Saturday results: Vino Rosso multiple tallies winners and stakes horses across the country
October 7, 2023
Vino Rosso continues to produce winners and stakes horses at an impressive clip, and Saturday was no exception as the leading First-Crop sire had a pair of winners, three graded stakes performers and one stakes performer at five tracks across the country.
His newest winner was first-time starter Molto Vino, who broke her maiden by 2 ¼-lengths with a powerful stretch run going five furlongs at Delta Downs [WATCH RACE]. The bay filly races for Ricky and Scott Lagrange and was bred by Coteau Grove Farms, LLC.
At Laurel Park, Cap Classique got her second win in as many starts with a dominant seven-length allowance win at 5 ½-furlongs. The chestnut filly, who sold for $145,000 this May, now has wins on both the main and turf tracks for owner DARRS Inc. She was bred by Cypress Creek Equine LLC and Three Diamonds Farm.
In stakes action, The Wine Steward, who had already won a pair of stakes prior to Saturday, was a very close second in Keeneland’s Breeders’ Futurity S. (G1) and could be headed to next month’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1).
Likewise, Wine Me Up, who finished second in the American Pharoah S. (G1) at Santa Anita, is headed to the same Breeders’ Cup race according to his trainer Bob Baffert.
At Aqueduct, Dancing Groom placed third to Into Mischief’s Timberlake in the Champagne S. (G1) over sloppy going in the stakes debut for the 2-year-old colt.
Back at Santa Anita, April Vintage was a good third after a rough trip in the Speakeasy S., which was won by Jimmy Creed’s Slider.
Vino Rosso is now third by progeny earnings on the First-Crop list, with $1,243,980. He leads the list by black type horses, with six, and by graded stakes horses and grade 1 horses, with four each.
