More Stakes Success for Verrazano

Talented three year-old Stirling Drive (3g Verrazano x La Presidenta, by Candy Stripes) posted his second Black Type victory when taking out the $100,000 Not Surprising Stakes at Gulfstream on Saturday.

Trained by Milton Wolfson, Stirling Drive was a stakes-winner at the same track last year and added to his record with a determined neck win in the one mile feature on turf.

He now has the overall record of three wins from 14 starts earning over $180,000 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 also has a yearling colt by Verrazano.
