Desormeaux sweeps Stallion Stakes


ELMONT, N.Y. - Jockey Kent Desormeaux rode the winners of both divisions of Sunday's New York Stallion Stakes, first guiding Laurentide Ice to a four-length score in the Cupecoy's Joy for fillies and then coming back to ride Dr. V's Magic to a three-length win in the Spectacular Bid for colts and geldings.

Both races, restricted to 3-year-old progeny of New York-based stallions, were worth $75,000 and run at one mile over Belmont's main track.

In the Spectacular Bid, Dr. V's Magic and favored Stunt Man moved in tandem at the three-eighths pole, but Dr. V's Magic turned back Stunt Man in midstretch en route to his open-length score. Dr. V's Magic ($10.60), a full-brother to Empire Classic winner Organizer, ran a mile in 1:36.53.

Dr. Vs Magic is owned by his breeders, Majesty Stud LLC, and trained by Dominic Galluscio.

In the Cupecoy's Joy, Laurentide Ice sat off dueling leaders City in the Clouds and Zip of Fools through six furlongs in 1:10.57 before taking command at the eighth pole under Desormeaux. Smokin Sarah rallied to be second, two lengths ahead of City in the Clouds.

Laurentide Ice, who won the Fifth Avenue division of the stallion sakes at Aqueduct last fall, is trained by Mark Hennig for owner/breeder Camelia Casby.

Laurentide Ice ($6.40), a daughter of Intidab, covered the mile in 1:37.94.
