Amarish did little to tarnish his reputation as one of--if not the--fastest juveniles on the left coast with another thoroughly dominating victory. A $30,000 purchase as a yearling, the bay flashed potential with a sharp one-furlong breeze in :10 flat (video
) for the OBS March Sale and was hammered down for $200,000. Gelded following the auction, Amarish was sent off the 13-10 chalk for his May 26 debut and made no mistakes, sprinting away to score by some 7 3/4 lengths. Bet into prohibitive favoritism to handle this hike in class, the May foal pressed the pace outside a rival, was given a bit of rein in upper stretch and was never threatened thereafter.
