Boucher Stable Kicks Off Va-Bred Stakes Day at Laurel By Winning the Brookemeade Stakes

Complete St. came from mid-pack and swept by the front runners in deep stretch to kick off Virginia-bred Stakes Day at Laurel Park Saturday afternoon (Sept. 26) with a victory in the $60,000 Brookemeade.  Fittingly, jockey Horacio Karamanos, leading all time rider at Colonial Downs, guided the effort atop the winner for trainer Lilith Boucher. “We’re having a nice run with Virginia-breds this week,” said husband Richard Boucher. The Boucher stable finished one-two last Sunday in the inaugural Virginia Downs event at Great Meadow with Mushroom King and Class Classic.
