OBS June has grown in stature, steadily producing horses competing at the highest levels throughout North America. Moyglare Stud Farm, Ltd.’s millionaire Celestine is the 2017 catalog’s cover girl, winner of the recent Honey Fox Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park. It was the third graded win for the daughter of Scat Daddy, whose resume also boasts a victory in the Just a Game Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park. Now trained by Christophe Clement, she was purchased by her current connections for $2,550,000 last November. Consigned by Gayle Woods on behalf of James Bryan’s Phaedrus Flights to the 2014 OBS June Sale, she breezed three eighths in :32 2/5 at the Under Tack Show, the sale’s fastest work at the distance. watch her under tack video
