Klaravich Stables Inc. & William H. Lawrence’s Currency Swap turned for home with only fellow OBS graduate Doctor Chit (March ’11) to catch in the $200,000 Amsterdam Stakes (G2) at Saratoga, and the 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by High Cotton drove past him to win by a length and a three quarters, with Unbridled’s Note (March ’11) a neck back in third. Three for three at the Spa, his other graded stakes win came in last year’s Hopeful Stakes (G1). Now 7-4-2-0 with earnings of $448,300, the two time OBS graduate was sold as a weanling by Summerfield, Agent for breeder Stonecliff Farm at the 2009 OBS Fall Mixed Sale then consigned by de Meric Sales, Agent, to the 2011 OBS March Sale. watch his under tack video
