Power Squeeze (Adam Coglianese)

Lea Farms, LLC’s Power Squeeze (Union Rags – Callmethesqueeze) is on her way to the Kentucky Oaks (G1) after capturing the $250,000 Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2). After bumping with a rival on the first turn, she relaxed off the pace, circled horses on the turn, wore down the leaders in the stretch and scored by a length. It’s the fourth straight win and first graded stakes victory for the 3-year-old filly by Union Rags, purchased for $90,000 out of the Halcyon Hammock consignment at the 2023 OBS Spring Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in:10 1/5. Trained by Jorge Delgado, she’s now 6-4-1-0 and has earned $337,450.  watch her under tack video    Spring  Sale walking video

It’s the second graded stakes win for the 4-year-old son of Gun Runner, trained by Antonio Sano, who has compiled a 19-4-5-3 career record and earned $653,585. At the 2022 OBS June Sale, he breezed an Under Tack eighth in :10 3/5 and was purchased for $70,000 out of the de Meric Sales consignment. watch his under tack video       June Sale walking video
