Last Samurai scores in the Oaklawn Handicap

Willis Horton Racing LLC’s Last Samurai set the pace around the first turn in Saturday’s $1,000,000 Oaklawn Handicap (G2), relinquished the lead on the backstretch, came again on the inside to take command after turning for home and drew away down the stretch to score by four lengths. It’s the first graded stakes win for the 4-year-old son of Malibu Moon, now 15-4-3-2 for trainer Dallas Stewart with earnings of $946,744. He was sold for $175,000 by Gene Recio, Agent, at the 2020 OBS March Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. watch his under tack video
