Behemoth and Street Fight win
Dogwood Stable’s Street Fight, a son of the 2007 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, won a 1-mile and 70 yards race Sunday at Aqueduct. The 4-year-old bay gelding was trained in Aiken by Legacy Stable’s Brad Stauffer and Ron Stevens. Street Fight was purchased by Dogwood Stable for $200,000 at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton March Florida Two-Year-Olds in training Sale from the consignment of Breaking Point Farm. The Ontario-bred broke his maiden last fall while in the barn of Mike Keogh, but has since been transferred to the barn of Gary Contessa. Street Fight increased his bankroll to $65,513.
PTK’s Behemoth won a 1 1/16-mile race Friday at Laurel Park by 2 1/2-lengths. The dark bay son of 2000 European Horse of the Year Giant’s Causeway was conditioned by Dane Kobiskie, and was ridden to victory by Grant Whitacre. Behemoth was coming off a second place effort in his previous start on Dec. 6, a race also contested at the 1 1/16-mile distance. Behemoth was broken and trained in Aiken by Legacy Stable’s Brad Stauffer and Ron Stevens.
Multiple stakes winner Dance to Bristol placed second in Saturday’s What a Summer Stakes at Laurel Park. The 4-year-old chestnut filly is by the 2004 Eclipse Award winning Sprinter Speightstown, and was broken and trained by Tim and Cary Frommer.
