D.J. Stable LLC’s June Sale graduate Webslinger rated kindly between horses in the early going of Churchill’s $500,000 American Turf Stakes (G2), swung out after turning for home and outfought a pair of rivals to win a three-horse photo by a nose. It’s the first graded stakes victory for the 3-year-old colt by Constitution, a two-time OBS graduate. After going through the ring at the 2022 Spring Sale, he was purchased for $50,000 out of the Blue River Bloodstock consignment at the June Sale after breezing three eighths in :33 1/5. Trained by Mark Casse, he’s now 8-3-2-1 and has earned $723,800.  watch his under tack video   June Sale walking video

Ashbrook Farm and Upland Flats Racing’s Red Carpet Ready got the Derby weekend off to a rousing start on Friday, taking Churchill’s $500,000 Eight Belles Stakes (G2).  Tracking the leaders down the backstretch, the 3-year-old daughter of Oscar Performance ran past odds-on favorite Munnys Gold turning for home, then gamely held off a late run by the favorite and was best by a head. To date, she has captured a pair of graded stakes, compiled a 5-4-0-1 record and earned $588,670, trained by Rusty Arnold. Consigned by Mayberry Farm, Agent, to the 2022 OBS Spring Sale, she went through the ring after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5.  watch her under tack video     Spring Sale walking video
