White Abarrio Upsets Gr. I Whitney
Sunday, August 6, 2023

  C Two Racing Stable and Antonio Pagnano’s White Abarrio (Race Day – Catching Diamonds) sat just off the lead in Saturday’s $1-million, Gr. I Whitney Stakes at Saratoga, moved to take command at the quarter pole and drew away in the stretch to score by 6 1/4 lengths.

    It’s the second Gr. I stakes victory for the 4-year-old colt, winner of the Florida Derby at three. A two-time OBS graduate, he was sold by Summerfield (Francis & Barbara Vanlangendonck), Agent, at the 2020 Winter Mixed Sale and then purchased for $40,000 out of the Nice and Easy Thoroughbreds consignment at the 2021 March Sale after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5. Now trained by Richard E. Dutrow Jr., he has compiled a 14-6-1-3 career record and earned $1,826,350.

    Earlier in the Whitney undercard, Clark O. Brewster, L. William Heiligbrodt and Corinne Heiligbrodt’s Cogburn (Not This Time – In A Jif) overcame a stumbling start in the $300,000, Gr. III Troy Stakes, rallied down the lane and was up in deep stretch by win by three-quarters of a length. Coming in on the heels of consecutive stakes victories at Lone Star, the 4-year-old colt by Not This Time is now 11-6-2-0 with earnings $591,710 for trainer Steve Asmussen. Consigned to the 2021 OBS Spring Sale by Pick View LLC, Agent, he was sold for $150,000 after turning in an Under Tack quarter in :20 3/5.
