Lawrence’s Currency Swap, hero of last summer’s Hopeful Stakes (G1) at Saratoga defeating fellow OBS graduates Trinniberg and Derby winner I’ll Have Another, led from gate to wire on Saturday and won the $83,300 You and I Stakes at Belmont Park by three quarters of a length over 2010 OBS August graduate Brian. The 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by High Cotton is a two time OBS graduate, sold as a weanling by Summerfield, Agent for breeder Stonecliff Farm at the 2009 OBS Fall Mixed Sale, and then consigned by de Meric Sales, Agent, to the 2011 OBS March Sale. His second stakes victory gives him a 5-3-1-0 record and earnings of $248,300.  under tack link
