Next Question wins Woodbine’s Nearctic Stakes

Three Diamonds Farm’s Next Question took the early lead in the $501,200 Nearctic Stakes (G1) at Woodbine Sunday, and refused to surrender it until he crossed the wire with a half-length victory. Fellow OBS graduate Bear Tough Tiger (April ’10, August ’09) finished another half a length back in third. It’s the second straight win and first stakes score for the lightly raced 4-year-old gelding by Stormy Atlantic, consigned by Leprechaun Racing, Agent, to the 2010 OBS April Sale. The win gives him a 7-3-1-1 record and earnings of $403,013. watch his under tack video
