William & Corrine Heiligbrodt’s Mitole gave nothing else a chance in Saturday’s $200,000 Chick Lang Stakes at Pimlico, taking the lead shortly after the break, opening a long lead in the lane and coasting home to a 6-1/4 length victory. It’s the second straight stakes win for the 3-year-old colt by Eskendereya, now 7-4-2-1 for trainer Steve Asmussen with earnings of $348,710. Consigned by Grassroots Training & Sales LLC to the 2017 OBS April Sale, he was sold for $140,000 after turning in an eighth in :10 flat at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video


LNJ Foxwoods and NK Racing’s Explorer made his debut in a $55,725 Maiden Special Weight test on Friday at Santa Anita and got his career off to an impressive start, going right to the front and never looking back en route to a four length win. Bob Baffert trains the 3-year-old colt by Orb, who picked up $32,400 for his effort. He breezed an eighth in :10 flat at the Under Tack Show before he was purchased by the team of Solis/Litt for $1,250,000 out of the Crupi’s New Castle Farm consignment at the 2017 OBS March Sale. watch his under tack video
