The AR Derby – GI [KYD]
OP Race 2 1 1/8M – Dirt
Three Year Olds
1st Notorious Temper, trained by Night Rider Stables
A new kid on the block for the Derby here as this was a very impressive win for this horse. He was right off the lead early and then went to the front while they went quick. The quick fractions did not hurt him at all and he romped home to win by two lengths.
2nd Graveyard, trained by Mb Stables
Not a bad runner up finish from the Mb Stables charge here as he overcame the terrible post position to work out a decent trip. He closed the best of all to get up for second and was only beaten by two lengths in the end.
3rd Silent Commander, trained by Serenity Stables
A very great closing finish from this horse as he came from dead last early to roll home for third. He made up about five lengths down the stretch to get up for third and he was only beaten by two lengths by the winner.
4th Into Mischief, trained by Nakamura Stables
Not as good as of an effort as he put forward in his last race but he did not run a terrible race. He just ran kind of a flat race and never really fired at all. He was at least able to hit the board in here.
A rather dominating win by the winner here as he went quick early and never looked back to dominate and win by two lengths. He now has a spot in the Derby and should be one of the favorites in the race. Congratulations to Notorious Temper and Night Rider Stables.
