Monarch Stable’s Art G Is Back led a 1-2-3 OBS sweep of the $100,000 Benny The Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park on Saturday, rallying wide to reach contention turning for home and catching Royal Squeeze (March ’14) in the final yards to score by a neck. Ice Tea (June ’16) checked in third. It’s the second stakes win for the 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by Exchange Rate, trained by Ron Spatz, now 11-4-3-2 with $235,655 in earnings. He was purchased for $90,000 out of the Craig L. Wheeler consignment at the 2018 OBS April Sale after turning in an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video
