OBS Grad Key of Life Wins Gr. II Beaumont
Monday, April 17, 2023

    Flurry Racing Stables and Hoffman Family Racing’s Key of Life went right to the front at the start of Keeneland’s $400,000, Gr. II Beaumont Stakes and was never headed, holding off a late charge to score by a neck.

    It’s the third stakes victory for the 3-year-old daughter of Mo Town, a two-time OBS graduate, sold by K P Sales, Agent, at the 2021 October Selected Yearling Sale, and then purchased for $350,000 out of the Top Line Sales consignment at the 2022 Spring Sale after breezing an eighth in :9 4/5. Trained by Brad Cox, she has compiled an 8-5-0-3 career record and earned $633,275. 

    Paradise Farms Corp., David Staudacher, Skychai Racing and Angelo Carlesimo’s Gaslight Dancer saved ground early in Sunday’s $246,269 Palisades Stakes at Keeneland, then swung out for the drive, took over a furlong out and was best by a length and a half at the wire. Fellow OBS graduate Chiringo (March ’22) checked in third.

    It’s the first stakes win for the graded stakes placed 3-year-old colt by City of Light, purchased for $260,000 out of the Julie Davies consignment at the 2022 OBS Spring Sale after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5. He’s now 5-2-1-0 for trainer Mike Maker and has earned $282,554.
