8th-Churchill Downs, $125,785, Alw, 5-21, (NW1X), 3yo/up, 6 1/2f, 1:15.88, ft, 1 3/4 lengths.
SAUDI CROWN (c, 3, Always Dreaming–New Narration, by Tapit) was sparkling in his debut Apr. 16 at Keeneland last month when he kicked away by 4 3/4 lengths. That contest included the winner of race seven Sunday afternoon, Briterdayzahead (Girvin), who was third. Looking to clear the next condition here, the 1-2 heavy favorite showed speed early and despite receiving pressure from Sweet Cherry Pie (Twirling Candy) into the far turn–the half was a brisk :45.01–the gray colt responded into the stretch. Set down for a drive past the eighth pole, Saudi Crown showed mettle and with a final push, put away his rival by 1 3/4 lengths. Out of an unraced dam, the winner hails from a female line that includes second dam GSW New Normal (Forestry) and third dam MGSW New Economy (Red Ransom). New Narration produced a 2-year-old unraced colt named Truncator (Exaggerator), who was sent to Panama last year after being purchased at the Fasig-Tipton Yearling sale for $16,000 by Jose Blanco. She also has a yearling filly by Yoshida (Jpn) and was bred last year to King for a Day. Sales History: $45,000 Ylg '21 KEEJAN; $240,000 2yo '22 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $131,085.
