Making his debut for Bob Baffert in the colors of Zedan Racing Sunday, our OBS April purchase from this year – a big, beautiful colt by Justify who shares an eye-catching resemblance – ARABIAN LION dominated maiden special weight company at Santa Anita Park.
It was a gate-to-wire win for ARABIAN LION, breaking alertly keeping at least a length advantage for a majority of the race. In the end ARABIAN LION drew away by 3 lengths to a fellow Bob Baffert-trainee, 3rd another 2 lengths behind that runner, and 4th nearly 15 lengths behind that.
ARABIAN LION completed the 6 furlongs in 1:09.78, earning a 92 Beyer – the 7th fastest speed figure posted by a juvenile this year.
