Con Lima wins Gulfstream’s Herecomesthebride Stakes

Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners, Joseph F. Graffeo, Eric Nikolaus Del Toro and Troy Johnson’s Con Lima was awarded first place in the $100,000 Herecomesthebride Stakes (G3) on Saturday at Gulfstream Park after the 3-year-old filly by Commissioner turned in a strong stretch run to finish a clear second. Fellow OBS graduate I Get It (October ’19) was placed third. Now 8-4-4-0 for trainer Todd Pletcher, she has a pair of stakes wins to her credit and earnings of $214,495. Consigned by Niall Brennan Stables to the 2020 OBS March Sale, she went through the ring after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5.  watch her under tack video

Joseph P. Morey, Jr. Revocable Trust’s Hush of a Storm was well off the pace in the early going of the $82,830 John Battaglia Memorial Stakes on Friday night at Turfway Park, but came running late, took charge in the final sixteenth and scored by a length over fellow OBS graduate Like the King (October ’19). It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old colt by Creative Cause, purchased for $75,000 out of the de Meric Sales consignment at the 2020 OBS Spring Sale after turning in an Under Tack quarter in :21 3/5. Trained by William E. Morey, he’s now 4-3-0-0 and has earned $65,985 to date. watch his under tack video
