Mr. Misunderstood captures Churchill’s Wise Dan Stakes

Flurry Racing Stables LLC’s Mr. Misundertood overcame a bump at the start of Saturday’s $200,000 Wise Dan Stakes (G2) at Churchill Downs, sat just off the pace, rallied down the stretch and took over late to win by half a length. It’s the fifth stakes win for the 4-year-old gelding by Archarcharch, winner of the Commonwealth Turf Stakes (G3) over the same course last November. Now 17-10-2-0 for trainer Brad Cox, he has earned $574,714 to date. He was purchased for $130,000 out of the Woodford Thoroughbreds consignment at the 2016 OBS March Sale after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. watch his under tack video
