OBS graduates had a good day at Saratoga on Monday, with a pair of 2-year-olds winning at first asking, a stakes winning filly scoring her third straight win and a victory in the featured stakes race.
William C. Schettine’s Rosa Salvaje, overlooked at 19-1 in the featured $100,000 Shakespeare Caress Stakes, took over with a furlong to go and held on gamely to win her first stakes race by a neck. Idle since winning her only other start this year in January at Gulfstream, the 4-year-old daughter of Chapel Royal is now 12-4-2-0 and has earned $156,555. She was sold for $13,000 by Woodside Ranch, Agent, at the 2009 OBS August Sale.
Two youngsters from the 2012 March Sale scored in their first trips to the post. In the fifth race, Let’s Go Stable’s Top Tier Lass ran off and hid in a 5-1/2 furlong turf test, winning by seven lengths in a quick 1:03 1/5. The daughter of Street Boss was sold for $60,000 by Halcyon Hammock Farm, Agent. watch her under tack video
Two races earlier, Blue Devil Racing Stable’s Fly Bye Pomeroy came from off the pace to win by a length in his first try. The Florida-bred colt by Pomeroy was consigned to OBS March by Scanlon Training Center, Agent. watch his under tack video
The day’s second race, a 6-1/2 furlong allowance race, went to Saul and Max Kupferberg’s Sunny Desert, scoring her third straight victory. The stakes winning daughter of Wild Desert was sold by Quiet Time Farm, Agent, at the 2009 OBS October Sale.
