Arabian Knight, Havnameltdown score graded stakes wins

Arabian Knight and Havnameltdown, two members of the Bob Baffert-trained brigade of talented 3-year-olds, posted graded stakes wins over the weekend.

Zedan Racing Stables, Inc.’s Arabian Knight is two for two and a graded stakes winner after a frontrunning 5-1/2 length victory in the $750,000 Southwest Stakes (G3) on Saturday at Oaklawn Park. A 7-1/4 length winner of his debut in a seven furlong maiden test at Keeneland on the Breeders’ Cup undercard in November, the 3-year-old colt by Uncle Mo had no trouble with the two turn distance in the Southwest. He has earned $544,275 to date after his purchase for a sale-topping $2.3-million out of the Top Line Sales consignment by Gary Young on behalf of Zedan Racing after he sped an Under Tack eighth in :9 4/5. watch his under tack video   Spring Sale walking video

Michael E. Pegram, Karl Watson, and Paul Weitman’s Havnameltdown bounced right to the front in Sunday’s $196,000 San Vicente Stakes (G2) at Santa Anita and never looked back, holding fellow OBS graduate Faustin (April ’22) at bay in the stretch and scoring by a length and a half. That’s three graded stakes wins for the two-time OBS graduate, sold first by Beth Bayer, Agent, at the 2021 October Yearling Sale and then purchased for $200,000 out of the Blas Perez Stables consignment at the 2022 Spring Sale after breezing an Under Tack eighth in :9 4/5. Now 5-4-1-0, the 3-year-old Florida-bred colt by Uncaptured has earned $408,000. watch his under tack video     Spring Sale walking video

It’s the first stakes win for the graded stakes placed 6-year-old son of Into Mischief, trained by Richard Mandella, now 17-4-6-5 with $367,560 in earnings. Consigned by Eddie Woods, Agent, to the 2019 OBS March Sale and sold for $550,000 after he turned in an Under Tack quarter in :21 1/5. watch his under tack video
