Danny J. Chen’s Yorkiepoo Princess continued her dominance of the 3-year-old filly division at Aqueduct this winter by coming from off the pace, taking command a furlong from home and winning the $150,000 Busher Stakes by a length and three quarters. Fellow OBS graduate Tiz Rae Anna (April ’16) checked in third. It’s the third straight stakes win at the meeting for the Florida-bred daughter of Kantharos, trained by Edward Barker, now 7-4-0-0 with earnings of $244,811. A two time OBS graduate, she was sold by Summerfield (Francis & Barbara Vanlangendonck), Agent, at the 2015 August Sale before her purchase by Mr. Chen for $8,000 out of the Niall Brennan Stables consignment at the 2016 April Sale after an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat. watch her under tack video 

Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s Partly Mocha is better than ever at the age of eight, rallying down the stretch of the $50,000 Bucharest Turf Sprint Stakes at Sam Houston Downs and catching front running fellow OBS graduate American Sailor (April ’14) in the final strides and scoring by a neck. It’s the second straight stakes win for the gelded son of Half Ours, purchased for $47,000 from Halcyon Hammock Farm, Agent, at the 2011 OBS March Sale. Trained by Mike Maker, he’s now 36-9-8-7 and has earned $445,392 to date. watch his under tack video
