Rontos Racing Stable Corp.’s Wildcat Lily chased fellow OBS graduate Dreaming of Susie (October ’10) to the top of the stretch in Calder’s $150,000 Azalea Stakes (G3), took a slim lead a furlong from home and held on gamely and won by a neck. That’s two straight stakes wins for the two time OBS graduate, sold first as a weanling by Mecco Sales (Mary Ellen Coenen), Agent, at the 2010 OBS Fall Mixed Sale, then resold for $20,000 by Blue River Bloodstock, Agent, at the 2011 August Yearling Sale. Her first graded stakes win leaves the 3-year-old Florida-bred filly by D’wildcat 16-5-3-1 with $233,065 in earnings.
