Marc Tacher’s Lovely Luvy is the latest OBS Yearling Sale graduate to win at first asking, going right to the lead in a six furlong maiden special on Thursday at Gulfstream and never looking back en route to a 4-1/4 length victory. The 2-year-old filly by He’s Had Enough is a two time OBS graduate, sold by Summerfield, Agent, at the 2017 Selected Sale of Yearlings, and then purchased by Mr. Tacher for $70,000 out of the Grassroots Training & Sales consignment at the 2018 April Sale after breezing an eighth in :10 2/5 at the Under Tack Show. Trained by Victor Barboza, Jr., she earned $41,000 for her effort. Selected Sale conformation photo     watch her under tack video
