Coal Front captures Oaklawn’s Razorback Handicap

Robert LaPenta and Head of Plains Partners LLC’s Coal Front tried two turns for the first time in Oaklawn’s $500,000 Razorback Handicap (G3) on President’s Day, and the 5-year-old son of Stay Thirsty pressed the pace, opened daylight in the stretch and held off a late charge to win by a neck and pick up his fourth graded stakes victory. Purchased for $575,000 by Steven W. Young on behalf of Mr. LaPenta at the 2016 OBS April Sale after turning in an Under Tack quarter in :21 1/5, he’s now 8-6-0-0 and has earned $777,280 to date for trainer Todd Pletcher. watch his under tack video
