Congrats Adds US Black-Type 2

Monday, 17th October 2011

US Gr2-winning Vinery Stud shuttler & last year's US Champion 1st-Season sire Congrats (A.P.Indy-Praise, by Mr Prospector) added another US black-type success when his colt Oligarch (Congrats-For All Who Dream, by Eltish) scored by a head in the US$73,000 Listed Tropical Park Derby (9 furlongs on turf) for 3YOs at Calder in Miami. Oligarch (ridden by Daniel Centeno for trainer Rodolfo Garcia) defeated fellow colt Star Of Sarava (Sarava-J Star, by Arch) & the gelding Bringbackthemagic (Stormy Atlantic-Fulfilled Promise, by Red Ransom). Oligarch (a US$60,000 yearling at the 2009 Ocala Breeders August Sale & later a US$140,000 2YO at the 2010 Ocala Breeders March Sale) now has 3 wins & 2 placings from 8 starts for US$93,204 earnings.
