Battle Station turned in a a superlative performance in the $150,000 Bertram Bongard S. Sept. 22 at Belmont Park, drawing off in the stretch to win by 9 1/4-lengths in the first stakes start for the 2-year-old son of Warrior's Reward.

Leading almost every step of the way in the seven-furlong main track affair, Battle Station led by a length through the first half-mile before easily pulling away for an eye-catching win.

“My horse ran very good and I’d like to thank [trainer] Wesley [Ward] and the Ramseys [owners],” said winning rider Kendrick Carmouche.

Battle Station, winner of his debut on the Saratoga turf on Aug. 25, is now 2-for-2 and has earned $133,800 for Ken and Sarah Ramsey.

Bred by Lansdowne Thoroughbreds, Battle Station sold to his owners at the 2015 Keeneland November Breeding Stock sale. 

Battle Station is one of Warrior's Reward's three stakes horses of September and nine overall this year. He also had his top yearling of the year at the Keeneland auction with a $325,000 colt.
