2020 PA-bred champion Wait For It surged late under Anthony Nunez to win the $100,000 Hard Spun S. at Presque Isle Downs for the second consecutive year.
It was also the second straight 2021 Stakes victory for the son of Diamond B Farm stallion Uptowncharlybrown. He previously scored in the Page McKenney H. downstate at Parx on April 27.
Bred by Fantasy Lane Stable and trained by Edward J. Coletti, Wait For It has now earned $619,228 for owners Uptowncharlybrown Stud LLC. He’s found the winner’s circle a total of 12 times in his 30-race career
5-year-old gelding Give Me the Lute set a blistering fast pace, opened up on the competition turning for home, and held off a late challenge from race-favorite Brandothebartender to pick up his first career stakes victory in Saturday’s feature at Golden Gate Fields in Berkley, Calif., the $50,000 Albany Stakes at five furlongs on turf for 3-year-olds and upward.
Give Me the Lute, who went 21.01 and 44.28 for the first two quarter-mile splits, stopped the clock for five panels in a swift 56.26 seconds. The son of Diamond B Farm’s Boisterous was ridden to victory by Irving Orozco. Winner trainer Andy Mathis picked up his third consecutive Albany Stakes win in Saturday’s marquee race, having won the 2019 and 2020 editions with Mike Tiznow.
4-5 favorite Brandothebartender, winner of the Crystal Water and Sensational Star Stakes at Santa Anita earlier this year, sat at the back of the field before producing a fast rally in the final furlong to complete the exacta. Bettor Trip Nick checked in third. Give Me the Lute paid $6.60 to win, $3.20 to place, and $2.20 to win.
Give Me the Lute races for Rod and Wendy Hogan, who acquired the gallant gelding in 2019. With the Albany Stakes win, Give Me the Lute holds a lifetime record of five wins, two seconds, and two third-place finishes, with career earnings of just shy of $190,000.

The courageous and durable 6-year-old is now an 11 time winner of $559,828. In addition to the Page McKenney, Wait For It also triumphed in a pair of 2020 stakes – Storm Cat at Parx and the Hard Spun at Presque Isle.

Diamond B is home to veteran stalwarts Uptowncharlybrown, Talent Search and Boisterous along with a pair of the most promising young stallions in the Keystone state.
Rowayton, a Grade 1 son of super-sire Into Mischief joins the Diamond B roster for 2021 and is perhaps the most exciting stallion to retire in Pennsylvania in recent years. He began his career with an ultra-impressive juvenile debut win at Del Mar followed by Grade 1-placings behind champion Game Winner in the Del Mar Futurity and American Pharoah Stakes.
Speightstown is among the hottest sires in 2020 and his highly-promising Graded-placed son Eastwoodwill see his first yearlings go through the ring in 2021.
The Distorted Humor son Boisterous ranks as Pennsylvania’s #7 sire after a strong 2020 season. Loud Mouth, winner of the Cary Grant S. and Del Mar Oaks (G1) runner-up California Kook are among the 2020 blackytipe runners by the striking son of Distorted Humor.
Uptowncharlybrownand Talent Search have also been a fixtures near the top of the Pennsylvania stallion ranks. The former is the sire of new 2020 stakes winner Wait For It, winner of the Hard Spun Stakes at Presque Isle Downs while Talent Search again ranks among the Top 10 stallions in the state.
Rowayton is one of the most exciting stallion prospects to retire to Pennsylvania. Diamond B Farm is providing the opportunity to earn a lifetime breeding right in this Grade 1 son of super-sire Into Mischief.
The total cost is $12,500, including a $500 enrollment fee.

Today, at their 100-acre Diamond Be Farm in Mohrsville, Pa., about 16 miles north of Reading, the Broks still do it all. They stand stallions, breed and foal mares, offer layups, rehabilitation, bloodstock services and sales preparations.
Glenn and Becky Brok announced Nov. 25 that Rowayton, a grade 1-placed son of leading sire Into Mischief, has been retired and will enter stud at their Diamond B Farm near Mohrsville, Pa, in 2021. The 4-year-old will enter stud for an introductory fee of $5,000.
Raced by Larry Best’s OXO Equine, Rowayton won his first start in a maiden special at Del Mar and in his second start ran second to future champion Game Winner in the Del Mar Futurity (G1). He followed up with a third in the American Pharoah Stakes (G1).
At 3, Rowayton won an allowance race at Belmont Park in near-track record time and went on to finish third in the Dwyer Stakes (G3).
“Rowayton displayed his brilliant speed winning at Belmont Park where he was only two-fifths over the track record blazing 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:14.94 when he was trained by Don Chatlos,” said Glenn Brok. “His sire is enjoying incredible success and being from the family of champion Proud Spell, we feel like he will be a very important addition to the stallion ranks in the Mid-Atlantic region.”
Bred in Kentucky by Allen Poindexter, Rowayton is out of the Indian Charlie mare Rosemonde, who is a half sister to multiple Canadian champion Miss Mischief and multiple stakes-placed winner Mind Out.
The Broks said an incentive plan for breeders to earn a lifetime breeding right will be announced soon.
Thomsen Racing’s Loud Mouth tracked the leaders early, then fired his best shot in the lane under leading rider Abel Cedillo and came away with a three-quarter length score in the seventh running of the Cary Grant Stakes Sunday at Del Mar near San Diego, Calif.
The 4-year-old colt by Boisterous rang up his first stakes score in the Cal-bred offering, besting six rivals in 1:22.34 for the seven panels.
It was the second win on the day for Cedillo, who now has 18 firsts in 11 days of racing. Loud Mouth is trained by Steve Knapp.
Finishing second was Jay Em Ess Stable’s Take the One O One, while Reddam Racing’s Rookie Mistake was three and a half lengths farther back. The 11-10 favorite, West Point Thoroughbreds, Barker, Sandbrook, et al’s Galilean finished fourth.
“I kept experimenting with him to find out what and how far he wanted to run,” Knapp said of Loud Mouth. “He got some real questionable rides, several of them, but I knew this horse could run. We went the seven today and worked out and he ran huge. This horse has a big heart and when he gets to the lead or gets close, he runs. And he’s got a really nice way of moving. He’s a runner and this is a hell of a win.”
“I could tell they were going fast up front (:22.13, :44.94, 1:09.56), but I had my eye on the favorite (Galilean),” said Cedillo. “I was tracking him. When he made his move (on the turn), I moved with him. Then I went by him in the straight and went after the leader (Take the One O One). My horse had it and we got him.”
Loud Mouth paid $28.00, $10.60 and $7.00 for his tally. Take the One O One returned $4.80 and $3.60, while Rookie Mistake paid $6.80.
Boisterous stands at Diamond B Farm in Pennsylvania.
Wait For It continued his fall hot streak with an emphatic 2 1/4-length triumph in the Hard Spun Stakes at Presque Isle Downs, his second Stakes victory in his past three outings.
The son of Diamond B Farm’s stallion Uptowncharlybrown now has 4 victories in 2020, including the Storm Cat Stakes at Parx on September 7.
