Monday, July 10, 2023

    Paradise Farms Corp. and David Staudacher’s Me and Mr. C captured the $100,000 Jonathan B. Schuster Memorial Stakes on Saturday, coming from off the pace and getting up in the final strides to win by a nose. The 6-year-old Florida-bred son of Khozan, trained by Mike Maker, is now 32-9-6-5, with three stakes victories and earnings of $457,619. Consigned by Paul Sharp, Agent, to the 2019 OBS March Sale, he went through the ring after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5.  

    Lael Stables’ Love and Money was best by a head in Friday’s $100,000 Clarksville Handicap, swinging out for the drive and getting up in the final yards. It’s the first stakes win for the 5-year-old mare by More Than Ready, consigned by McKee Bloodstock, Agent, to the 2020 OBS June Stakes where she went through the ring after an Under Tack in eighth :10 flat. Trained by Cherie DeVaux, she has compiled a 10-4-2-0 record and earned $220,430. 

    Matt Kwiatkowski, Jason Kaylor and Roger D. Browning’s Nobody Listens successfully defended his title in the $100,000 Brickyard Stakes on Wednesday, setting the pace, opening daylight in the stretch and holding on gamely to win by a head. That’s three stakes victories for the 6-year-old son of Conveyance, purchased for $40,000 out of the Southern Chase Farm consignment at the 2020 OBS Spring Sale after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. Now 23-11-7-1 for trainer Tim Eggleston, he has earned $490,630. 

    Brian Lynch’s Hot Little Thing picked up her second stakes win in Wednesday’s $100,000 Checkered Flag Handicap, charging on the outside down the stretch and proving best by a neck at the wire. Trained by her owner, she’s now 8-5-1-1 with $225,730 in earnings. Consigned to the 2022 OBS March Sale by Bold Arrow Thoroughbreds, the 3-year-old daughter of Army Mule was sold for $80,000 after working an eighth in :10 flat at the Under Tack Show.
