MEDINA SPIRIT will be debuting Friday at Los Alamitos for Zedan Racing and trainer Bob Baffert. The 2-year-old son of Protonico will be ridden by Abel Cedillo and is the morning line favorite at 2-1.
Before moving to Baffert’s main barn at Santa Anita in October, MEDINA SPIRIT rattled off several bullet works over the Los Alamitos surface, so we are hoping he will relish the track on Friday.
Bred in Kentucky by Gail Rice, MEDINA SPIRIT is the first foal out of the juvenile-winning Brilliant Speed mare, Mongolian Changa. He is from the immediate family of champion Forest Flower (G1) and multiple Grade 1 winner High Yield. MEDINA SPIRIT was purchased at the 2020 OBS July Sale from the consignment of Whitman Sales.
