Skippylongstocking takes Tampa’s Challenger Stakes

Daniel Alonso’s Skippylongstocking pressed the pace in the early going of the $100,000 Challenger Stakes (G3) on Saturday at Tampa Bay Downs, battled for command after turning for home then drew away late to win by 3-1/4 lengths. It’s the second graded stakes victory for the 3-year-old colt by Exaggerator, trained by Saffie A. Joseph, Jr., now 16-5-1-3 with $862,810 in earnings. Consigned by Top Line Sales to the 2021 OBS Spring Sale, he was sold for $37,000 after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5.  watch his under tack video

Browning’s Nobody Listens took the lead at the start of the $93,500 Big Daddy Stakes on Saturday night at Turfway Park and led all the way, holding off a stretch challenge and scoring by a neck. It’s the second stakes victory for the 5-year-old son of Conveyance, purchased for $40,000 out of the Southern Chase Farm consignment at the 2020 OBS Spring Sale after turning in an Under Tack  eighth in :10 1/5.
