Zedan Racing Stable’s Arabian Lion stalked the leaders on the inside in Belmont’s $400,000 Woody Stephens Stakes (G1), swung out for the drive, took command a furlong from home and eased away to score by a length and a three quarters. It’s the first graded stakes win for the 3-year-old son of Justify, purchased for $600,000 out of the Hidden Brook consignment at the 2022 OBS Spring Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat. Now 7-3-2-0 for trainer Bob Baffert, he has earned $437,600 to date.  watch his under tack video     Spring Sale walking video
