Under Control is one of our all time favorites and today, as a seven year old he won the Lure Stakes in Saratoga. He has been so consistent throughout his career, starting as a late three year old and winning allowance races and placed in Stakes races (including Grade III’s), but this was his first Stake win. He is bred by one of the top Brazilian Studs and owned now by Live Oak Plantation. Congratulations to them.
We also had some other Stakes action today with Latique finishing 3rd in the Soaring Softly Stakes at Gulfstream Park and Eastern Belle finishing 2nd (again) in the Grade III Waya Stakes at Saratoga. I say again as this is her 6th second place finish in ten starts.
