Blue Heaven Farm’s Starship Jubilee left no doubt she was best in Gulfstream’s $150,000 Suwannee River Stakes (G3) on Saturday, taking command coming off the turn and drawing off to a 3-1/4 length victory. Fellow OBS graduate Tapit Today (June ’17) checked in in third. That’s six graded stakes wins for the 7-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Indy Wind, a two time OBS graduate, sold by The Acorn at the 2014 August Yearling Sale then consigned by Halcyon Hammock Farm to the 2015 April Sale where she went through the ring after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5. Trained by Kevin Attard, she’s now 34-16-5-3 and has earned $1,353,667. watch her under tack video

Rockingham Ranch’s Billy Batts saved ground early in Friday’s $84,750 Baffle Stakes at Santa Anita, came out for the drive, reached the lead a furlong from home and was best by a length and a half over fellow OBS graduate Rager (June ’19, April ’19). It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old son of City Zip, second to fellow 2019 OBS March graduate Structor in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1). Now 8-2-3-1 for trainer Peter Miller, he has earned $302,560 to date. He was purchased for $200,000 out of the Wavertree Stables consignment at the March Sale after turning in an Under Tack quarter in :20 4/5. watch his under tack video
