Jockey Justin Stein leads Outadore to victory at the Woodstock Stakes in Woodbine.
Jockey Justin Stein doubled in stakes action this weekend in Woodbine when Wesley Ward-trained Outadore won the $ 125,000 Woodstock Stakes for three-year-olds on Sunday afternoon.
“I’m lucky to be on the right horse on the right day,” said Stein, who on Saturday also won the first stakes for conditioner Michael Trombetta with Star Shoot winner Can’t Buy Love.
At Woodstock, Stein had positioned Outadore in midfield before sending the Outwork colt into the race three times in the corner and clearly stepping down the track to win in 1: 09.77 over six stadiums on the tapeta.
Outadore paid $ 5.90 for the win as an easy second pick to Jaxon Traveler, who appeared briefly in the lead at the start and finished second, 1-1 / 4 lengths behind the winner. Ward also took the third money when Chasing Artie closed from behind under Kazushi Kimura. This was followed by Sky’s Not Falling, Master Spy, Derzkii and Pacesetter Saturday George (: 23.21,: 45.82).
“It broke sharply, it broke hard, but we ran out early and overtook us,” said Stein. “He settled in at the back and when I called him he really kicked. He’s dug himself in, he’s a runner. He is a beautiful horse. “
After winning the Animal Kingdom Stakes at Turfway Park at the end of March, Outadore is now starting its second season as a pair. Owned by Breeze Easy LLC, the Kentucky-bred dog ranked third in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf last year and now has four wins from six career starts and more than half a million dollars in cash receipts.
