OBS Yearling Sale graduates enjoy a big weekend

WSS Racing LLC and Hooties Racing LLC’s Mr Dumas rated off the early pace in Saturday’s $175,000 Commonwealth Turf Stakes (G3) at Churchill Downs, rallied wide on the turn, took command in the stretch and held off a late charge by fellow OBS graduate Tracksmith (April ’18) to score by half a length. It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old colt by Majesticperfection, now 6-3-0-3 with $211,160 in earnings for trainer John Ortiz.  A two-time OBS graduate, he was sold first by Stuart Morris, Agent, at the 2017 October Selected Yearling Sale and then purchased for $100,000 out of the RiceHorse Stable consignment at the 2018 April Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. watch his under tack video
