Klaravich Stable

A Heater In the Turf Classic

Six months ago, Klaravich Stables' Domestic Spending (GB) (Kingman {GB}) was the leader of a very strong group of turf sophomores, having won the valuable Saratoga Derby over the summer before a year-ending defeat of Smooth Like Strait (Midnight Lute) in the GI Hollywood Derby. But while that one was given his winter's rest, Robert and Lawana Low's Colonel Liam (Liam's Map), a progressive sort who finished within three-quarters of a length of Domestic Spending at the Spa last summer, had assumed 'King of the Hill' status, courtesy of a...

Search Results Outslugs Miss Brazil In Busher

Search Results (Flatter) gave her sire a second 3-year-old stakes winner Saturday, outgaming pacesetting Miss Brazil (Palace Malice) in the final furlong to take Saturday's $250,000 Busher S. at Aqueduct and earning 50 points on the Road to the Kentucky Oaks in the process. Sent off an easy-in-the market 2-1 second favorite after touching 3-2 early on, Search Results was put into the race by Javier Castellano and took up pace-pressing duties from second as Miss Brazil led them along through controlled splits of :24.53 and :49.64. The duo raced...

Capo Kane Back for More in Withers

Bing Cherry Racing and Leonard Liberto's Capo Kane (Street Sense), a romping 6 1/4-length winner of the one-mile Jerome S. at Aqueduct Jan. 1, will look to add a furlong and a graded race to his resume in the GIII Withers S. at Aqueduct Saturday. Trained by Harold Wyner, the bay colt was runner-up in his seven-furlong debut at Parx Oct. 28. He graduated by a front-running 4 1/2 lengths going one mile and 70 yards at Parx Nov. 25 and had everything his own way when loose on the...

Domestic Spending Flies Home to Hollywood Derby Score

Saturday's GI Hollywood Derby at Del Mar was a tiebreaker of sorts. Since the closure of Hollywood Park in 2013 and with the race transferred to the seaside venue, the locals (California Chrome, Chiropractor and Mo Forza) and ship-ins (Annals of Time, Mo Town and Raging Bull {Fr}) had split the six runnings. Following a pair of scratches, seven California-based sophomores took on a formidable foursome from the East Coast, and when the dust had settled after nine very entertaining furlongs, Klaravich Stables' Domestic Spending (GB) (Kingman {GB}) had tilted...

New Stakes Winner for Into Mischief in Breeders' Cup Friday Opener

Highly Motivated (Into Mischief) led home a 1-3 finish and became the 81st black-type winner for his sire, establishing a new track record in the opening race of Breeders' Cup weekend. Quick Tempo (Tapizar) won the break and set a slick early pace, as Javier Castellano had the favorite settled from a midfield fifth while glued to the inside. Pinching ground on the turn, Highly Motivated popped off the fence and went on the attack three wide off the home corner, grabbed the front-runner at the sixteenth pole and pulled...

Into Mischief Filly Handles Winners at Belmont

4th-Belmont, $63,050, Alw, 10-11, (NW1$X), 3yo/up, f/m, 6f, 1:09.40, ft, 2 3/4 lengths. MOTIVATED SELLER (f, 3, Into Mischief--Coup {SW, $132,637}, by Empire Maker) was spotting plenty of experience to her competition, but performed like an old pro Sunday to go two-for-two off a lengthy lay-off. A six-length debut scorer at Gulfstream Jan. 12, the bay had been based with trainer Chad Brown's perceived B or C string at Monmouth Park, but was still pounded down to 11-10 shipping up for this. Away on top, Motivated Seller was passed heading...

Selflessly Pips Sweet Melania in Lake George

For the considerable success he's achieved on the New York circuit and particularly on the turf, it wasn't until 2015 that trainer Chad Brown unsaddled the winner of the GIII Lake George S. for the first time (Mrs McDougal {Medaglia d'Oro}). The stable's lone chance in Friday's renewal, Selflessly (More Than Ready), was pegged as a 6-1 chance on David Aragona's morning line, but the tote read a remarkable 14-1 at post time and those who ignored her paid dearly, as the Maryland-bred was up in the final jump to...

Dansili Filly Holds On in Belmont Debut

7th-Belmont, $64,000, Msw, 6-13, 3yo/up, f/m, 1mT, 1:34.08, fm. COST BENEFIT (GB) (f, 3, Dansili {GB}--Forgotten Dreams {Ire}, by Olden Times {GB}) took the lion's share of the pari-mutuel action at 8-5 and got her nose down ahead of her Peter Brant-owned stable companion Dovima (Union Rags) to open her account at first asking. A bit keyed up in the preliminaries, Cost Benefit broke alertly and aggressively tugged Joel Rosario to the front through an opening quarter-mile in :23.02 and a half in :46.51. Still traveling strongly, but not overracing,...
