Darby Dan grad springs to stakes victory at Saratoga
RSS Feeds Thursday, August 14, 2014

Darby Dan graduate Spring to the Sky rocketed to his third consecutive win in the $100,000 Troy Stakes over the main track at Saratoga on August 13th.

The dark bay speedster, who was bred, foaled, raised and sold by Darby Dan, was winning his second sprint stakes this year at Saratoga, following a July 20th victory in the $100,000 Lucky Coin Stakes on the turf. In his prior start, he came within a tick of the Belmont inner course record, when he zipped six furlongs in 1:07.05 on June 29th.

In the Troy, run on the sloppy main track after rains pounded Saratoga Springs, Spring to the Sky broke alertly under Javier Castellano, and raced right to the lead, setting all the fractions of :21.68, :45 and :57.33, before hitting the wire in 1:04.01. The Troy was Spring to the Sky's first start on dirt since 2012.

Bred in Kentucky by Phillips Racing Partnership, Darby Dan sold Spring to the Sky to Anthony McCarthy at the 2010 Saratoga yearling sale. Racing for McCarthy and trained by Bruce Brown, he has compiled a record of 23-6-4-2, and earnings of $412,700.
