After a nice break from last year Wootton started back in July with a couple of good thirds, one in the Grade 3 Kent Stakes and another in the Bald Eagle Derby. He topped that yesterday with a nice win in the Virginia Derby (who we won with English Bee a couple of years ago). Thankfully they got the races over before the major storm came through. Again, patiently ridden by Jose Ortiz (Tuned earlier) he proved much the best. Congratulations to Madaket Stables.
We nearly had treble Stakes wins but Invincible Gal was out finished at the wire to finish second. She ran a terrific race though, very proud of her.
