Check the Label Wins Appalachian

Brereton C. Jones' homebred CHECK THE LABEL (Stormin Fever) had been knocking on the proverbial door in her prior turf stakes attempts, and in Thursday's $100,000 Appalachian S. (G3) at Keeneland, she finally barged right on through to earn her first stakes victory. Under a well-timed Julien Leparoux ride, the Graham Motion sophomore blew past 3-5 favorite Rose Catherine (Speightstown) in the stretch and staved off the late challenge of Bay to Bay (Sligo Bay [Ire]) by three-quarters of a length.
