Team Hanley’s Captain Bombastic is two for two and a stakes winner after taking command a furlong from home, holding on gamely and turning back stablemate and fellow OBS graduate Cleon Jones (March ’19) by a head in Saturday’s $252,500 Sleepy Hollow Stakes at Belmont Park. The 2-year-old Forty Tales colt, trained by Jeremiah Englehart has now earned $171,600. He was consigned to the 2019 OBS March Sale by Sequel Bloodstock, Agent for Chester & Mary Broman, and sold for $80,000 after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. watch his under tack video

Zimba Warrior (March ’19) checked in third. It’s the second stakes win for the 2-year-old graded stakes placed colt by Twirling Candy, consigned by Wavertree Stables to the 2019 OBS March Sale, where he went through the ring after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat.
