Closing Range, a 4yo filly and Lane’s End Sales grad from the first crop of the brilliant AFTER MARKET, launched a powerful late rate to get up and collect a third black-type win in the $100,000 Osunitas S. at Del Mar July 20.
Owned and bred by St. George Farm and trained by Phil Oliver, the dark bay miss also won last year’s G3 La Prevoyante H. at Calder and Twin Light S. at Monmouth.
Now a winner of five of 10 lifetime starts, Closing Range typifies the offspring of AFTER MARKET: classy, consistent and blessed with a smart turn of foot.
AFTER MARKET’s runners also include the five-time stakes winner Lady of Fifty, another filly from his first crop who has shone in the tough So Cal circuit. Heroine of the G2 Bayakoa H. last December, Lady of Fifty has in 2013 placed in the G1 Vanity H., G2 Marjorie L. Everett H. and G2 Santa Maria S.
AFTER MARKET’s third graded/group winner from his first crop comes in the form of Gocek, yet another Lane’s End Sales grad whose wins include this season’s G2 Classico La Copa.
AFTER MARKET sophomores include the Japanese standout Storm Jaguar, a $275,000 OBSAPR grad, and the son of Storm Cat already has a pair of winners from his latest crop, including the maiden special winners Stormquility and Chairman Crooks.
As part of a deep sire class, AFTER MARKET is the:
#4 third-crop sire by stakes winners
#8 third-crop sire by cumulative earnings
#6 third-crop sire by graded stakes winners
#6 third-crop sire by graded horses
#7 third-crop sire by black-type horses
AFTER MARKET – One of the best young sons of Storm Cat on the market today!
