La Coronel captures Keeneland’s Jessamine Stakes

John C. Oxley’s La Coronel stepped into stakes company in Wednesday’s $150, 000 J P Morgan Chase Jessamine Stakes (G3) at Keeneland fresh from breaking her maiden at Saratoga in her last start. The 2-year-old daughter of Colonel John rallied on the turn, took charge a furlong from home and then drew away smartly to a 4-1/4 length victory. After speeding a quarter in :20 4/5 at the Under Tack Show prior to the 2016 OBS April Sale, she was purchased out of the Winners Circle Thoroughbreds consignment for $375,000. Trained by Mark Casse, she’s now 4-2-0-0 with $144,615 in earnings. watch her under tack video
