CRIMSON STAG RUNS SECOND IN LAFAYETTE(G3)
Crimson Stag, West Point's three-year-old son of Glitterman, ran second in the $100,000 Lafayette Stakes(G3) at Keeneland on April 10th. A three time stakes winner in Louisiana, Crimson Stag was making his first stakes start against open company.
Trainer Dallas Stewart said, "The winner kind of ran everyone off their feet, but I was real impressed with the way Crimson Stag battled past the odds-on favorite for second. We had a tough go in our turf experiment last race, and you always have a little bit of worry if something like that will throw a horse for a loop. This colt just loves to compete though, and he will run hard no matter where you run him. He's a real battler. We should continue to have a lot of fun with him."
An $80,000 purchase as a two-year-old, Crimson Stag has now earned more than $243,000 from ten career starts.
Crimson Stag will next be pointed for either the $100,000 Matt Winn Stakes on May 14th at Churchill Downs or the $100,000 Hirsch Jacobs Stakes(G3) on May 21st at Pimlico.
