Tom R. Durant’s Run Classic (Runhappy – Pledge Pin) led a 1-2-3 OBS sweep of Saturday’s $125,000 Gulfstream Park Sprint Stakes, rallying wide into the stretch, running past the leaders and drawing away to score by 3-1/4 lengths over OBS Spring Sale grad Candy Man Rocket (Candy Ride (ARG) – Kenny Lane). OBS October grad Loco Abarrio (Valiant Minister – Ballyhoo Moon) was a nose back in third. It’s the first stakes victory for the 6-year-old son of Runhappy, purchased by Tom Durant for $475,000 out of the Pick View consignment at the 2022 OBS March Sale after speeding an Under Tack quarter in :20 3/5. Now 12-5-2-1 for trainer Jose D’Angelo, he has earned $405,767 to date.  watch his under tack video        March Sale walking video

Aaron Sones’ Lemon Muffin (Collected – Pelt) picked a fine spot to break her maiden, coming from off the pace, taking over a furlong out and winning the Oaklawn’s $400,000 Honeybee Stakes (G3) by 3-1/2 lengths. Breaking through after four consecutive second place finishes, the 3-year-old filly by OBS graduate Collected, trained by D. Wayne Lukas, is now 6-1-4-0 and has earned $305,250. At the 2023 OBS Spring Sale, she was purchased out of the Dark Star Thoroughbreds consignment for $140,000 by Bruno DeBerdt, Agent, after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat. watch her under tack video        Spring Sale walking video
