Two More OBS Grads Score at Saratoga
Sunday, July 17, 2022
    Reeves Thoroughbred Racing, Peter Searles and Patty Searles’ City Man relaxed off the pace in the early going of the $175,000, Gr. III Forbidden Apple Stakes, circled horses on the turn, rallied down the stretch to take charge a sixteenth out and eased away late to score by 2 3/4 lengths. It’s the first graded stakes win for the 5-year-old son of Mucho Macho Man, trained by Christophe Clement, now 22-6-4-3 with earnings of $653,050. Consigned to the 2019 OBS Spring Sale by Off the Hook LLC, Agent, he was sold to Reeves Thoroughbreds for $185,000 after breezing an eighth in :10 1/5 at the under tack show.

    Augustin Stable’s Empress Tigress is two for two and a stakes-winner after opening daylight in the stretch of the $150,000 Coronation Cup and holding off a late rally to score by half a length. The 3-year-old daughter of Classic Empire was purchased by Donato Lanni, Agent, for $410,000 out of the Golden Rock Thoroughbreds consignment at the 2021 OBS Spring Sale after turning in an Under Tack quarter in :20 2/5. Trained by Jonathan Thomas, she has earned $115,243.
