Florida Derby Winner White Abarrio Another OBS Graduate
Sunday, April 3, 2022

    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.
