Lady Shipman scores in Woodbine’s Royal North Stakes

Ranlo Investments LLC’s Lady Shipman went right to the front in Sunday’s $150, 000 Royal North Stakes (G3) at Woodbine and never looked back on her way to a 1-3/4 length victory, running six furlongs on the turf in 1:07.70. It’s the first graded stakes win for the 4-year-old daughter of Midshipman, consigned by Pleasant Acres Farm, Agent, to the 2014 OBS April Sale, where she turned in an Under Tack eighth in :9 4/5. Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, she now has ten stakes wins, an 18-12-2-2 record and earnings of $776,042. watch her under tack video

William and Corinne Heiligbrodt’s Runway Doll was sent off as the 5-2 favorite in her debut in an $83,000 Maiden Special Weight test at Saratoga on Sunday, and she did not disappoint her backers. The 2-year-old daughter of Majestic Warrior quickly opened up a daylight lead, shrugged off a challenge on the turn then galloped away down the stretch to a 13-1/2 length victory. Trained by Steve Asmussen, she earned $49,800 for her effort. She was purchased for $175,000 by the Heiligbrodts out of the Niall Brennan Stables consignment at the 2016 OBS April Sale after speeding an eighth in :9 4/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch her under tack video
