Bred by Phyllis Wyeth and owned by her Chadds Ford Stable, Union Rags won the Belmont Stakes, trained by Michael Matz.
His 3-year-old son No Dozing, out of Stay Awake by Pulpit, won the Concern Stakes at Laurel on July 22.
Bred by Mr. & Mrs. M. Roy Jackson and owned by their Lael Stables, No Dozing is trained by Arnaud Delacour and was ridden by Daniel Centano.
