Larry Pratt and Dave Alden’s Doctor Mounty was last going in the early going of Saturday’s $100,000 Tropical Turf Stakes (G3) at Gulfstream, but swung out on the turn, closed on the outside down the stretch and ran past the leaders late to win by a length. It’s the second graded stakes win for the 5-year-old son of Street Sense, purchased for $170,000 out of the Niall Brennan Stables consignment at the 2015 OBS June Sale after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 3/5. Now 25-7-5-3 for trainer Shug McGaughey, he has earned $419,820 to date. watch his under tack video
