C2 Racing Stable LLC and La Milagrosa Stable, LLC’s White Abarrio relaxed just off the pace in the early going of the $1,000,000 Florida Derby (G1) at Gulfstream, rallied on the turn to reach contention in the stretch, took command a furlong out and held off a late run to score by a length and a quarter. It’s the second straight graded stakes win for the 3-year-old colt by Race Day, a two-time OBS graduate, sold by Summerfield (Francis & Barbara Vanlangendonck), Agent, at the 2020 Winter Mixed Sale and then purchased for $40,000 out of the Nice and Easy Thoroughbreds consignment at the 2021 March Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5. Now 5-4-0-1 for trainer Saffie A. Joseph, Jr., he has earned $823,650 to date. watch his under tack video   March Sale walking video
