Another Stakes-Winner for Verrazano
Promising young stallion Verrazano sired another stakes-winner on Saturday with a stylish victory at Gulfstream for Stirling Drive (2c Verrazano x La Presidenta, by Candy Stripes) in the $75,000 Juvenile Turf Stakes.
Trained by Milton Wolfson, Stirling Drive was stakes-placed earlier this year and forged clear to win the one mile turf contest by a length. He now has the overall record of two wins from five starts earning over $100,000 in prizemoney.
A $75,000 purchase from the OBS April 2YO Sale, Stirling Drive is the first winner for Grade II winner La Presidenta, who produced another colt by Verrazano this year.
