Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence’s Patternrecognition went straight to the front at the start of Aqueduct’s $784,125 Cigar Mile Handicap (G1) on Saturday and led all the way, cruising under the wire with a three quarter length victory. It’s the second straight graded stakes win for the 5-year-old Florida-bred son of Adios Charlie, trained by Chad Brown, now 11-5-5-0, with earnings of $812,325. He turned in an Under Tack quarter in :21 1/5 before he was purchased for $420,000 out of the Ocala Stud consignment at the 2015 OBS April Sale.  watch his under tack video

Goldmart Farms and Royal Laser Racing’s Kingsport successfully defended his title in Sunday’s $100,000 Sir Barton Stakes at Woodbine, rating off the lead in the early going, moving to the leaders on the turn, taking over a quarter mile from home and drawing off to win by 3-3/4 lengths. It’s the ninth stakes victory for the 6-year-old son of Milwaukee Brew, who also took the Sir Barton in 2015. Now 31-11-7-3 for trainer Sid Attard, he has earned $695,945 to date. He turned in an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5 before he was purchased for $45,000 out of the RiceHorse Stables consignment at the 2014 OBS June Sale. watch his under tack video
