SAUDI CROWN (c, 3, Always Dreaming–New Narration, by Tapit), let go at 5-1, chased pacesetting favorite Briterdayzahead (Girvin) while four wide through an opening quarter in :22.29. Some two lengths back following a half in :45.25, the gray colt reeled in the pacesetter with a furlong to run and strode clear with authority to win by 4 3/4 lengths. Wild Thinker (Lord Nelson) chased him home in second, while Briterdayzahead was third. Salde Callaghan purchased Saudi Crown for $45,000 at the 2021 Keeneland January sale and Pedro Lanz, bidding for Faisal Mohammed Alqahtani, acquired him for $240,000 following a :10 flat work at last year's OBS Spril sale. The unraced New Narration sold in foal to Yoshida (Jpn) for $17,000 at the 2021 Keeneland November sale. She produced a filly last year and was bred back to King for a Day. The winner's second dam is graded winner New Normal (Forestry) and third dam is multiple graded-winner New Economy (Red Ransom). Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $58,125.
