Rancho Temescal LLC, Red Baron’s Barn LLC and Rodney E. Orr’s First Peace, rated nicely off the pace in the  $101,500 John Shear Stakes at Santa Anita on Easter Sunday, slipped inside to take the lead turning for home and held on stubbornly to score by a length. Fellow OBS graduate Valiancer (June ’22) checked in third. It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old graded stakes placed colt by Funtastic, trained by Mark Glatt, now 6-2-2-1 with $141,300 in earnings. At the 2022 OBS June Sale, he turned in an Under Tack quarter in :21 flat before being purchased for $75,000 out of the Lucan Bloodstock (Karl Keegan) consignment. watch his under tack video   June Sale walking video
