C2 Racing Stable and La Milagrosa Stable’s White Abarrio relaxed just off the pace in the early going of the Gr. I, $1,000,000 Florida Derby at Gulfstream, rallied on the turn to reach contention in the stretch, took command a furlong out and held off a late run to score by a length and a quarter.
It’s the second straight graded stakes victory for the 3-year-old colt, a two-time OBS graduate. The son of Race Day was sold by Summerfield (Francis & Barbara Vanlangendonck), Agent, at the 2020 Winter Mixed Sale and then purchased for $40,000 out of the Nice and Easy Thoroughbreds consignment at the 2021 March Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 2/5. Now 5-4-0-1 for trainer Saffie A. Joseph Jr., he has now earned $823,650.
