June Sale graduates continue to compete successfully at the racing’s highest levels. Since the beginning of 2018, June grads won or placed 163 times in stakes races, a rate of better than two a week.
During this time, the June Sale’s brightest star has been Rockingham Ranch and David A. Bernsen LLC’s ’s Stormy Liberal, back to back winner of the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1) and 2018’s Eclipse Award winner as champion turf male. The now 7-year-old son of Stormy Atlantic, trained by Peter Miller, has won or placed in eleven graded stakes, compiled a 33-12-10-2 career record and earned over $2.1-million to date. He breezed an eighth in :10 2/5 at the Under Tack Show at the 2014 Sale before he was purchased for $100,000 out of the Wavertree Stables consignment. watch his under tack video
They don’t come much tougher than Charles Fipke’s grade one winner Seeking the Soul, consigned by McKathan Bros., Agent, to the 2015 Sale, where he went through the ring after breezing an Under Tack eighth :10 1/5. Trained by Dallas Stewart, the 6-year-old son of Perfect Soul (IRE) has won or placed in 19 of 26 starts and earned just over $2.9-million. watch his under tack video
A graduate of last year’s June Sale, Peter Redekop‘s El Camino Real Derby winner Anothertwistafate is pointing for the Preakness. The 3-year-old colt by Scat Daddy, second in the Sunland Park Derby and second in the recent Lexington Stakes (G3) at Keeneland, has been first or second in five of six starts and has earned $303,505 for trainer Blaine Wright. He was purchased for $360,000 out of the Wavertree Stables consignment after breezing an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video
June Sale graduates in the headlines include Thoroughbred Champions Training Center LLC’s Gladiator King and Hronis Racing LLC’s St. Joe Bay.
Gladiator King’s last two starts produced two stakes victories, the first a score in Gulfstream’s Hutcheson Stakes (G3) in March. The 3-year-old colt by Curlin, trained by Jaime Mejia, is now 13-5-1-1 with $216,535 in earnings.

St. Joe Bay has been earning his living of late in the always tough sprint division in California, his last start a victory in the San Carlos Stakes (G2) at Santa Anita. It was the third graded stakes win for the 7-year-old Florida-bred gelding by Saint Anddan, trained by John Sadler, leaving him with a 36-7-7-6 record and $734,515 in earnings. He’s a two time OBS graduate, consigned by Bobby Jones Equine LLC, Agent to the 2013 Winter Mixed Sale and then purchased for $60,000 out of the Bobby Dodd consignment at the 2014 Sale after an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat. watch his under tack video
