Pletcher grabs both Champagne and Frizette Stakes

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Trainer Todd Pletcher swept the $400,000 stakes for 2-year-olds Saturday at Belmont Park with undefeated Shanghai Bobby and Dreaming of Julia.

Of the two winners, Shanghai Bobby was the more impressive in the Champagne, easily beating Goldencents by five lengths for his fourth victory.

"He's tenacious," Pletcher said. "He has all the tools."

Rosie Napravnik was aboard as the colt ran the mile in 1:35.55, paying $5.30 to win.

Fortify was third, followed by Archwarrior, Micromanage and Chief Havoc.

Dreaming of Julia stretched her winning streak to three with the win by a head over My Happy Face in the four-horse Frizette for fillies.
