Adare Manor Romps in Gr. II Santa Maria
Sunday, April 30, 2023

    In a reprise of their March 31 meeting, Michael Lund Petersen’s Adare Manor and fellow OBS graduate Bellamore (April ’20) finished one-two in the $200,000, Gr. II Santa Maria Stakes on Saturday at Santa Anita. The 4-year-old daughter of Uncle Mo went right to the lead at the start, set a measured pace, then drew off in the final sixteenth to score by 4 1/2 lengths. A graded stakes-winner at three, the 4-year-old daughter of Uncle Mo, trained by Bob Baffert, is now 10-4-4-0 and has earned $501,600.     

    At the 2021 OBS June Sale, she breezed an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5 and was purchased for $375,000 out of the Julie Davies consignment by Donato Lanni, Agent.

    George Krikorian’s War Like Goddess rated in hand just off the pace in Keeneland’s $297,500, Gr. III Bewitch Stakes, took command turning for home and was best by a length and a half at the wire. It’s her eighth graded stakes win and third straight score in the Bewitch, leaving her with a 14-10-1-2 record and earnings of $2,158,184 for trainer Bill Mott. 

    The 6-year-old daughter of English Channel was consigned to the 2019 OBS June Sale by Hemingway Racing and Training Stables, and sold for $30,000 after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5.
