Top Juveniles to Collide in Birdonthewire
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (September 27, 2012) – A field of eight 2-year-olds, led by the triumvirate of David Melin and Laurie Plesa’s Grade 3 Sapling Stakes winner Brave Dave, Rosa Taveras’ Seacliff Stakes hero Sr. Quisqueyano, and Gilbert Campbell’s two-time stakes conqueror Two T’s At Two B, will line up for a strong renewal of the $100,000 Birdonthewire Stakes at Calder Casino & Race Course Saturday.
Trained by Eddie Plesa, Jr., Brave Dave made his career debut at Calder in late June, scoring a 1 ¼-length front-running victory. The son of Put It Back was subsequently shipped north where he ran a respectable fourth in the Grade 2 Sanford Stakes at Saratoga before returning to post a three-quarter length win in the Sapling at Monmouth Park.
