Catalina Red leads OBS sweep of Churchill Downs Stakes

Anthony A. Lenci’s Catalina Red led a 1-2-3 OBS sweep of Saturday’s $500, 000 Churchill Downs Stakes (G2), taking command in the stretch and holding off a charge by Calculator (April ’14) to win his first graded stakes race by a length. Kobe’s Back (March ’13) rallied from last for third. It’s the fifth stakes victory for the two-time OBS graduate, a 4-year-old Florida-bred colt by Munnings. He was sold to Nick de Meric, Agent, at the 2013 August Selected Yearling Sale prior to his purchase by Mr. Lenci for $71,000 out of the de Meric Sales consignment at the 2014 April Sale after an Under Tack Quarter in :21 1/5. Trained by Jorge Navarro, he’s now 10-5-1-2 and has earned $469,885 to date. watch his under tack video   Selected Sale conformation photo
