Midnight Bisou takes the Houston Ladies Classic Stakes

Bloom Racing Stable, Madaket Stables LLC and Allen Racing LLC’s Midnight Bisou was last in the early going of Sunday’s $300,000 Houston Ladies Classic Stakes (G3) at Sam Houston, but closed with a rush in the final sixteenth to win by three quarters of a length. It’s the sixth graded stakes score for the 4-year-old daughter of Midnight Lute, trained by Steve Asmussen, now 12-6-3-3 with $1,745,000 in earnings. Consigned by Woodford Thoroughbreds to the 2017 OBS April Sale, she breezed an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5 before she was sold to Jeffrey Bloom for $80,000. watch her under tack video

Michael Dubb, Madaket Stables LLC and Bethlehem Stables LLC’s World of Trouble made short work of his overmatched rivals in Saturday’s $150,000 Gulfstream Park Turf Sprint Stakes, leading from gate to wire and winning by 2-3/4 lengths in a race run on the main track due to the weather. That’s five stakes wins for the grade one stakes placed 4-year-old Florida-bred colt by Kantharos, consigned by Darsan Inc., Agent, to the 2016 August Yearling Sale. Now 10-6-2-1 for trainer Jason Servis, he has earned $671,400 to date.
