Keeneland Presents American Graded Stakes Standings: Lewis Bay Adds To Brown’s Banner Year

Lewis Bay returned to the winner's circle in her first start back in 13 months, taking the G3 Rampart by 1 1/4 lengths

Lewis Bay showed no signs of rust when she charged to a 1 ¼-length victory in the Grade 3 Rampart Stakes at Gulfstream Park last weekend.

The race marked the first start in 13 months for the 4-year-old daughter of Bernardini, whose last start prior to the Rampart was a second-place finish in the G3 Comely at Aqueduct in November 2016. Lewis Bay had shown strong form in the past though, winning the G2 Demoiselle and G2 Gazelle, in addition to finishing third in the G1 Kentucky Oaks.

The victory by Lewis Bay in the Rampart provided trainer Chad Brown with his 35th graded stakes winner this year, keeping him securely at the top of the American Graded Stakes Standings trainer list. Brown's 35 individual graded stakes winners – which have won a total of 47 graded stakes – place him well ahead of Todd Pletcher, who remains in second with 20 individual graded stakes winners.

Just two graded stakes winners behind Pletcher is Bob Baffert, who has 18 individual graded stakes winners. Hot on Baffert's heels is Mark Casse, who also has 18 individual graded stakes winners. However, Baffert's graded stakes runners have captured 30 graded stakes this year, compared to 26 for Casse's stable.
