Hierro wins Derby Trial

Stonestreet Stables LLC’s Hierro found the sloppy track and one mile distance to his liking in the $232,600 The Cliff’s Edge Derby Trial Stakes (G3), rallying from off the pace on the outside and drawing off to his first stakes win by a length and a half, with fellow OBS graduate Stealcase (March ’11, August ’10) checking in third. The 3-year-old colt by Hard Spun, who could be heading for the Preakness (G1) in three weeks, was sold by Scanlon Training Center, Agent, for $350,000 at the 2011 OBS March Sale. He’s now 6-2-1-0 and has earned $186,966. under tack link
