Spring Sale graduate Multiplier takes the Illinois Derby

American Equistock’s Multiplier jumped straight from a maiden victory into Hawthorne’s $250,000 Illinois Derby (G3) on Saturday and took the rise in class in stride, rallying from off the pace and getting up in the final yards to win by a head.  Now 4-2-1-1 for trainer Brendan Walsh, the 3-year-old colt by The Factor has earned $187,310 to date. Consigned by Scanlon Training & Sales, Agent to the 2016 OBS April Sale, he turned in an eighth in :10 2/5 at the Under Tack Show. watch his under tack video

Speedway Stable LLC’s Collected tracked the early pace in Santa Anita’s $200,000 Californian Stakes (G2) on Saturday, took charge a half mile from home and cruised from there to a 3-3/4 length victory over fellow OBS graduate Follow Me Crev (June’ 14). It’s the second straight win and third graded stakes score for the 4-year-old son of City Zip, trained by Bob Baffert, leaving him with a 9-6-1-0 record and $600,500 in earnings. After breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5,  he was sold for $170,000 to Speedway Stable at the 2015 OBS March Sale by SGV Thoroughbreds (Steven Venosa), Agent. watch his under tack video
