March graduate Drafted rallies to take Meydan’s Mahab Al Shimaal Stakes

Misty Hollow Farm’s Drafted came from off the pace and closed with a rush to get up late and take the $300,000 Mahab Al Shimaal Stakes (G3) at Meydan on Saturday by a neck. It’s the second straight graded stakes win for the 5-year-old Florida-bred son of Field Commission, trained by Doug Watson, now 12-6-1-0 with earnings of $551,633. He was the first horse to come out of a 2016 two-year-old in training sale and break his maiden, setting a track record in his debut at Keeneland. A two time OBS graduate, he went through the ring at the 2015 August Sale before he was purchased for $35,000 out of the Kim Harrison consignment at the 2016 March Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. watch his under tack video  video of the race
