6-4-3 with $1,020,875 in earnings. Winner of Gulfstream’s Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) at three, he was purchased by his trainer for $30,000 out of the Classic Bloodstock (Danzel Brendemuehl) consignment at the 2013 OBS June Sale after working an eighth in :10 2/5 at the Under Tack Show.  watch his under tack video
