Gary Barber, Terry Hamilton and Brian Lynch’s Tobys Heart relaxed off the pace in the early going of the $199,835 Unbridled Sidney Stakes at Churchill Downs on Wednesday, came wide into the stretch, rallied to catch fellow OBS graduate Change of Control (October ’17) in the final strides and was best by a neck at the wire.
It’s the fourth stakes win for the 4-year-old graded stakes-placed daughter of OBS graduate Jack Milton, consigned by Bold Arrow Thoroughbreds to the 2020 OBS March Sale, and sold for $45,000 after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. Trained by Brian Lynch, she’s now 12-5-1-2 and has earned $647,495 to date.

FIRST WINNER FOR GIRVIN - John C. Oxley’s Devious Dame tracked the pace in her debut for trainer Norm Casse on Wednesday in a $71,943 Maiden Special test at Churchill Downs, took command a furlong from home and drew away to score by 5 1/2 lengths. The first winner for her sire, Girvin, and the first winner for any Florida freshman sire in 2022, the 2-year-old Florida-bred filly earned a check for $35,560. She was purchased for $240,000 out of the Ocala Stud consignment at the 2022 OBS March Sale after breezing a quarter in :20 4/5 at the Under Tack Show.
