The late Malibu Moon Sarah Andrew

6th-Santa Anita, $67,500, Msw, 3-27, 3yo/up, 1m, 1:37.99, ft, 7 1/2 lengths.

SET SAIL (c, 3, Malibu Moon–Fleet of Gold {SP, $109,892}, by Medaglia d'Oro) was third on debut Feb. 26 in a seven panel maiden over Santa Anita's main track after altering course early and losing second by 1 1/4 lengths. Trying a mile here, the bay Mandella trainee broke on top and never looked back, coasting home much the best by 7 1/2 lengths as the 2-1 second choice over One More Bid (California Chrome). Q B One (Uncle Mo) finished third while 6-5 favorite Bletchley Park (Nyquist) finished a distant fifth.

The winner is the second surviving foal out of the stakes-placed half-sister to Indyan Giving (A.P. Indy), the dam of Champion 2-year-old colt Game Winner (Candy Ride {Arg}) and GI Churchill Downs S. winner Flagstaff (Speightstown). Set Sail has a 2-year-old half-brother by Tapit as well as a 2022 half-sister by Speightstown. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-1, $48,240.
