Repole Stable’s Stopchargingmaria scored her first graded stakes win in a laugher, taking the lead at the start of Aqueduct’s $250,000 Tempted Stakes (G3) never let it go, putting away the early speed and then bounding away to a 10-3/4 length victory. The 2-year-old Tale of the Cat filly, who won the first baby race at this year’s Saratoga meeting, is now 4-2-1-1 and has earned $308,000. After working an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show, she was sold for $220,000 by Woodford Thoroughbreds, Agent, at the 2013 OBS March Sale.  watch her under tack video
