FREDRICKSBURG, TX—JULY 2, 2022—Bouncing off a troubled effort in the Sam Houston Classic May 20th, Tee Britt rolled to a one-length win in the $19,500 Hill Country Classic on Saturday at Gillespie County Fairground.

Under jockey Jose Olivo, Tee Britt exploded midway before drawing off while stopping the clock in :20.107 seconds, a 101 speed index into a 10 mph headwind. It was the fourth career win 18 starts for the Cody McDaniel trained son of multiple stakes sire Tee Cos.

Tee Britt won his first career stakes for owners Janie Ortiz and Ronny Joe Willis, Jr.  The Texas-bred 4-year-old was second in the Retama Park Derby last year and a finalist in the Dash For Cash Futurity(G2), EVD Futurity(G3) and Louisiana Juvenile Stakes at 2.
