Tacticus impresses in Birdstone Stakes


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Trainer Graham Motion said the more distance the better for his European import Tacticus shortly after entries were drawn for Wednesday’s 1 3/4-mile Birdstone Stakes. And his prediction was right on the money after Tacticus, benefitting from a patient ride by Joel Rosario, rallied to a 2 1/2-length victory over Turco Bravo in Thursday’s main event at Saratoga.
