A trio of weekend stakes winners

LA Thoroughbreds’ Sweet as You Are tried stakes company for the first time in the $101,500 Mrs Penny Stakes at Parx Racing on Saturday and rallied from off the pace, hit the front after three quarters and drew off to win by 3-1/2 lengths. The victory leaves her with a record of 30-7-0-5 and earnings of $246,244. She was sold for $55,000 by Michael Cooke, Agent, at the 2009 OBS April Sale. watch her under tack video

Wind River Stables’ Depeche Chat took charge of Kentucky Downs’ $60,000 Franklin-Simpson Stakes at the top of the stretch and rolled from there to a 6-1/2 length score, with fellow OBS graduate San Antone (April ’10) checking in third. It’s the first stakes victory for the 4-year-old Florida-bred gelding by Wildcat Heir, consigned first by breeder Michelle Redding to the 2009 OBS August Sale before bringing $85,000 when purchased out of the All In Sales (Tony Bowling) consignment at the 2010 OBS June Sale. Now 14-4-3-2, he has earned $160,787.  watch his under tack video
